DMX may not be cranking out hit songs, but he’s still cranking out those babies. The rap veteran is the proud father of his 15th child. Yep, you read that correctly.

The former Ruff Ryders rapper welcomed a baby boy on Friday (Aug. 19) with his longtime girlfriend Desiree. According to TMZ, the baby boy is named Exodus Simmons.

Unfortunately, DMX wasn’t there for the actual birth, but he did hop on a plane from Arizona to New York for Exodus’ first night in the world. The 45-year-old doting dad called him a “blessing.”

It goes without saying that DMX will have to get his financial matters in order so he can take care of his children. With the Internal Revenue Service looking into his financial history to see if he paid any taxes, X doesn't need to find himself in prison again.

Thankfully, DMX has worked out legal issues with his ex-wife Tashera Simmons. After a four-year divorce battle, the pair are on good terms now.

You can currently see DMX performing on the Kings and Queens of Hip-Hop tour. To peep his itinerary, head over to
