Samaria shared a gallery of snaps that show herself as an infant with her Father. In the first photo, Samaria is in her dad's arms, standing next to her mother, Simone Smith, and her oldest sister, Italia, now 29.

Nina shared two sweet photos of herself with her father: one in which she is cuddled in his arms, and another in which he is helping her blow out the candles on her second birthday cake.

Fortunately, Simone beat her cancer, and she and LL Cool J participated in an awareness campaign for the American Cancer Society called  "Beat Cancer Like a Boss." Since then, the couple have been extremely active, raising money for cancer research.

MUSIC IN THE FAMILY

It looks like LL Cool has passed on his musical genes (his grandfather was a jass musician) to his children, and his daughter Nina celebrated her 19th birthday by dropping the video for her first single, "Call Me," on Instagram. 

Nina has a gorgeous voice, and a unique sound, and she has may well rival her dad as the family star in the years to come. Looks like LL Cool and Simone have plenty to boast about, with their 4 offspring.
