Snoop Dogg Celebrates 19 Years of Marriage With the Best Throwback Pic Ever

Give it up for one of the most long lasting relationships in Hollywood.
Snoop Dogg recently celebrated his 19-year wedding anniversary with wife Shante Broadus, his high school sweetheart. And lucky for us, the 44-year-old rapper shared one of the most incredible celebrity throwbacks ever for the occasion, featuring the couple attending a school dance together.
"19 years today," Snoop Dogg captioned the snap on Instagram. "Happy anniversary been a1 from day 1. Thanks for my kids."
Snoop and Shante tied the knot on June 12, 1997. The couple has three children together -- Corde, Cordell, and daughter Cori. Although Snoop filed for divorce from Shante in 2004, citing irreconcilable differences, they quickly reconciled.
"She's always right," Snoop gushed about his wife in a 2013 interview with Queen Latifah. "Because you gotta understand the turmoil and stuff that I put her through, in my journey on becoming successful, because I had no understanding of how I was doing her, how I was hurting her, and how I was betraying myself, until I became a man and realized that I had to love this woman who loved me and had my kids, and put my life in perspective and let my music and my business be secondary."
Snoop and Shante's youngest child also took to Instagram to wish her parents a happy anniversary, sharing a throwback of the two in which the "Gin and Juice" rapper rocks quite the afro.
"I love it. I mean, being from Long Beach, California, and an L.A. resident, living in Inglewood, we need this," he told ET exclusively. "The market is so ripe and ready for it. We deserve a sports team and we finally got an NFL football team."
