Legendary rapper Snoop Dogg could not hold back his feelings as he recently gushed over a stunning picture of his wife of 23 years, Shante Broadus flaunting her beautiful curves.
Over the years, rapper Snoop Dogg has built a reputation as a gangsta rapper. However, underneath the several layers of his misdeeds, the music mogul is a devoted family man who dotes on his wife and kids incessantly.
Recently, the 48-year-old rapper took to his Instagram page to share a beautiful picture of his wife, Shante Broadus. In the photo, Shante posed in a black customized T-shirt and black leggings.

Shante conveniently placed her hand on her hip and the outfit perfectly accentuated her curves. She had her hair neatly braided with colorful beads attached to the tips and completed the look with a pair of white sneakers.
Snoop Dogg could not hide his feelings and dropped some reassuring words for the mother of his kids in the caption of the photo. Hewrote
"She's the 1 not the 2. in life u learn to hold on to who hold u down So thank. U @bosslady_ent for loving me..."
Shante also shared several pictures of herself wearing the same outfit on her Instagram page. In all the images, she posed at the foot of a staircase with her left hand firmly on her hip while brandishing a bright smile.
Snoop Dogg and his wife began dating when they were in high school. They eventually tied the knot in 1997, nearly four years after the rapper began his music career.
Their marriage was rocked by a cheating scandal.
The couple share three children together, sons Corde (born 1994), Cordell (born 1997), and daughter Cori (born 1999). Snoop Dogg also shares a son, Julian Corrie Broadus, 22, with Laurie Hammond.
Throughout his music career that spans nearly three decades, Shante has been by his side. She has also stuck with him through the challenging times, including his constant run-ins with the law.
The couple's marriage has endured its fair share of setbacks over the years. In 2004, they nearly divorced, but they later reconciled and renewed their marital vows in 2008.
More recently, their marriage was rocked by a cheating scandal, when popular Instagram model Celina Powell spoke out about an alleged affair with the "Gin & Juice" rapper in 2018.
Even though Powell released footage of herself engaged in sexual activity with Snoop Dogg earlier in the year, the lovebirds managed to remain committed to each other and seem to have moved past the scandal.
Apart from Snoop's wife, Shante, the only woman who seems to have the rapper's unwavering loyalty is veteran TV host Martha Stewart. The duo has enjoyed an unusual friendship that has spanned more than a decade.
Snoop and Shante are currently one of the most admired couples in the entertainment industry, but it has taken a lot of understanding and forgiveness for them to make it this far.
