Michael Loccisano/WireImageSurprise! Diplo is a father for the third time. 

The DJ, who already has two sons with ex Kathryn Lockhart, confirmed the news that he had another son with former Miss Universe contestant Jevon King in a social media post on Monday. 

“So I had an entire a** baby during quarantine,” he admitted. “I was hesitant to post him because not only does he already [have] a better haircut than me. But also because I haven’t met him yet since we are separated by a million miles and closed borders.”

Diplo, whose full name is Thomas Wesley Pentz, added, “His name is Pace, he and his mommy are super healthy and happy and I’m going to meet them as soon as we turn a corner on this world shutdown.”

The 41-year-old first introduced the world to his son in a Mother’s Day tribute posted on Sunday which featured a slideshow containing three photos: one of himself as a child with his mother, one with his ex and their two sons — 5-year-old Lazer and 9-year-old Lockett — and the final of Pace and King.  

“Thanks for giving me life and helping me create it – the three strongest mothers in the world,” Diplo wrote. “I’m still a work in progress but u have given three perfect beautiful boys.  I love you all til the moon and back.”
