Nipsey Hussle's death in March means this will be the first year the dedicated patriarch will not be around for Father's Day. On Sunday (June 16), Lauren London, the mother of the late rapper's youngest child, shared a heartfelt Instagram post dedicated to the beloved rapper on the special day.

Father's Day has no doubt been a difficult time for the actress and model. Hopping on Instagram, she posted a photo of the couple and their son Kross.

"One of the reasons I fell in Love with You...Your fatherhood," London wrote in the caption. "Today we celebrate You. Love you Ermias 💙."

Lauren and Nipsey started dating back in 2013 and welcomed their son into the world in August 2016. Nipsey also has a daughter named Emani from a previous relationship. Following Nipsey's death, London was devastated. She broke her silence a couple days later on Instagram posting, "I am completely lost I’ve lost my best friend My sanctuary. My protector My soul....I’m lost without you We are lost without you babe I have no words."

A couple weeks later, she eulogized Nipsey at his homegoing service in Los Angeles. “You made more into a woman and you have given me an opportunity to love a man,” she read in part, adding, “I learn so much about myself with you. You have been my turn up and my church.”
