- Calvin Cordozar Broadus, known to many as Snoop Dogg, is a grandfather of six
- Away from the music, glitz and glamour of celebrity life, he is a wonderful family man
- This was evidenced by a recent photo of him babysitting his youngest grandson Chateau
American artist Snoop Dogg, whose real name is Calvin Cordozar Broadus is a grandfather of six.
He shared a photo of himself babysitting his youngest grandchild Chateau Broadus, who was born Wednesday, March 10, 2021.
Chateau is the second born child to Snoop's son Cordell Broadus and his wife Phia Barragan.
In the photo, a greying Snoop is seen having quality grandpa-grandson time with the little one neatly tucked in his arms.
"Grandpa's youngest grandson," he captioned it.
When Chateau was born two and a half months ago, Snoop’s wife Shante Broadus took to Instagram to announce the great news.
“I was down earlier but she just took all of that away. My sixth grandbaby girl #ChateauBroaudus,” she wrote.
Chateau's father Cordell is the youngest of Snoop's three children, known for having been a good footballer both in high school and at the University of California (UCLA).
Snoop the Family Man
Many of those who saw the photo were amazed at how the Young, Wild, and Free singer slotted into the grandpa role so seamlessly given the carefree nature he portrays in public.
The image also brought back memories of Snoop the artist, and some of the most memorable lyrics he's churned out.
"Snoop Dogg, you made our days really happy. We love you as we age."
"His song "Taking my time to perfect the beat and I still got love for the streets its the D-R-E"
"Congrats brother @snoopdogg! May the most high bless you with many more."
It is also impressive to note that Snoop and Shante's marriage remains one of the longest and most solid among celebrities, having been together for 23 years.
In a world where celebrity unions crumble before hitting the first decade, theirs is commendable.
