DJ Khaled is no stranger to publicly showering his son Asahd with affection and gifts, eager to share their father-son bromance with the world.
In a whirlwind 11 months, DJ Khaled has taken baby Asahd from private planes to the VMAs to a spin in his very own tricked-out custom Rolls Royce and his dotage was repaid by the mini mogul in a major way.
Relaxing comfortably in the backyard of his impressive Miami mansion with Asahd on his chest, DJ Khaled released an emotional and heartwarming Instagram video capturing the 11-month-old’s first words.
Captioning the clip, “WHEN I HEAR MY SON FIRST WORDS IT PUT TEARS IN MY EYES … MY SON @asahdkhaled I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!” there’s no question that Asahd’s powerful choice was not lost on the hip hop mogul.
While parenting milestones like a child’s first steps or first word are often the rewards that offset sleepless nights, countless diaper changes and temper tantrums, DJ Khaled revealed to People magazine shortly after Asahd’s birth that he couldn’t be happier to be a father.
“There’s nothing hard about it. Every moment I get a chance to be with my son is such an amazing moment,” he said. “This is something that you’re supposed to be grateful for and embrace.”
