R&B icon Stevie Wonder, 64, is expecting triplets with his girlfriend, Tomeeka Robyn Bracy, according to a new report.
These children will be the ninth, 10th and 11th for the “Superstition” singer who is already father to eight children with five different women.
“It’s Stevie’s mechanism for his happiness,” a family source said of the new pregnancy. “I don’t know that he set out to have 11 children, including triplets at his age, but it’s not like he isn’t happy about it or he can’t afford children.”
The Grammy winner’s children range in age from 1-year-old to 39-years-old. He and current girlfriend, Tomeeka, are already parents to an older child who was born last year. Stevie and Tomeeka, 40, have been dating for more than a year, the report states.
“He knows that being a father is a full-time job and now that he’s a little older, he feels like he’s up to the task and he doesn’t want to let any of them down,” the source told the NY Post.
Stevie has been married twice; to Motown singer Syreeta Wright from 1970 – 1972 and to designer Kai Millard Morris from 2001 – 2012. He has also fathered children with Yolanda Simmons and Melody McCulley.
