Snoop Dogg’s family is dealing with some heartbreaking news after his infant grandson died just ten days after being born.

The 47-year-old rapper’s son, Corde Broadus, shared the sad news on Instagram that his son Kai had “died in his arms” after being born less than two weeks ago, per E! News in a piece published Friday.

“Kai Love 9/15/19 – 9/25/19 ///// My Son Kai brought so much love and positivity into this world,” Broadus captioned a clip on his social media account of his baby boy all bundled up. (RELATED: Snoop Dogg Delivers Epic Rant As Lakers’ Playoff Hopes Dwindle)

The cause of death or any other details were not yet released.

The “Gin and Juice” hitmaker first became a grandpa in January 2015 with the birth of Corde’s son, Zion. Then once again with the birth of Corde’s daughter, Elleven in August 2018.

Corde shared news with the world of Elleven’s arrival with a post on his social media account, per People magazine.

“@sorayaspanish did an all natural birth with no [epidural] or drugs from beginning to end,” the proud father captioned his post.
