Following his exciting announcement, Lionel — who is dad to three kids, Nicole, 33, Miles, 21, and Sofia, 17 — revealed his son was the person who finally convinced him to perform in Las Vegas.
“I asked him, ‘So Miles, what do you think about Vegas? Should I do it?’ He goes, ‘Oh my God, dad. We are going to have the great time. WE are going to have the greatest time,’” the singer said in an interview on Wednesday, according to Page Six.
