Hey, Alam! DJ Khaled reveals son’s name at Grammys

DJ Khaled’s newborn son is called Alam.

The Wild Thoughts hitmaker welcomed a baby boy into the world with wife Nicole Tuck earlier this month, and when collecting the Best Rap/Sung Performance gong at the 2020 Grammy Awards, he revealed the little one’s name.

“I just had a new baby boy a week ago. His name is Alam. It means ‘the world’ in Arabic.”

When collecting the prize for their track Higher alongside collaborator John Legend, DJ Khaled told the crowd: “First of all, God is the greatest, thank you God … I want to thank my beautiful queen Nicole. I just had a new baby boy a week ago. His name is Alam. It means ‘the world’ in Arabic. And I also want to big up my other son, Asahd. I love you so much. Daddy’ll be home [soon].”

DJ Khaled also paid tribute to their collaborator Nipsey Hussle, who tragically died after being shot in March 2019 outside his Los Angeles clothing store.

He shared: “This is for Nipsey Hussle. This is for hip hop.”
