Hip-hop star Snoop Dogg was so shocked when he saw his wife giving birth to their first son CORDE, he fainted.

The GIN AND JUICE rapper, now a father of three, admits that when he arrived at the hospital to witness the arrival of his first offspring nine years ago, it was a lot more brutal then he'd anticipated.

He says, "I had never seen nothing like that before. It's different being there, (than) just to see it on TV. Then to actually be there, it just took me by storm. I couldn't breathe. I went to the bathroom and passed out!"

Snoop, real name CALVIN BROADUS, says he remained on the bathroom floor for five minutes until he was found and revived. But he promises he'll never be in such a bad state again at another child birth.

He adds, "Now I'm a professional - it's nothing!"
