Aalam Khaled is the son of DJ Khaled, the DJ, record executive, author and producer. The I’m The One singer Khaled had his second son, Aalam, with his longtime partner and wife, Nicole Tuck, in early 2020.
Aalam also has an older brother, Asahd, and together the brothers are possibly some of the happiest kids around. You can definitely say that Khaled can’t seem to get enough of basking in fatherhood from Aalam and his brother, Asahd Tuck Khaled. Not only does Aalam have a loving mother and father, but as it happens, he is also a celebrity in his own right.
And it’s all thanks to his musician dad who has kept him close to cameras since birth. The no brains singer has seemingly tried to make his sons junior hip-hop moguls. Not even in his toddler years and Aalam Tuck Khaled already has tens of thousands of followers on Instagram. Check out tips that have made Aalam no less than a big name in their own right.
DJ Khaled Announced News of Aalam Khaled’s Birth at the 2020 Grammy
Aalam Khaled was born on January 20, 2020 in the United States. His father Khaled kept the name of his second son, Aalam, a secret for a while. He first revealed it publicly during his acceptance speech after winning best rap/sing performance at the 2020 Grammys in January.
During the ceremony, Khaled said:
“I want to thank my beautiful Queen Nicole [Tuck]† I just had a new son a week ago. It (Aalam) means ‘the world’ in Arabic.”
Khaled at the Grammys also said the reason he went by the name Aalam was because the Holy Quran used the nickname on several occasions.
The Billboard chart topper also dedicated his award to the late Double singer Nipsey Hussle and hip hop.
While the Spies in disguise actor streamed the birth of his first son’s life on Snapchat, he didn’t bother to do so on his second, Aalam.
Khaled later nevertheless shared a series of photos of the process with his fans on Instagram, including the doctor who performed Aalam’s delivery. The now 46-year-old rapper shared the photo of his son Aalam on Instagram for the first time on January 29, 2020.
Khaled revealed at the time that his second son arrived at 11:42 am. Now two-year-old Aalam, the youngest child of the Platinum-certified singer, DJ Khaled, and his wife, was born on January 20, 2020.
At birth, Aalam reportedly weighed 8 pounds, 4 ounces. Alongside the first public photo of Aalam, where his eldest son, Asahd sits next to his younger brother, wrapped in blankets, the record producer wrote:
“Brothers! Asahd! And alam! January 20, 2020. Time 11:42 PM. AALAM 8 ponds [sic] 4 ounces. WE THE BEST! MORE LOVE, MORE BLESSINGS!”
Khaled had first announced the news of Aalam’s arrival in mid-September with a video showing his wife Nicole’s ultrasound appointment.
When announcing the news, he also addressed his first son and how he would get a brother. On Aalam’s first birthday, Khaled shared a video on Instagram with the moments during the birth of his second child.
The footage clearly showed how nervous Asahd’s father, Khaled, really was. Although Nicole gave birth to Aalam once, the hip-hop artist couldn’t contain his excitement.
Aalam Khaled Ancestors back to Palestine
Aalam’s paternal grandparents were from Palestine. They reportedly sold clothes at a flea market in New Orleans, Louisiana. Later they had a store in Orlando.
In fact, Aalam’s now world famous artist father worked in his parents’ shop; he marked pants, pulled the suits off the racks, stuck price tags and more.
Aalam has an older brother; He can have more brothers and sisters
As mentioned, Aalam has a brother, Asahd who is two years older than him. In addition, the boys’ father has said time and again that they are very likely to have more siblings.
Khaled has often stated that he enjoys fatherhood and during an October 2020 interview with e! Daily Pophe also said to look forward to a third child.
The record executive revealed how he specifically wanted to add a daughter. Even in another interview, Khaled confessed that he’s always so ready to have more kids and it’s apparently something he’s talked about for most of his adult life.
For now, however, Aalam and Asahd are seemingly the world of the Grammy winners.
Aalam Khaled has his own Instagram with just under 200,000 followers
Like his older brother, Aalam is also on Instagram with his own handle. Aalam and his brother, Asahd’s moblogs mostly feature their domestic scenes of Florida life back home.
The Instagram handles also often feature their parents, Louisiana-born rapper Khaled and his wife Nicole. Aalam reached almost 90,000 followers after just three months.
DJ Khaled trademarked his son, Aalam Khaled’s name
in January 2020, TMZ reported the Greece singer DJ Khaled and his wife filed an application to trademark the then-newborn new name Aalam Tuck Khaled through ATK Entertainment, a Florida-based company.
Khaled and his wife started the trademark process just two days after the birth of their second son. The couple did the same for their eldest son and Aalam’s older brother. The trademark apparently allows the Khaled couple to use their children’s name on fragrances, cosmetics, skin creams, baby products, sporting goods, CDs, jewelry, children’s books, tote bags, clothing, watches and DVDs, among others.
Aalam also produced one of his father’s songs
Khaled, just two months old and Aalam’s father, announced that his son would be helping produce the follow-up to his 2019 album, father of Asahd, the songbook named after the first son of the Arab attack.
Khaled announced the news on his Instagram in March 2020. The then Novacanne reported that The sequel of Father Of Asahd would name Aalam as executive producer.
Is Aalam Khaled already a rich kid; What is his net worth?
While Aalam’s father, DJ Khaled is colorfully wealthy with a net worth of more than $75 million, his sons, though far too young, are also well on their way to becoming millionaires and beyond. This is evident in their ongoing lifestyle and their status in the entertainment field. In fact, Aalam’s brother supposedly already has a net worth in the neighborhood of hundreds of thousands of dollars.
However, since Aalam is only a few years older, it may be a while, albeit quickly (for his age) before the two-year-old kicks in and starts collecting ridiculous sums of money.
