Another “healthy, young icon,” has been born, according to a spokeperson for DJ Khaled. The recording artist and his fiancée Nicole Tuck confirmed the arrival of their son early morning Sunday.
Tuck and DJ Khaled delivered their first child, Asahd Tuck Khaled – and proud father Khaled was there to document the event via Snapchat, US Weekly reported Sunday. Asahd Tuck Khaled, whose name means "Lion" in Arabic, is the couple's first child.
“DJ Khaled confirms, DJ Khaled and Nicole Tuck welcome their son, a beautiful, healthy young icon, Asahd Tuck Khaled, born at 2:05 a.m., 7 lbs 14 oz., and 21.5 inches long, on October 23rd, 2016,” the artist’s spokesperson told US Weekly.
The 40-year-old producer sent Snaps Saturday evening prior to delivery, captioning one photo with, “Doctor, it’s go time, right?”
Even after Asahd’s birth, the happy father Sent Snaps and videos of the event. Tuck, 39, seemed to be in good health, as well. The couple, who dated for years prior to becoming engaged, first announced their happy news at the 2016 B.E.T Awards.
Although Tuck has made many appearances on the “Hold You Down” rapper’s Snapchat account and has joined him at red carpet events, DJ Khaled’s fiancée is a relative unknown. According to her LinkedIn profile, Tuck attended Marymount Manhattan College for undergrad and received her masters degree from Fordham University in New York City. Tuck, who is also of Palestinian descent, started a clothing company called ABU Apparel, which carried, “Post-modern streetwear for Independent, fashion-forward individuals,” according to her LinkedIn profile. Fame Bible reported that ABU Apparel was no longer operating. Tuck currently acts as Khaled’s business manager and rep unofficially.
Before the birth of the couple’s son, Khaled had revealed his plans to document his son’s birth on Snapchat. The rapper told Jimmy Kimmel in June that he wished to document the “whole birth,” according to the Mirror.
When asked what Tuck had thought of the idea, Khaled responded, “The key is that I’m the king and every queen should support the king."
He added: “If it’s running smooth where I can just do my thing, I’mma Snapchat the whole thing.”
