Diplo has confirmed that he welcomed his first child with former Miss Universe pageant contestant Jevon King.

The 30-year-old model had shared on social media back in October 2019 that she was expecting her first child along with a photo of her growing baby bump.

"Something about feeling you growing inside me makes me feel so complete. I love you so much already. I can't wait to hold you , smell you and be loved by you unconditionally," she shared on Instagram at the time. "Usually I turn up for my birthday but this year is a different kind of turn up, we celebrate you!"

On March 20, 2020, King announced the arrival of her baby boy Pace on social media. "So in love," she wrote in another picture.
