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.”— DJ Khaled
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.”
