Snoop Dogg's second son, Cordell Broadus, celebrated his model girlfriend and mother of his child, Phia Barragan, on her birthday with different snaps on his Instagram story.
With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the world has adjusted by adopting measures to curb the spread of the disease. While sporting events and movie productions may have rescheduled a later date to continue, special occasions such as weddings and birthday parties are not celebrated elaborately with a lot of people in attendance due to the compulsory social distancing measures.

This doesn't stop the good wishes from loved ones and family. Cordell honored his beau, whom he shares a daughter with, via his recent post. The shared photos had a birthday shout-out directed towards the celebrant. He wrote:
"Happy C Day"
The father of one also shows as much love to his daughter and seems excited with fatherhood. Just last week, he posted a picture of the little princess with him in the background. From time to time, Cordell shares snaps of his mini-me online. The younger Broadus seems to be family-oriented like his dad.
After discovering that their 11-year-old had the lupus disease, the couple decided to stick together and support their child through it all.

Snoop Dogg and his wife, Shante Broadus, are more like a power couple even though their marriage nearly hit rock bottom in 2004, after the rapper decided to end the union.
Their daughter's lupus diagnosis happened to be a blessing in disguise that saved the Broadus' from parting ways. After discovering that their 11-year-old had the lupus disease, the couple decided to stick together and support their child through it all.
It's been more than a decade, and it appeared that their decision to stay together was the best thing to have happened to the couple. According to the rapper:
"It was up to me to try to put it back...But at the same time, it's like, you know, some people in life are chosen for you. And I feel like we're chosen for each other."
The pair have both witnessed the joy of being grandparents. Cordell Broadus, their first son, welcomed his first child named Zion, in 2015. The first time being a grandpa was as exciting as being a father for Snoop as the entertainer told his fans online that he's proud of the new title.
While Snoop has three grandkids from his two sons, his only daughter, Cori, is yet to give him any grandchild, but the 20-year-old who recently got a face tattoo is as talented as her dad and has a rising career as a musician.
