DJ Khaled is a dad!
The DJ and longtime fiancée Nicole Tuck welcomed their first child, son Asahd Tuck Khaled, at 2:05 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 23, his rep confirms to PEOPLE. Asahd, which means “lion” in Arabic, weighed in at 7 lbs., 14 oz. and measured 21.5 inches long.
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.
After his son’s birth, Khaled cried tears of joy and celebrated with his family (his mother came to the hospital) and friends.

“My son’s going to be a young icon,” he said.
