Who is Jevon King? Diplo Reveals He Has Baby Son With Model in Mother's Day Instagram Post

DJ Diplo has confirmed he is the father of a baby boy with model Jevon King in a heartfelt Instagram post to mark Mother's Day Sunday.

The DJ and record producer, whose real name is Thomas Wesley Pentz, shared the touching news as part of a Mother's Day tribute in which he celebrated his own mother, Jevon and the mother of his two eldest sons, Kathryn Lockhart.

"Thanks for giving me life and helping me create it," he said.

"The three strongest mothers in the world.. I'm still a work in progress but u have given three perfect beautiful boys. I love you all til the moon and back."

The 41-year-old Major Lazer star is father to Lazer Lee Louis, 5, and Lockett, 9 with his ex, Lockhart, who appears in one of the photos.

The final photo shows King cradling the pair's newborn, Pace, who was born in March of this year.

King is a model and pageant queen who represented Trinidad and Tobago at the Miss Universe pageant in 2014.

The 30-year-old model was also deputy COO of the Miss World Trinidad and Tobago Pageant in 2018.

Celebrating her first Mother's Day on Sunday, King shared a photo of baby Pace on Instagram, writing: "To my son, As your mother I promise to, Love you, protect you, guide you, teach you, inspire you, provide for you and most importantly pray for you."

King shared news of her pregnancy in October in a sweet post.

"Something about feeling you growing inside me makes me feel so complete. I love you so much already," she wrote.

In March, Diplo opened up about how tough he's finding being separated from his sons due to social distancing rules amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

"This hurts because I miss them so much they are what makes me wake up every day and live and breath, they are my ultimate joy, but this is my sacrifice to make sure everyone around me is safe," he wrote in a post.

"I haven't had this much time home in years, and I wanted to build Legos and watch movies with them.. But for now im just going to stay by the window and listen to them play drums and sing for me," added Diplo.

Diplo has also been romantically involved with DJ Chantel Jeffries, actress Kate Hudson, and singer Katy Perry.

He dated performer M.I.A. from 2003 to 2008 and was rumored to be involved with Madonna in 2015.
