Khaled captioned the video, “God is the greatest.” He added, “All I ever wanted to do was inspire the world to be great and to leave a legacy. Almost 3 years ago when I found out my queen was expecting our son Asahd I knew my life would change forever and that OUR legacy would soon be on the way. After that blessing, I released some of my biggest albums to date (Grateful and Father Of Asahd) inspired by his greatness.”

As we go into this journey I’m taking FANLUV along with me to keep the love and blessings flowing to the world! #FAMILY.”
