Rapper and actor Ice-T and his model/reality star wife, Coco Austin, announced on social media the passing of Spartacus the Supermodel, an English Bulldog that Austin called her “1st baby” with Ice-T. Spartacus was six years old.
“My heart is hurting tremendously,” Austin wrote on her Instagram page. “Today Sparty died after knee surgery complications. He was my 1st baby with Ice. There’ll never be another dog like him.”

A few years ago, the couple launched an Instagram page for Spartacus and Max, which includes photos of both Spartacus and Max as well as the couple’s baby girl and, of course, Ice-T and Coco. Coco Austin told her fans that the Spartacus and Max page will live on without Spartacus. The couple are obviously super sad that they lost one of their best friends. Hopefully, Max will help to fill the huge void left in their hearts.
