Rapper and actor LL Cool J's wife Simone recently shared a gem about spirituality on her Instagram page as she took some time out to say a prayer.
"NCIS: LA" actor Todd "LL Cool J" Smith and his wife, jewelry designer, Simone Smith, have much to be thankful for between their beautiful family, successful careers, and health.
Recently, Simone shared a heartwarming picture of herself on her Instagram, where she took time to say a prayer of thanks while encouraging her fans to do the same.
Simone was pictured rocking a tan sweater with blue ripped jeans and matching tan boots. She also wore a black New York baseball cap over her long neat blonde and brown braids.
The designer was heavily accessorized with huge gold hoop earrings and several bangles on her wrist, as well as her beautiful wedding ring. Her fingers were well-manicured in a mauve color.
The picture which was taken by Simone and LL Cool J's daughter captured her looking solemn with her eyes closed and hands held together in prayer. She captioned the post:
"It only takes a few seconds to stop and PRAY. Thank you Jesus ???"
Simone's prayers are a reflection of her passion for God. She is also passionate about her eponymous jewelry line, which carries items that benefit a cause close to her heart, the American Cancer Association.
In 2004, Simone was diagnosed with stage three chondrosarcoma, a rare bone cancer. She underwent reconstructive surgery and beat the dreaded cancer with the help of her husband, LL Cool J.
The "Phenomena" rapper and Simone started the "Beat Cancer Like A Boss" campaign which raises cancer awareness, with celebrity friends like Mary J. Blige and Jordin Sparks.
"I do 10,000 Zooms for a lot of different things because I'm working every day on Rock the Bells."
The rapper also revealed that he planned to release new music following his 2019 record deal. He admitted that although he found the experimental phase challenging, he was working on finding the best approach.
