He's got his own Daddy Daycare going.

DMX is known for his wild antics, but what we didn’t know is that he’s wild in the bed, too. Or at least that’s what it seems like. The rapper, whose real name is Earl Simmons, just welcomed his 15th baby into the world. Yes, 15th! He and his longtime girlfriend, Desiree, gave birth to their baby boy this past Friday in NYC. This is her first child.

Desiree’s pregnancy was announced in May, just months after the rapper knocked on death’s door. In February, X was rushed to the hospital—he wasn’t breathing and had no pulse. All signs pointed to a drug overdose, but the rapper shut those claims down, saying he hadn’t got to his inhaler during an asthma attack. Well, maybe it was his 15th kid on the way that stopped him breathing.
