Has there ever been a happier baby than Chanel Nicole, the seven-month-old daughter of Edgewater celebrity couple Ice-T and Coco Austin? She just looks so thrilled to be alive no matter what she’s wearing or doing and her latest photos are no exception. Just when I think I’ve seen Chanel at her most adorable, like when she’s twinning with her mom or getting a kiss from family pet bulldog Maximus, she somehow manages to outdo herself by grinning extra widely in her bikini while on Coco’s lap.

Happiest baby ever.. @babychanelnicole smiles for no reason ..lol #ChanelNicole #hangbythepool

Not only is Chanel cute when she’s awake, she’s also utterly charming when she’s asleep, which she can do at home or even at the circus. She’s all the more entrancing now that we know thanks to Coco’s latest Snapchat (follow her at cocosworld100) that Chanel likes to sleep while touching her mama, which Coco explained helps her get to sleep too since she can’t get up and wander around while baby is snoozing. And she’s a SpongeBob SquarePants fan already. Awww…

This will never get old…. I was meant to be a mommy… (Snapchat- cocosworld100)

Chanel got an early wake up call on Monday when she and Coco started their day at five a.m. to join husband and dad Ice-T on the set of his show Law and Order: Special Victims Unit. We feel your pain, Chanel! Who wants to get up that early? Not babies and certainly not most adults. At least she was able to sleep her way through those morning hours snuggled up close to her mom.
