In the one short year she’s been alive, Chanel Nicole, daughter of Edgewater celebrity couple rapper and actor Ice-T and model Coco Austin, has charmed us with her adorable smile, endless array of outfits and photogenic sweetness. It’s been a busy year for her as she got to travel with mom and dad all over the country, become a social media star with 594,000 followers across Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, befriend the family’s dogs, Spartacus and Maximus, and make her official modeling debut in British Vogue. That’s more than some people accomplish in a lifetime! We can’t wait to see what her second year brings, and wish her the happiest of baby birthdays!
It was hard to choose, but here are 12 times Chanel, who’ll be celebrating with her first birthday party at Sugar Factory in Manhattan, utterly stole our hearts.
When she got her own social media accounts minutes after being born.
When she matched her bathing suit look with her mom’s.
When she made friends with her new toy.
When she rode Spartacus’s back (though this may not have been as much fun for him as it was for her). This is especially touching since Spartacus sadly passed away on Sunday after complications from knee surgery.
And did baby yoga.
When she wore dresses like this sequined one that we wish came in adult sizes.
When she wore a Bodycount onesie and watched her dad’s band’s soundcheck, complete with adorable pink baby headphones to protect her ears.
When she rocked a cowboy hat, proving she will likely have a varied sense of style when she’s older.
When she made this super adorable face.
When Chanel used her adorableness to get dad Ice-T to make an equally cute face in return.
When she dressed up for Halloween as a flower, one of five outfits mama Coco picked out for her.
When she donned a similar look with the Snapchat toast filter.
