Congratulations are in order (we think) for DMX. He is a father... again... for the 15th time -- just imagine that family Christmas card.
TMZ reports that the "Ruff Ryders" rapper welcomed his 15th child last week in New York. The baby, a boy, weighed 6 lbs, 10 oz.
The celebrity website said that baby's name is Exodus Simmons and it's the first child DMX has had with his longtime girlfriend Desiree.
DMX apparently wasn't there when Desiree gave birth, as he was in Arizona performing a concert. However, he flew back to New York after getting news of the birth.
He told TMZ that he's overjoyed with the addition to his brood, calling the baby a "blessing."
For the sports fans out there, 15 children means he could fill three starting lineups for three basketball teams (that amount of kids is almost equal to the Duggar numbers!).
How DMX affords these children isn't known. In 2013, a federal judge in New York tossed out his bankruptcy filing, making him fair game for creditors.
His biggest debt at the time was $1.3 million he owed in child support. At the time he had fathered 10 children.
Earlier this year, DMX was deemed lucky to be alive after he stopped breathing and had no pulse. He said he suffered from a severe asthma attack, but others wondered if he suffered an overdose.
On Feb. 9, police in Yonkers, New York responded to a call about an unconscious male at a Ramada Inn. DMX was on the ground in the parking lot next to a parked car when police arrived and it was determined he was lifeless, not breathing with no pulse.
Police began life saving procedures and the rapper came back to life and he was taken to a hospital.
At the time, TMZ said a witness told cops that X ingested a powder before falling unconscious. X, though, said he remembered having shortness of breath after suffering from bronchitis for a couple of days. A family member said he asked for an inhaler just before falling unconscious.
