The DJ known as Diplo said he hasn't met his newborn son in-person yet because of the coronavirus.

"So I had an entire a-- baby during quarantine," Diplo wrote on Instagram Monday. "I was hesitant to post him because not only does he already had a better haircut than me.. But also because I havent met him yet since we are separated by a million miles and closed borders."

Diplo confirmed he has a son with model Jevon King with a Mother's Day post thanking "the three strongest mothers in the world."

"Thanks for giving me life and helping me create it," the DJ and recorder producer wrote on Sunday. "I'm still a work in progress but u have given three perfect beautiful boys."

The post included a picture of him and his mother, Barbara Jean Cox, and a picture of his ex-girlfriend, Kathryn Lockhart, with whom he has two sons, Lockett, 10, and Lazer, 6. Diplo also posted a picture of King holding their son, Pace.

King, who represented Trinidad and Tobago at the Miss Universe pageant in 2014, announced in March that she had given birth to a baby boy with a picture of her holding her son on Instagram, but did not disclose who the baby's father was at the time.

She shared the same photo of herself holding Pace that Diplo posted and another photo of their son to commemorate her "first Mother's Day" Sunday.

"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 wrote.

Diplo said that "Pace and his mommy are super healthy and happy" and that he's looking forward to meeting them "as soon as we turn a corner on this world shutdown."
