Simone made a special shout-out to LaTanya's husband Samuel L. Jackson and their daughter, Zoe.



This move was a sweet one from Simone, who can understand how much work having a family requires.

According to Country Living, Simone and LL Cool J have been together for more than a decade.



During their years together, the couple experienced some difficulties, especially in 2004, when doctors diagnosed Simone with stage 3 cancer.

Luckily, the duo, along with their children, overcame that particular obstacle and is enjoying each other's presence.

However, Simone and LL aren't the only couples who's faced challenges in their marriage as LaTanya, and her husband has too. According to Essence, LaTanya and Samuel's union clocked 38 years in 2018.

Despite the troubles they have weathered together in those years, the pair is as strong as ever. The reason for that LaTanya claims is having a word(s) for your marriage. 



The chosen word(s) must be something that both parties can relate to and carry out without hesitation.

Also, the actress stated, that a couple should ensure they sort out whatever issues they have before they go to bed at night.
