Speaking to reporters at Saturday night's An Evening With Dick Wolf at the 33rd Annual PaleyFest Los Angeles, Ice-T had lots to say about taking and sharing pictures of the beautiful Chanel Nicole:
"I'm taking a lot of pictures. I'm that same guy that you go, ‘Oh, my daughter..' and before I know it I'm showing you pictures. I said that I'm not going to be that guy. But now I'm just like, ‘Wait, look, and, ‘Wait, look at this one,' and, ‘Wait a minute, hold up'. You can't help it. You're just happy."
The rapper was also retrospective during his interview, noting how much has changed between the time his older two children — daughter Letesha, 39, and son Tracy, 23 — were born and now with daughter Chanel Nicole:
"I think the clarity that I have with this child. When I had my first kid I was in the middle of the wildness of becoming Ice-T, all the people that were after me, and I had my head down. I really wasn't concentrating on them, I was concentrating on survival. Now, everything is a lot more mellow. We bring the baby home, she's crying, I see her, they sleep with me every night. I'm really witnessing her grow everyday, so I'm more conscious of it."
The things you appreciate as you gain the wisdom of age, right?!
