Love & Hip Hop: Miami returns with season 4 on August 23, and with new additions to the cast. But some of the new faces on the VH1 show aren’t all that new. N.O.R.E is best known as one half of the legendary hip-hop group, Capone-N-Noreaga (C-N-N). Now the Drink Champ is giving us a glimpse into his home life with his wife, Neri Santiago. Noreaga’s wife is the main attraction of L&HH this season. She is a mostly low-key but constant presence supporting her husband. Their reality show stint will give us more insight into their marriage and family, which people are very eager to know about. To get you excited for this #RelationshipGoals couple, we reveal more about who Neri Santiago is right here.

Neri Santiago and N.O.R.E.’s Relationship

N.O.R.E., whose real name is Victor Santiago Jr., has been with Neri at least since 2006. According to Noreaga, the New York-based artist was in Miami on the second anniversary of his father’s death. He was at dinner by himself when he bumped into her.

Neri and Victor Santiago married on September 4, 2011. Before his wedding, the Capone-N-Noreaga artist said he is a “one-woman type of dude.”

A profile on the troubled hip-hop mogul Chris Lighty at the time of his death in 2012, revealed a special moment he had at Neri and Victor’s wedding a year before he died. He had been Noreaga’s manager for a while, and at the wedding, Lighty bent down and adjusted Santiago’s pant bottoms that were tucked into his socks.

The whole Santiago family was endeared by the gesture.

Neri Santiago and N.O.R.E.’s Children

N.O.R.E. and Neri can’t help but gush about their boy. Noah is a straight A student, a basketball player, an actor-in-training, and a young model. He’s featured in many ad campaigns for brands like Old Navy.
