Is there anything baby Asahd can’t do?

DJ Khaled‘s son has taken the world by storm, stealing the spotlight at award shows, amassing a large social media following and rubbing elbows with some of music’s biggest stars. Most recently, he’s helped his father overcome one of his biggest fears: flying.

“I haven’t flown in 10 years. In 10 years!” the 41-year-old producer said in a recent Instagram of himself on a jet with the 10-month-old perched on his lap. “That’s the only thing I had was fear of flying. Asahd made me overcome my fear of flying.”

He then turned to the little boy and said, “I love you.”

About a month after welcoming the little boy, Khaled told PEOPLE that fatherhood suits him well.

“There’s nothing hard about it. Every moment I get a chance to be with my son is such an amazing moment,” he said. “This is something that you’re supposed to be grateful for and embrace.”
