Snoop's fans were over the moon with the adorable grandpa and grandson duo, flocking to the comment section to praise the rapper for being such a caring grandpa and gushing over how adorable the young Zion looked.

Snoop Dogg has a very large family tree just in the entertainment industry, including singer Brandy, rapper Ray J, and many more.

Snoop's grandson, Zion, is the son of his 25-year-old son, Corde Broadus, and his now ex-girlfriend, Jessica Kyzer.

Corde also shares his daughter, Eleven, with his new girlfriend, Soraya, with whom he also shared his young son, Kai Love, who was only alive for ten days before he passed away in 2019 in his father's arms. When the boy died, Corde, announced the tragic news on Instagram with the note:

"My son did all he needed to do in his ten days here on earth. He died in my arms, and that feeling of energy will never leave me."

Snoop did not directly comment on his grandson's passing but instead posted a cryptic message on his Instagram, advising his followers to "trust God" whenever they are facing something they do not understand.
