(RADIO.COM) – Over the last few years, DJ Khaled has made his music inseparable from his social media presence, his life inseparable from his music, and his Snapchat inseparable from his life. That’s a tangled web of snaps, collaborations, opulent vacations, studio sessions and personal milestones. Never has the life-art-media axis seemed more obvious than when Khaled Snapchatted the birth of his child, with his own music blasting in the delivery room. “God is great, man!”
Khaled kept respectful distance from his fiancee’s delivery team throughout the labor, but his own nervousness and vulnerability were on display. After their son’s birth, the DJ and his fiancee Nicole provided this statement to Us Weekly:
“DJ Khaled confirms, DJ Khaled and Nicole Tuck welcome their son, a beautiful, healthy young icon, Asahd Tuck Khaled, born at 2:05 a.m., 7 lbs 14 oz., and 21.5 inches long, on October 23rd, 2016,” his rep tells Us Weekly exclusively. “The meaning of Asahd is Lion in Arabic.”
