UPDATE: DJ Khaled's rep confirmed the baby's arrival to E! News and also shared the name of the music producer's bundle of joy.

"DJ Khaled and Nicole Tuck welcomed their son, a beautiful, healthy young icon, Asahd Tuck Khaled, born at 2:05am, 7 lbs 14 oz, and 21.5 inches long, on October 23rd, 2016," his rep shared. "The meaning of Asahd is Lion in Arabic."


DJ Khaled is officially a dad! 

The music producer and Snapchat devotee welcomed his first child, a baby boy, with fiancée Nicole Tuck Sunday morning, and every one of his estimated six million followers could snag a front row seat to the entire experience.

Khaled shared the now-family of three's entire birthing process on the social media app (because, duh!), from the time Tuck's water broke to conversations with the doctor about her progress, ultimately leading up to the first moment he held his son. Khaled even played some of his own hit tracks, including Jay-Z collaboration "I Got the Keys," right as Tuck was giving birth to their bundle of joy.

Talk about a major key alert!

Fans knew Khaled's big unveil was coming, as the 40-year-old told Jimmy Kimmel back in June he was preparing to broadcast his baby's birth via Snapchat.

When asked if his longtime lady love was on board with the decision, Khaled told the late night host, "The key is that I'm the king and every queen should support the king."

He continued, "I'm going to talk to the doctor and if the doctor says everything is going to run smooth, meaning that we want to make sure that the queen is right and my son is right. If it's running smooth where I can just do my thing, Imma Snapchat the whole thing."

And that he did. Congratulations to the happy and healthy family!
