Everybody knows about the “Father of Ashad.” It is not only DJ Khaled’s third album but is also how the refers to himself. But today, we take a look at the Mother of Ashad, Nicole Tuck. The American born businesswoman is known for her marriage to DJ Khaled. Back in the day, Nicole owned the clothing line called ABU Apparel. Even though Nicole had to pull out of business, she didn’t remain unemployed for long. She currently works alongside her husband DJ Khaled and helps to handle the business side of things.
Nicole Tuck was born on the 7th of December 1975 in New Rochelle suburb of New York City as the oldest child of Pauline Vitale and Elwood Tuck. Born and raised in the United States, Nicole shares a mixed descent of Palestinian, American, and African. Nicole pursued her undergrads in the Marymount Manhattan College in 2003 before going to Fordham University in 2005. Even though there exists very little information about Tuck’s early life, we know that she has a brother, Jonathan Tuck. Tuck holds a bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts and a master’s degree in Education.
Born into a family of businessmen and entrepreneurs, Nicole always wanted to follow in her parent’s footsteps. She began her project with ABU Aparalles. The clothing line primarily focused on funky clothing and soon found a growing customer base. This helped the company bring in a famous face as its endorser who was no other than DJ Khaled. Even though the company enjoyed massive success, it’s profit was short-lived. Things started to get messy and Nicole put an end to ABU Aparalles. But Nicole wasn’t unemployed for long. DJ Khaled asked her to manage a project for him which led to a role as a business manager for her husband. They form a perfect pair both in business and in life.
Marriage to DJ Khaled:
Nicole and DJ Khaled go way back. The pair met at a time when DJ Khaled was still trying to leave his mark in the music industry. The pair recently celebrated 11 years of relationship and we are sure they will be together for the next 11 as well. After Nicole got pregnant in 2016, the pair decided to get married. The ceremony was private and was exclusive to close friends and family.
In October of 2016, Nicole gave birth to a baby boy. The pair named the boy Ashad and DJ Khaled was smitten with his son. The family can be often seen in red carpets together. Both Khaled and Nicole often take to social media sites to share pictures of their son. The pair announced on 12 September 2019 that they were expecting another son. The pair shared the happy news on social media and Khaled wrote a long post thanking god. Their second baby boy Aalam Khaled was born in 2020.
Through every bump on the way:
For all the years of a happy relationship between Nicole and DJ Khaled, there have been a couple of speed bumps on the way. DJ Khaled infamously proposed to Nicki Minaj in 2013 during the release of “I Wanna Be With You”. It was later revealed that this was a joke between the pair and they share a loving brother-sister relationship.
