DMX welcomed his 15th child into the world last Friday (Aug. 16) with his girlfriend Desiree Lindstrom.
The baby boy’s name is Exodus Simmons and he weighed six pounds, 10 ounces.
The veteran rapper’s substantial family tree has caused him some issues in the past.
In June 2015, DMX was arrested for unpaid child support.
Just a few months after being released from that arrest, X was picked up yet again on charges of unpaid child support.
His ex-wife and mother of four of his children, Tashera Simmons, accused DMX of missing his $10,000 a month child support payments following his prison release.
At one point, reports said he owed about $400,000 in unpaid funds.
DMX ended up blaming it all on his former manager, who was fired late last year.
X claimed the payments should have been handled by the business manager, and he assumed Tashera was getting the payments as usual until he got arrested.
2016 got off to a rough start as well, but it was because of his health.
DMX was found unconscious and rushed to a hospital in February.
Luckily things have gotten better for Dark Man X as he started to do notable interviews, appeared at one of the Bad Boy reunion shows, and teamed up with his old Ruff Ryders associate, Styles P for a new song called “Still Scratching.”
With the birth of his baby boy, this appears to cap off a much better year for the Yonkers rapper.
According to TMZ, the “X Gon’ Give It to Ya” rapper was in Arizona when Lindstrom went into labor and ended up missing the delivery, however he flew to New York immediately afterward to spend time with his new son on his first day of life.
DMX shares children with nine women, including his ex-wife, Tashera Simmons, with whom he has four kids, as well as ex-girlfriend Yadira Borrego, with whom he shares two children.
The rapper filed for bankruptcy in 2013, citing an inability to pay his child support obligations, and was sentenced to six months in jail in July 2015 for unpaid child support, however he was later released in September of that year.
