Snoop Dogg became a grandfather at age 43 when his first grandchild, Zion, was born in January 2015. A few months later, he talked about what kind of grandparent he was going to be with Today. “I’m going to be a gullible, get-away-with-everything kind of grandpa,” he said. “It’s just a spark of joy just to look in his eyes and to be able to hold him. I thank my oldest son for making me a grandfather.” In 2018, the rapper’s oldest son, Cordé Broadus, had a second child, a daughter named Eleven.
