Chanel Nicole may be Ice-T and Coco’s first human baby, but Spartacus, their bulldog that passed away after knee surgery will always be considered their first bundle of joy. When the beloved family pet passed away the weekend before Chanel’s first birthday on Monday, Coco decided delay her planned party at Manhattan’s Sugar Factory to honor him.

“He was my 1st baby with Ice. There’ll never be another dog like him,” Austin posted on Sunday announcing the 6-year-old dog’s death. “Everybody that knew him thought he was very human like and so lovable.”
Ice-T shared that although the family has been dealing with sadness, Chanel is their true blessing and wished her a happy first birthday.
