Ice-T Makes It In The Music & The Movies
All the way back in 1983, the world gained a taste of the Ice-T magic thanks to his debut single, "Cold Wind Madness." The extremely popular "Body Rock" followed this. If these hits weren't enough, the man showed us he was multitalented when he entered the acting arena.
From his first moment on screen in the "Breakin'" movie in 1984, fans knew they were witnessing the startings of a real star. The veteran celebrity has also been on the hit police drama, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit as Detective Odafin Tutuola since 2000, and he shows no signs of slowing down!

When Ice-T began dating Darlene Ortiz, some thought this was it for him, but it was a short-lived union. It was when he finally met Nicole "Coco Marie" Austin that he would find his soulmate and get married in 2002. Coco shared their romantic story on her blog saying:
"We got married pretty fast. He became my best friend and this instantly was someone I didn’t want to live without. We just knew we wanted to be together, we were like yin and yang ... We got married in Vegas at Cesar’s Palace during New Year’s Eve and it was the most romantic, beautiful moment ever!"
Meet His Eldest Child, Letesha Marrow
Ice-T became a dad very early in his life. The birth of his first child, Letesha Marrow, happened on the 20th of March 1976 in New York City. She was the bundle of joy from his relationship with Adrienne Letesha. The couple was still in high school when they became parents.
