Find out what the couple named their first born.
This story was originally published on PEOPLE.
DJ Khaled is a dad!
The DJ became a dad for the first time in the early hours of Sunday, Oct. 23. His longtime fiancée Nicole Tuck gave birth to a boy.
Naturally, the rapper and social media star documented the entire birth process on his favorite app — Snapchat. Khaled posted dozens of Snaps over the weekend, showing the moment Tuck’s water first broke on Saturday to her hours-long labor. He also showed the first moments of the newborn’s life, although he only let fans hear the baby’s cries rather than show him.
Khaled’s rep confirmed to PEOPLE that the baby’s name is Asahd Tuck and he clocked in at 7 lbs. 14 oz., and 21.5 inches long. “Asahd” means lion in Arabic.
After his son’s birth, Khaled cried tears of joys and celebrated with his family (his mother came to the hospital) and friends.
The couple announced their pregnancy exclusively to PEOPLE in May.
“I’ve always wanted kids,” he said. “This is my first kid and I’m excited and I want more. I’ve always wanted to be a family man. I’m in a great family and I want to have my own family at the same time.”
And his new son will inevitably have some “special cloth alerts,” courtesy of his Snapchat star father, who said he is eager to spoil the little guy.
“I want to spoil our kids and give them everything,” he said in May. “There’s no limit to the spoiling that I’m going to do. I’m going to spoil them to the minute they in my hands. I’m going all out.”

The DJ is also looking forward to his son becoming his very own mini-me.
“My son’s going to be a young icon,” he said.
And the baby already has some new cloth! Wendy Williams took Khaled’s comments to a new level when she gifted the rapper a “Young Icon” onesie during their interview on The Wendy Williams Show in October.
“Thank you @wendyshow for this amazing gift for my son thank u so much !!!” he wrote in an Instagram post.
