DJ Khaled recently welcomed his first child with fiancée Nicole Tuck, and like all new dads, he's not getting a whole lot of sleep. But Khaled says it doesn't bother him at all.

The 41-year-old music producer recently sat down for a Facebook Live interview with People where he dished on raising his 7-week-old son, Ashad, who's been keeping him up all night.

"I definitely don’t sleep," Khaled shared. "He wakes up every two to three hours and he doesn’t even like being in [his crib]. He needs to sleep on Daddy or Mommy, like on the belly. He's been going to sleep with us, and I love it."

"But it's like, I'm not tired though," Khaled added. "That's how powerful the love is. I don’t have a tired bone in my body."

The DJ and his fiancée welcomed their bundle of joy on Oct. 23, and Khaled captured the entire birthing process on Snapchat in a series of intimate, semi-graphic videos set to his own music.
