The rapper's first child, Destiny, posted a picture of him and her on Father's Day. The young lady who shares a close bond with her dad captioned the Instagram post:

"Happy Father's Day Dad!!! Love you!!!"

In the post, Destiny was pictured in a red off-shoulder gown with her black hair tied in a flowing knot as she laughed with her dad alongside another female at a restaurant.

Nas, who had a deep blue long sleeve T-shirt on, was standing beside his daughter, making it clear that they were having a beautiful moment. Destiny loves sharing her pictures with her over 144,000 Instagram fans, and she recently shared a picture of her beautiful body.


The 27-year-old aspiring actress and entrepreneur featured in a documentary about her father in 2014. Destiny has a lipstick line which she named Lipmatic and launched in 2017.

In an interview with Essence, the entrepreneur revealed that wearing lip gloss had always been her thing. She also praised her mother – Carmen Jones, and her father for influencing her greatly.



Knight, who Nas had with his ex-wife Kelis Rogers, is his second child and only son. Kelis gave birth to Knight on July 21, 2009, and she has always publicly shown her love for her son.

Although Nas and Kelis do not show their son's face, they constantly share his pictures on social media. On their son's birthday in 2018, Kelis posted a picture of herself and Knight enjoying some fun time together.


In the Instagram picture, the visibly happy mother stood behind her son with her blue-colored hair and sunglasses while Knight, who wore an orange T-shirt, stood in front of his birthday cake.

In a recent picture she posted on her Instagram page, Kelis was seen enjoying some fun time with her son as they played in the snow.


She wore a white and black patterned jacket which was zipped up, and multicolored headgear while she had her Beats By Dre wireless headphones on.

Knight, who wore a blue jacket, had his helmet on with his face covered up to his nose as he snuggled tightly to his mom. Although both parents love their child, Nas and Kelis once had legal issues over child custody after Kelis filed for divorce.

The pair eventually settled on a new custody arrangement which they both agreed to. Nas's private life has shown that he is a songwriter and rapper and a proud father of two kids.
