DJ Khaled was quite the doting dad during his performance at Sunday’s Hot 97 Summer Jam event in East Rutherford, N.J.
As he wrapped up his energy-filled set on stage, Khaled suddenly yelled to the packed audience, “I want to introduce you to my son, Asahd.” The tiny 7-month-old was handed off to Khaled, who proudly lifted his son into the air in a “Lion King”-style moment as the crowd cheered.
Asahd (whose name means “lion” in Arabic) was adorably dressed in a gray onesie and a pint-size pair of white Air Jordan 7 sneakers. He topped off his look with silver Beats headphones to protect his ears from the loud music.
Khaled shared a video of the moment on his Instagram feed. Watch it here:
Khaled also proudly shows off baby Asahd on the cover of his latest studio album, “Grateful,” set to release on June 23. The father-son duo are both dressed in sleek baby-blue suits and sneakers. Asahd looks princely, seated on a miniature throne chair with a lion cub by his side. The double album — for which Asahd has an executive producer credit — will feature a lengthy list of A-list stars including Rihanna, Beyoncé, Jay Z, Alicia Keys and Nicki Minaj.
