And in newly posted videos, the proud dad showers his baby boy with tons of kisses and repeatedly coos “I love you so much” using his ever-popular “Another one” catchphrase.

The DJ and Tuck welcomed their first child on Oct. 23. Asahd, which means “lion” in Arabic, weighed in at 7 lbs., 14 oz. and measured 21.5 inches long. Naturally, the social media star documented the entire birth process on his favorite app, Snapchat, from the moment Tuck’s water broke to letting fans hear Asahd’s first cries.

One month into being a father, Khaled is finding parenthood easy so far. “There’s nothing hard about it. Every moment I get a chance to be with my son is such an amazing moment,” he told PEOPLE this month. “This is something that you’re supposed to be grateful for and embrace.”

Little Asahd is already meeting his father’s famous friends, including Nicki Minaj. Also on Thursday, Khaled shared a photo of his son being held by Minaj along with the caption, “Icons hang with icons! ICON ALERT!” Other “Do You Mind” collaborators that visited Khaled and Asahd were Future, Rick Ross and August Alsina.
