Rapper and singer Nelly recently celebrated his 46th birthday and his longtime girlfriend Shantel Jackson took to Instagram to appreciate him with a lovely birthday message.


Birthdays are fun days, and because of the amount of love that comes with it, they are days people do not want to end. Shantel Jackson, the longtime girlfriend of rapper and singer Nelly, took to Instagram to shower him with a sweet message.

Taking to Instagram, Jackson shared a picture of herself and Nelly laughing and wearing huge goofy grins. In the shot that was shared, she wore a gray-colored "Beverly Hills 2020" shirt on top of black leather pants.

On the other hand, the birthday man had on a camo round neck shirt and black trousers. A heavily studded watch was seen hanging off one arm as the other was wrapped around Jackson's waist.

The pair looked happy as they were deep in laughter, and although Nelly's eyes were not in view, thanks to his shades, the goofy grin he had was enough to show his happiness. Captioning the post, Shantel wrote:


"HAPPY BIRTHDAY BIG HEAD! ❤️ @nelly so proud of you, how far you made it on @dancingabc and the work you've put into it!"


Jackson also asked her fans to show their support to Nelly, who is currently competing on season 29 of "Dancing With the Stars," by tuning in and voting for him to remain in the competition.

Following the post was an onslaught of comments from fans and lovers of the couple. Many used the opportunity to wish Nelly a happy birthday too.

The pair is yet to take their relationship to the next level.


While some concentrated on wishing Nelly a happy birthday, some fans applauded him for the incredible dance moves he had been displaying on the show. A fan acknowledged:

"He might not be the best 'technical' dancer, but he is one of the most entertaining to watch! You can tell he is having fun out there?❤️."


Although Nelly is not a dancer, he has been doing incredibly well in this season of "Dancing With the Stars" alongside his dance partner Daniella Karagah. The pair have been dancing exceptionally well and won the hearts of many viewers of the show.

During one of his dance routines where he had to dance to The Weeknd's "Can't Feel My Face," Nelly dedicated the entire routine to his girlfriend while intimating to viewers that the song was one of his and Jackson's favorite songs.

Jackson and Nelly have been dating for almost six years now, and although there have been rumors of them getting engaged, the pair is yet to take their relationship to the next level.

Through it all, Shantel and Nelly have constantly proven that they love each other and are ready to have each other's backs despite what life might throw their way.
