(Photos) Too Cute! See Photos From LL Cool J’s Daughter Moroccan Themed Baby Shower

Posted On : February 25, 2018


Back in November, Italia Smith-Cardinez, the eldest daughter of LL Cool J and his wife Simone, hosted a gender reveal party for Thanksgiving where her family learned that she was having a boy. To celebrate the arrival of their royal prince, the Smith Cardinez family held a Moroccan styled baby shower. While the shower was held in New York, you couldn’t help but to think that it was a celebration in Wakanda.

Event planner Shanell Smith  did an amazing job in planning a Moroccan styled baby shower for newlyweds Italia and Lamar Cardinez. In June of 2017, LL Cool J and his wife Simone Smith gave away their oldest daughter, Italia, in a star-studded wedding at the Sparkling Pointe Vineyards and Winery in Long Island, New York. Just as Italia’s wedding was fit for a princess, her baby shower was fit for a queen as the royalty theme was very present. To honor the couple’s impending arrival, Italia and Lamar sat in gold thrones as they were dressed in Moroccan attire. Traditional clothing for women and men in Morocco consist of long flowing robes with hoods or headscarves and traditional slippers. Not only were Italia and Lamar dressed as kings and queens, their guests dressed in Moroccan attire as well.  A cousin of Italia Smith-Cardinez, who’s Instagram name is luv_lexx, shared photos of the event with the hashtag #TLCBABY2K18


All members of the Smith family were in the house and all wearing smiles as their excitement is contagious. You can tell that they are a close family and that they are eager to meet Prince Cardinez. L Cool J has been married to his wife Simone Smith since 1995 and together, the couple have four children. The legendary rapper and his wife Simone have 3 daughters and 1 son: Son Najee Laurent Todd Eugene Smith and daughters: Italia Anita Maria Smith, Samaria Leah Wisdom Smith, and Nina Simone Smith. Simone Smith looked very regal with her purple hair as she donned purple Moroccan style clothing as well. While it’s evident that Simone loves purple, purple is the color of royalty.




How exciting! LL Cool J has had a memorable year as he turned 50 and pretty soon he’ll be a grandfather for the first time. Check out other photos from the event as other guests at the party shared photos of the luxurious event to their Instagram pages. Congrats Lamar and Italia!
