Smith and Cool J celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary in August. Their celebration, besides being remarkable, also proved that Black love is well and truly still alive. Cool J previously revealed that his and Smith's relationship started when he was 19 years and a mutual friend introduced them.
Twenty-five years after their wedding, the couple shares three daughters and a son and has maintained a healthy and happy union by keeping God first in everything they do.
The couple has been through so much together, including Smith's cancer battle. In 2004, she was diagnosed with stage 3 chondrosarcoma, a rare bone cancer.
LL Cool J stood by his wife throughout her difficulties and helped her with her recovery. Speaking about his dedication to his wife at that point, the rapper said it would be wrong to abandon a person in such a foxhole, adding that he had to be in the foxhole with Smith.
LL Cool J found fame as a rapper and was successful with it before he transitioned into acting which he is also good at, as seen in his starring role in "NCIS: Los Angeles."
The rapper's family initially supported his rap career but lost their enthusiasm for it when he started oversleeping. He had to leave the house and was sleeping on trains. After a while, he began contributing to the family's upkeep.
Once his family saw he was becoming successful, they welcomed him back with open arms. LL Cool J's story is very inspirational and shows that one has to stay dedicated to their dreams, just like his wife noted in her Instagram message.
