DJ Khaled just Snapchatted his son's birth. How would you feel if your partner chose to broadcast your labor on social media?
DJ Khaled is an incredibly proud new father—so proud, in fact, that he chose to share his son's triumphant entrance into the world with all of his fans via a Snapchat broadcast.

Viewers looked on as the couple's doctor updated them on the labor's status, they saw Khaled's nervous reactions to the proceedings, and caught glimpses of Nicole's ready-to-pop belly. Khaled even shared scenes from the final moments of the delivery. The soundtrack to the whole experience? The new father's own music, naturally.
