DJ Khaled's son met Nicki Minaj so he's already on his way to being just like his dad
DJ Khaled might have a reputation for Snapchat smarts, but his newborn son Asahd has already found a way to charm on Instagram. The tiny hip hop heir, born in late October, has been blowing up his poppa’s social media feeds of late. Amid a wave of recent celebrity cameos, most noteworthy is DJ Khaled’s son with Nicki Minaj, who looks totally smitten with the sleeping Asahd.
(Although you have to wonder if this isn’t really a job for Mickey Minaj…)
The recent photo flurry isn’t exactly unexpected after Asahd’s dramatic entrance into the world. After months of anticipation – and admiring mama Nicole Tuck’s stylish maternity wear – we finally got our first look at DJ Khaled’s mini me via live Snapchat and Instagram videos of the birth.
Of course, that adorable Instagram might have had a totally different context if Minaj had accepted DJ Khaled’s video marriage proposal – and the $500,000 engagement ring that went with it – back in 2013.
Minaj made clear that the proposal was just a joke, saying, “Nobody in my real life took it seriously…Please let it go. He was kidding. He’s not attracted to me, he doesn’t like me. We’re brother and sister.” At the time, we were left wondering about what could have been…
Luckily for everyone involved, DJ Khaled went on to find true love with fiancee Nicole Tuck, who – despite her regular appearances on DJ Khaled’s Snapchat feed – keeps a relatively low profile. What we do know about Tuck is that she’s an unofficial rep and business manager to DJ Khaled, so it’s no surprise that Asahd seems like he was born with networking skills.
Needless to say, we’re totally jealous of Minaj’s quality cuddling time with Asahd and can’t wait to see who visits him next. Keep up the social media training, pops!
