NICOLE TUCK HAS PALESTINE ROOTS

Nicole Tuck was born on December 7, 1975, in New Rochelle, New York, where she spent her childhood. She grew up with her parents, Elwood Tuck and Pauline Vitale, from whom she inherited her Palestinian and American-Africa origin.

Tuck had two siblings and grew up in an affluent family that supported her every step. According to her Linkedin Page, she attended Marymount Manhattan College, graduating with a bachelor of fine art degree in 2003.

The businesswoman went on to obtain a master's degree from Fordham University in 2005. Despite her non-scandalous childhood and seemingly hitch-free educational journey, Tuck's life was not entirely devoid of tragedy.

In 2018, she lost her brother Johnathan Tuck, who was fatally shot while trying to purchase marijuana. Johnathan's killer, Richard Jimenez, was arrested and sentenced to 20 years. Neither Tuck nor her parents attended the sentencing.

Her parents opted to sit it out because the experience was too painful for them, while Khaled's wife refrained from attending since she was 8 months pregnant.

NICOLE TUCK IS A BUSINESSWOMAN AND DJ KHALED'S MANAGER

DJ Khaled's wife has excelled in business, having ventured into entrepreneurship following graduation. She founded the clothing line called ABU Apparel, which her dad inspired.

On her LinkedIn profile, the CEO explained the origin of her clothing line and business name, saying she picked up the name after realizing "ABU meant 'father in fabric.'" To her, it was a reference to her dad, who always had a strong work ethic, a fantastic drive and a great fashion sense.

Despite being married to a famous singer, Tuck strives to stay away from her husband's fame, only making occasional appearances as his plus one on red carpets. However, she remains committed to the business side of Khaled's career.

Notably, Tuck has served as her husband's unofficial music manager for almost as long as they've known each other. Her impressive educational expertise has helped her run his music empire seamlessly.

NICOLE TUCK IS DJ KHALED'S WIFE AND QUEEN

DJ Khaled and Nicole Tuck have weathered many storms throughout their relationship of over a decade. However, despite their relationship lasting for so long, the duo only got engaged following the birth of their first son, Asahd Khaled.

Reports show he and Tuck tied the knot in a secret ceremony soon after. However, details about the said marriage remain scarce. They have since enjoyed marital bliss as a beautiful family of four.

Notably, Tuck and Khaled came close to never making it down the aisle. Nonetheless, during the rapper's appearance on MTV in 2013, he famously proposed to singer Nicki Minaj on live TV.

The proposal raised dust at the time because Khaled seemed to ditch his longtime partner by proposing to Minaj openly. However, it turned out it was all a prank, as the star later clarified in a statement backed by the songstress.

True to his words, Khaled has remained devoted to his wife for years, with their relationship rarely encountering scandals. In fact, the music mogul has openly declared his love for Tuck, even referring to her as his queen. He once wrote on Instagram:

"Happy mother's Day to the biggest boss in the game, my queen and the mother of our biggest blessing!"

The happy couple, who are in their forties, have not ruled out the possibility of having a third child. However, they had no intention of forcing the process, opting instead to prioritize Tuck's wellbeing.

Khaled appreciates his wife's sacrifice as a mother and constantly praises her for it. To him, all mothers and wives were beautiful and special queens. This has informed his ever-increasing love for the mother of his kids. The star once divulged:

"And when I look at her, I just fall in love. The exciting thing about our relationship is that it's never a dull moment. She keeps me grounded too, and when we're on the same wavelength, it's fireworks."

As a mom, Tuck tries to balance it all, making her kids lead a normal life amid their childhood fame as celebrity kids, her career and their personal lives. She's so great at being the ideal mom that Khaled designed a special accolade just for her. He revealed:

"I [recently] got some flowers and made her an award, 'Mother Award of the Century." You sit back and realize, they do a lot. You got to wake up six, seven, in the morning to take Asahd to camp or school. I did it for like three days and she does it every day. So when you see those things, you appreciate it on another level because it's a non-stop job when you have kid and everybody plays their part in a certain way."
