Coco Austin, Chanel Nicole Marrow, and Ice-T attend the 13th Annual Rookie USA Fashion Show on September 06, 2023 in New York City.

Ice-T's little girl is ready to let her own star power shine.

Attending the Law & Order: SVU 25th anniversary celebration in New York City on Tuesday night with wife Coco Austin, the rapper, 65, opened up about his youngest getting bit by the acting bug.

When PEOPLE asked if daughter Chanel, 8, would ever appear in a cameo on the show — since Austin, 44, has on three separate occasions — Ice-T enthusiastically replied, "Hell yeah!"

"You know Chanel and Ryan Buggle [who plays Noah, son of Mariska Hargitay's Olivia Benson] have the same agents. We didn’t even know that. She just got an agent," Austin revealed.

"Chanel wanted to be here tonight. She's mad at us right now," Ice-T admitted. "She looked at the babysitter like, 'Really?! Really?'"

The couple told her that "Mommy and Daddy had work," when she continued to object, though she was still sad to miss the event.

In September, Chanel was photographed walking down the runway at the 13th Annual Rookie USA Fashion Show during New York Fashion Week. Wearing a matching blue sweatsuit, Chanel strutted down the runway and blew a kiss as she reached the end.

In another photo from the event, the proud parents smiled and posed together with Chanel while they walked the red carpet.

Sharing some moments from the event on Instagram, Austin wrote, "So its Fashion Week in NYC!! Chanel hit her first fashion show for @rookieusa and wore @converse and @levis . It takes a lot of guts to strut down the runway especially for her age."

"So proud she pulled it off, she was so nervous<" the mom continued. "She told me she was so embarrassed when she heard me yelling so hard from the sidelines..lol."

Alongside Chanel, Ice-T is dad to daughter LeTesha, 47, whom he shares with his high school girlfriend Adrienne, and son Tracy Jr., 32, with ex-girlfriend Darlene Ortiz.

Speaking with PEOPLE in August, Ice-T opened up about some of his views on parents monitoring their kids' media.

"The key to having kids is having parental guidance — not necessarily parental control, but guidance to help them understand what it is," he explained.

"My daughter was listening to 2 Live Crew and whatnot. My son used to sing Wu-Tang Clan without saying motherf---er, and it was amazing," the Hip-Hop Treasures co-host said of his older two kids. "He'd sing, 'Bring the ruckus, bring the mother-mother ruckus.'"

He continued, "I just felt like it's all rock. And when you talk, it's kind of like they grow up with you and you share that common bond which is beautiful. It's beautiful."
