Khaled then posted a video of his son swaddled up in blankets, as he peppered his boy with kisses.
‘I love you so much! I love you so much! I love you so much!’, the rapper happily proclaimed with each kiss.
Khaled also shared a video of Asahd at just one day old.
In a final video, Khaled gave his son kisses on his head as he rubbed his back.
‘Happy Thanksgiving boy, I love you,’ he told his son.
Little Asahd is already proving to be a star in the making – his dad posted a photo of him being cradled by none other than Nicki Minaj.
‘ICONS HANG WIT ICONS ! ICON ALERT!’, he captioned the snap.
In October, Khaled shared with his fans moments from his son’s birth on Snapchat and Instagram.
The rapper let fans witness everything from Nicole’s contractions to her intimate examinations.
The updates, which combined came to eight minutes in length, shared the most intimate moments, including the mother-to-be with her legs spread while the doctor inspected the birth canal.
In the video Khaled revealed how nervous he was in anticipation. While listening to soothing music the dad-to-be rocked anxiously back and forth.
But he wasn’t alone. Khaled’s mother and other family members, along with friends, joined him and Nicole at the hospital.
As he stood back and recorded, doctors instructed Nicole to breath while counting the seconds between contractions as family and friends held her hands and encouraged her.
The DJ continued filming from the sidelines and told the doctors not to worry about the camera and to just do their job.
An unknown amount of time later and seven minutes into his Snapchat feed, Khaled finally exclaimed through his laughter, ‘Baby’s here!’
And although he didn’t show his son right away he said, ‘I’m gonna let you hear it’ referring to his newborn son’s crying.
The new dad joined in with his baby boy and cried ‘tears of joy.’
Following the birth, Khaled explained during an interview with Rolling Stone why he kept images to a minimum of his son and fiance during the labour.
‘He’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. I want to get with my queen and put him in his nice Air Jordans and be properly dressed before I send a picture out to the world. I can’t wait for you to see him – to show you an icon.
‘Right now, I’m on tour, and he’s in a secret location – an iconic secret location. He’s real cool. He’s a young don.’
