LL Cool J's wife, Simone Smith had nothing but pleasant words for NBA legend Magic Johnson and his wife, Cookie, as she commemorated their 29th anniversary.


It is a celebration of love for NBA alum Magic Johnson and his wife Cookie for their 29th wedding anniversary. To celebrate the couple, LL Cool J's wife, Simone Smith took to her Instagram page with lovely words as she praised the couple.

Smith let fans know that Cookie and Magic were among her favorite couples as she shared a snapshot of the retired NBA star and his wife.

Magic looked impeccable as always in a black shirt while his longtime love rocked an elegant batik dress. Smith captioned the post with:

"Happy 29th anniversary to one of my favorite couples in this world!! You are true blessings and lights in this world. Keep shining and inspiring."


This is not the first time this year that Smith will be showing her affection to the Johnsons as she was early to send her birthday wishes to Magic a day before his birthday in August.

Cookie opened up on her pain after learning that Magic was HIV positive. 


The mother-of-four shared another snapshot as a throwback where she and her hubby twinned in hippy outfits while Cookie and her spouse rocked their own upscale attires.

Last year, the couple's 28th anniversary was no less a splendid affair. On his Instagram page, Magic poured out his feelings in a lengthy post where he let fans know that marrying Cookie was one of his life's best decisions. 


The sports mogul posted throwback snapshots that chronicled his proposal and their wedding day. In his caption, Magic made it known that he knew he would marry Cookie three months after they started dating. He then ended the heartwarming message with:

"I look forward to many more years together. I love you dearly… Happy Anniversary!"


Cookie returned the favor with a post on the same platform where she shared romantic throwback photos while gushing over her husband and reminding him of her love.  

Once in a revealing chat, Cookie opened up on her pain after learning that Magic was HIV positive. Cookie explained that the news was devastating as it had her in a weak moment.

The mother-of-two told GMA's Robin Roberts that she was very afraid that she fell to her knees. She also mentioned that there was no time to be angry or question him.

The HIV diagnosis came some days before the couple's 1991 wedding. Cookie courageously went with the initial plan and married her spouse on September 14, 1991.
