DJ Khaled welcomed his first child with his longtime love Nicole Tuck in October — and the Snapchat guruΒ says 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,” Khaled told PEOPLE ahead of the Ford EcoSport launch in Los Angeles on Monday. “This is something that you’re supposed to be grateful for and embrace.”

The 40-year-old welcomed Asahd Tuck on Oct. 23 and, naturally, documented the entire birth process on his favorite app — Snapchat. Now, Khaled says little Asahd is destined for greatness.

“He’s just like me. He has great energy,” the producer tells PEOPLE. “He’s got the glow of a young mogul — the glow of a young icon. He’s amazing.”

He says fatherhood has proved to be the “biggest blessing I’ve ever had in my life.”

“My son is so much joy,” Khaled says. “He brings me so much joy, and it’s a feeling that I can’t explain.”

He even raved about Tuck, calling her “the queen.”

“She birthed my son so all praise to the queen.”

Khaled and Tuck have been together for at least 10 years and Khaled says their relationship is “all about love.”

“I’m blessed to have a relationship that’s amazing,” he tells PEOPLE. “I gave her an engagement ring, but I don’t have a [wedding] date yet. I’m sure one will come.”
