DJ Khaled Says He's 'Living Proof That Dreams Come True' as He's Joined by Family at 2023 Grammys

He's up for six Grammys at the 64th annual awards ceremony

DJ Khaled is a leading Grammy nominee in 2023, but first and foremost he's a proud dad and husband!

The "I'm The One" singer, 47, presented his family — wife Nicole Tuck and sons Asahd, 6, and Aalam, 3 — on the 2023 Grammys red carpet, all dressed in coordinated outfits and leaving no doubt that they're a tight unit.

"Having kids is the truest form of love," Khaled told PEOPLE. "There's no words that could explain."

"They love to get dressed up!" Tuck noted of her sons.

For Khaled, becoming a father was everything he had hoped for and more.

"God blessed me with two beautiful boys, an amazing queen and mother, and blessed me to be a great father," he told PEOPLE in April 2021. "This is the best feeling I ever felt in my life because it's pure. There's really no words you can describe the feeling unless you're a mother or father. It's just the truth. It's a feeling that they haven't even made a word for yet, and it's unbelievable."

He continued, "It is so beautiful when you can teach a kid to be great because they're born great. And [when] you give them the right knowledge and the right love, it's unbelievable. Genius levels at its highest."

"I cry every day, man. I cry happiness just seeing my kids. It's all about them."
