Some of the rapper’s fans have also praised the 49-year-old for having strong genes, with some claiming that his grandchildren took after some of his facial features like his nose and eyes.
Shortly after his granddaughter, Chateau, was born, fans congratulated the rapper, while some added that the toddler resembled the famous rapper.
BEING A GRANNY
Snoop Dogg tasted the joy of being a grandfather for the first time in 2015 following the birth of his first grandson Zion from his eldest son Corde Broadus and his ex-girlfriend Jessica Kyzer.
The veteran rapper shared the good news on his social media, noting how proud he was to be a grandfather. Of course, the entire Broadus clan was overjoyed by the new addition.
In 2018, Corde and his girlfriend Soraya Love welcomed their daughter Elleven, making it the second time the rapper would be a grandfather. Later on, his son Cordell Broadus revealed that the rapper’s third grandchild, Cordoba, was on the way.
Cordé and Soraya were pregnant with another child, a baby boy named Kai. Sadly, the little one died 10 days after his birth. The family mourned the loss of their child and thanked their fans for their support.
This year, Snoop Dogg and his wife have welcomed two grandchildren. Sky Love was born earlier this year, while their granddaughter named Chateau was born in March. The newborn made Snoop’s son Cordell Broadus and his wife, Phia, parents for the second time.
SNOOP DOGG: A FATHER OF FOUR
The iconic rapper shares three children with his high school sweetheart: sons Corde and Cordell and their sister, Cori. The 49-year-old rapper also has a son, Julian, from a relationship with Laurie Holmond.
His oldest son Cordé was born when the rapper and Shante were in their twenties, and the rapper’s career was beginning to bloom. Cordé was born on August 21, 1994, three years before Snoop Dogg and Shante walked down the aisle.
