Watching your favorite celebrity evolve from their youthful ages to maturity is a rather interesting cycle, so much so that you sometimes refuse to believe they’re actually growing up while you are also actually doing same!

Let’s take Lil Bow Wow as a case study. Who would have thought that the skinny 13-year-old boy with braids who shot into the limelight with his platinum-selling album in 2000 would actually “grow up”?

Fast forward 2019, the now 32-year-old man, who dropped “Lil” from his stage name, is a father to a beautiful daughter.

Though we may all know quite a significant number of some of our favorite adult celebrities are parents, it might come as a surprise they are also grandfathers and grandmothers and they’ve actually held those titles for a while.

With their children probably not as popular as they are or not even in the limelight, news pertaining to “grandparenthood” among celebrities are usually rare.

In that regard, Nsuri has decided to share with you these black celebrities you probably didn’t know have grandchildren.

Check them out below:
