A week of entertainment news in your in-box.
We find the news you need to know, so you don't have to.

Khaled’s plan was to film the entire event on Snapchat so that his fans could take part in the experience as well, and he did just that. The video started with Tuck’s water breaking, and ended with Khaled holding his son for the first time. The music producer unveiled to Jimmy Kimmel back in June that he and his fiance were expecting, and that he planned to record it all via Snapchat. “The key is that I’m the king and every queen should support the king,” Khaled responded when asked if Tuck was ok with the filming.

The Snapchat personality added that he would of course make sure everything was going well with the birth first. “I’m going to talk to the doctor and if the doctor says everything is going to run smooth, meaning that we want to make sure that the queen is right and my son is right. If it’s running smooth where I can just do my thing, Imma Snapchat the whole thing.”

The business mogul/recording artist even played some of his own music from his album Major Key during the birth.

??????? I love you son !
