The proud father took to his official Facebook to share photos of special event with his 12.9 millions fans.

“These pictures are from our son’s christening yesterday. Christening him in the gospel,” he wrote. “I had this church built in my backyard. It’s almost a direct replica of the one my Mother grew up in. It was in her honor. I know she was with us in spirit. Thank you to all our family and friends for joining us.”

He also took to time specifically thank Aman’s god parents Oprah Winfrey, Cicely Tyson and Oliver Ripley.
