He told the little tot he would show him the front and back of the album cover. After showing Asahd both sides of the cover, the latter said he liked both.
Khaled asked his son if he approved of the cover, and he replied in the affirmative. The father-son duo exchanged kisses before the clip ended. Khaled captioned the video:
"KHALED KHALED COVER IS APPROVED! ???? 98.5 % DONE [...]ASAHD AND AALAM EXECUTIVE PRODUCERS !"
Khaled's post is coming two weeks after he shared a picture of himself and Asahd sitting on a white couch enjoying a moment. The record producer boasted about his upcoming album in the post's caption, stating every song on it is a hit.
Khaled and his wife are protective and cautious about the things the boys watch on TV.
He also shared a picture showing his hand, his wife, Nicole Tuck's hand, and Asahd's hand. The trio all wore gold wristwatches and joined them together to make for a beautiful photograph which Khaled captioned, "Family ting ,FAMILY TIME ! THE KHALED'S."
Khaled is a proud father to his son, Asahd, and has previously spoken about how he enjoys raising him. The "I'm On One" crooner recently spoke to People about parenting Asahd.
During the chat, he said God blessed him with Asahd, his younger brother, Aalam, 1, and their mother, Tuck, adding that God also blessed him to be a great father.
The DJ gushed about watching Asahd grow and having real big, grown, and intelligent conversations with him, adding that it is beautiful when one can teach a kid to be great because they are born great.
The 45-year-old is indeed teaching his kids great things. "Khaled Khaled" will be the second album of his that Asahd is executive producing after his 2019 album, "Father of Asahd."
Besides executive producing his father's albums, Asahd also says words the latter says. In 2019, Khaled told People about how he bugged out when the then-two-year-old Asahd said his famous phrase, "We The Best," adding that it was a beautiful feeling.
Though his sons are growing so fast and learning to say new words, Khaled and his wife are protective and cautious about the things the boys watch on TV.
He revealed that it is mandatory for the family to listen to the clean versions of everything, including hip-hop so that his sons do not pick up on the profane language.
