The two started dating in the 90’s when Nicole was still practicing law. At that point in time, Nicole was married to Sedale Threatt and had an affair with Dr. Dre. The two made it official in 1996 and so Nicole had to break away from the NBA star.

Nicole has given birth to two children. The son is named Truth Young and the daughter is named Truly Young. Truth Young was born one year after the marriage and the daughter was born in 2001. A long gap one would say, but both the parties decided it was best if Nicole would rest and focus on one child at a time. Nobody knows if the two have plans to conceive one more child.

Dr. Dre at the time of their marriage, was in a relationship with multiple woman. So it’s quite surprising how the two ended up so close to each other that they would marry. Dr. Dre also came along with his two other children from his previous marriage named Curtis Young who was conceived when Dr. Dre was still a teenager himself. In 1983, Dr. Dre and Lisa Johnson had a daughter who they named La Tanya Young. Other than that, he has two other sons who are Andre Young Jr. and Marcel Young so that makes quite a lot of kids.

However, Nicole accepted this side of him and this is why Dr. Dre has stayed true to her ever since they have been married. The kind of story the two share almost makes you want to believe love is a real thing.
