One of the greatest rappers in entertainment is also a proud grandfather. After his 20 year marriage, three children, and three grandchildren, there is no doubt Snoop is a family man.
After many years of becoming one of the most famous rappers in the world, Snoop Dogg’s news is now revolving other issues, like the fact he is not only a great musician but also a proud grandfather.
Cordoba, his third grandchild and his second son’s daughter, was captured in the most adorable photo posing in front of the camera wearing a yellow sundress and colorful sneakers. Her whole outfit matches her lovely eyes.
The photo, which was posted on Cordell’s Instagram, shows him at the back talking on the phone. He captioned the image with “Daddy always on the phone”, but you can not really catch him because the little girl takes the spotlight.
The rapper whose real name is Cordozar Broadus, Jr. is known for being a family man. He and his long time wife, Shante Broadus, share three children. Corde, who is 25 years old, Cordell, who is 22 by now, and 20-year-old Cori, their only daughter.
The family has grown up in time. Five years ago, the eldest son, Corde, had his first child, Zion, making Snoop Dogg a grandfather for the first time. We could see how proud he was of his son and grandson, by his posts on social media.
Four years later, Corde had another child with his girlfriend Soraya, a baby girl named Eleven Love. A year later, they had their second child together, Kai Love, but unfortunately, he died just 10 days after he was born. It was one of the saddest news they had to face as a family.
When it happened in September 2019, Corde posted a photo of him and his then-pregnant girlfriend, celebrating Eleven’s first birthday. He captioned the image with very touching words. He said:
“I think we missed the biggest lesson tho. My son did all he needed to do in his 10 days here on earth. Kai wants all of you to kno he’s doing great and wants to continue to inspire those who light is dim”
However, a third grandchild was good news for grandpa Snoop, when Corde and his girlfriend, model Phia Barragan, had their first daughter, Cordoba. Today, the musician and his wife are the proudest grandparents they can be.
Long before Snoop Dogg’s successful career started he was already dating his current wife, Shante. He began his way to stardom in the early 90s after being discovered by, today his friend and producer, Dr. Dre, but that did not split the high school sweethearts.

His global fame and millions of record sales almost brought their marriage to fall apart, but their love was strong enough to overcome many problems like their daughter’s illness and conflicts between them that almost ended up in divorce.
Today, Snoop and Shante have been married for more than 20 years and together they have raised a close and loving family.
