Snoop Dogg shared a throwback photo in honor of his 19th wedding anniversary to Shante Broadus.

"19. Years today @bosslady_ent Happy anniversary been a1 from day 1. thanks for my kids," Snoop — who has four children with his wife — captioned the throwback Instagram pic, which appears to be a high school prom portrait of the pair.

Broadus began dating Snoop when they were teenagers, before he took on his now infamous moniker and acquired an over-$100 million net worth. The rapper ultimately put a ring on his high school sweetheart's finger, marrying Broadus in 1997.

The pair did run into some tough times, leading the rapper to file for divorce in 2004, citing "irreconcilable differences," but the split didn't last long. "I was trying to get a divorce, but I went back home and I fell back in love with my wife and kids. A lot of times you get cloudy," Snoop told MTV at the time. "This music industry is a mother, man, and it'll take your vision and blur it. But God is good, so I understand that I need my wife and my kids in my life — so I threw the papers away. I don't want to get a divorce. So if you hear about a divorce, it'll be my wife divorcing me. It won't be me divorcing her...And I made a mistake, so I'm trying to get back right."

The couple renewed their wedding vows in front of 200 friends and family on Jan. 12, 2008, on Charlie Wilson's 20-acre ranch, which was a surprise ceremony for Snoop's wife.
