It appears congratulations is in order for DMX, because the rap veteran has welcomed his 15th child.

According to TMZ, the 45-year-old rapper had a baby boy on Friday (Aug. 19) named Exodus Simmons, who weighed 6 lbs. and 10 oz.

The mother is DMX’s longtime girlfriend Desiree. This is their first child together.

He was not present for the baby’s birth, but he reportedly flew from Arizona to New York for Exodus’ first night, calling his 15th child a “blessing.”

DMX is currently working on new music with Swizz Beatz and dropped a pair of songs, “Blood Red” and the Styles P-assisted “Still Scratching,” in June.
