Congratulations to DJ Khaled and his fiancée Nicole Tuck, who have welcomed their first child.
The DJ’s social media posts on Thanksgiving Day were all about expressing gratitude for his newborn son, Asahd Tuck Khaled. And there were a lot of them: photos and videos captioned with emotional messages about why he has so much to be thankful for this year.
The new dad also paid credit to Tuck, writing, “To my queen thank you for birthing my biggest blessing! I love you!”

In the videos, Khaled covers his baby in kisses and tells him, “I love you so much,” throwing in plenty of his “Another one” catchphrase for good measure.
Khaled and Tuck welcomed Asahd — an Arabic baby boy name meaning “lion” — on Oct. 23, and the whole thing was shared on the DJ’s Snapchat from the moment Tuck’s water broke to the newborn’s very first cries.
Asahd has had an early introduction to the world of celebrity, meeting several of his dad’s famous friends and musical collaborators, including Nicki Minaj, who features on Khaled’s Instagram with the baby in her arms. Fellow “Do You Mind” collaborators Future, Rick Ross and August Alsina also visited the newborn.
So far, the first-time father is taking parenthood in stride. “There’s nothing hard about it. Every moment I get a chance to be with my son is such an amazing moment,” he said earlier this month. “This is something that you’re supposed to be grateful for and embrace.”
