The Doggfather has now become a grandfather. Snoop Dogg's eldest son, Cordé Broadus, became a father to a new baby boy, Zion, giving the legendary rapper his very first grandchild.

In a photo posted to Instagram, Broadus, 20, showed the world his new bundle of joy with the caption, "Iron Lion ZION." Though the California rapper was out of town during his grandson's birth, he still made sure to share his excitement on social media: "Zion. U have a lot of love waitin' on u grandson!!," he captioned under a collage celebrating the birth.

The "Let's Get Blown" emcee's youngest son, Cordell — who is set to star in a football-themed mini-series on ESPN, was present for Zion's birth.

Congratulations to the Broadus family on their new addition!
