Try as you might, it can be next to impossible to get the songs from your kids’ favorite movies and TV shows out of your head.
I don’t have any children, but my niece’s obsession with “Moana” was enough for me to learn all the words to “How Far I’ll Go.” Celebrity parents are no different. During a recent appearance on “The Tonight Show,” rapper and actor Ice-T, who is typically known for his tough-guy image, showed his softer side when he and Jimmy Fallon broke into a duet of the “Paw Patrol” theme song.
After crediting his 2-year-old daughter, Chanel, with helping him to prioritize his health to make sure he’s around for her, Ice-T, 59, admitted that he does spoil her, including with a “Paw Patrol”-themed birthday bash. When Ice-T starts singing the theme song from the children’s cartoon, Fallon effortlessly joins in. Check out the whole hilarious clip below:
When Fallon asked if Ice-T’s daughter likes any other cartoons aside from “Paw Patrol,” the rapper said Chanel does enjoy Mickey Mouse, whom the rapper called an “O.G.” The two men then start singing the “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse” theme song. These guys really know their stuff when it comes to children’s favorites!
It seems like the entertainer has no problem balancing work and family life. In 2016, he posted a photo of himself alongside his wife, Coco Austin, holding their daughter outside a jet, with their two dogs.
“The ICE family just touched down in AZ. I’m doing the new BC album out here and we have a ONE off concert,” he wrote.
Austin previously opened up about parenting in the public eye, noting that she and Ice-T are scrutinized for everything they do simply because they’re celebrities.
“We face scrutiny whether you have a baby or not, so having a baby, you’re like in this little microscope, because they want you to do something wrong so they can say something bad, that you’re a bad mother,” she told Us Weekly. “But we’re just like regular moms, we’re still trying to figure it out. We don’t know everything, we’re not perfect.”
Between watching “Paw Patrol” with dad and having a mom that keeps it real, it certainly seems like little Chanel is loved!
