Mariska Hargitay Meets Baby Chanel: She Has Her Daddy Ice-T’s Eyes

01/27/2016 at 01:30 PM ET

SVU‘s newest addition has already won over Lieutenant Benson.

Mariska Hargitay spent some adorable one-on-one time with Law and Order: Special Victims Unit costar Ice-T‘s daughter Chanel Nicole on Tuesday, dubbing the 8-week-old “#IceIceBaby.”

Chanel, Ice-T’s daughter with wife Nicole “Coco” Austin, seemed to take to Hargitay in a picture captured during their meet-and-greet.

“This baby #CouldNotBeAnyCuter,” Hargitay, 52, wrote, adding the hashtags “#CocosChanel #LetsGetThisBabyOnScreen #AStarIsBorn #DaddysEyes #LoveHeadbandOnFleek.”


The tiny cutie has already inherited her mother’s fashion sense, and was dressed up in a floral print onesie and a embellished “Love” headband.

My little lovebug… This is the new sneaky look she gives

“Ohhh now this is a pretty lady..I like her,” Chanel wrote on her own Instagram account alongside another photo with Hargitay. “My parents say her name is @therealmariskahargitay?”

Hargitay, who has three children of her own, has starred alongside Ice on the procedural drama since he joined the cast in 2000.

Cute baby, but I swear, Mariska is getting prettier with age. Love her!

That baby girl is beautiful.

I don’t think the baby looks overdressed. I have seen “normal moms” overdo. The only think that is a decoration is the headband. That baby is loved.

I’ve watched every season of SVU, lovee the show! Mariska looks great!! Chanel is such a cutie!!!!

Mariska is seriously one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood. Why isn’t L’oreal knocking down her door? AND let’s not forget the fact that she is a woman on a mission.

The baby is beautiful and I love Ice-T and Coco. As for Mariska, it just gets more beautiful every day. She’s just a class act.

She has his eye shape and his ‘look’ with her mother’s beautiful blue eyes.


The baby is so tiny. And it’s very beautiful. I think it will look more like Coco. Mariska, my favorite actress, seems enraptured with the baby. I love it on SVU and she is a beautiful and elegant lady.

Mariska holds that baby more naturally than Coco does.

Cute baby but I wish that people wouldn’t put those ugly headbands on babies. They are probably very uncomfortable, yet if baby cried, people my think she’s hungry, or has a dirty diaper and they may never guess the headband is giving her a headache.

Mariska is so beautiful…..she’s one classy lady. Perhaps People magazine can start doing stories on someone as awesome as Mariska…now there’s talent. I would love to see more stories on talented people such as Mariska that that horrible low talent Kardashian / Jenner family……

I love Mariska! She’s so classy, and down to earth. She’s beautiful just like her mom. Maybe Coco can take a few lessons from her. You don’t need to take all your clothes off to be sexy. Less is always more. Beautiful baby.
