Wedding bells are ringing for Stevie Wonder!
Stevie and Tomeeka, 42, are set to tie the knot in a beachside ceremony on Saturday, June 17 with famous guests including Elton John and Sam Smith in attendance. The “Isn’t She Lovely” star’s nine children will reportedly serve as bridesmaids and groomsmen during the nuptials.

“It is going to be a huge, incredibly fun wedding and Stevie is flying out all his nearest and dearest,” a source revealed. “The guest list is pretty spectacular, and there will be a couple of surprise performances on the night.”
“Stevie has said he may well get up and perform a number, but hasn’t said what song yet,” the insider continued. “There will be a huge party afterwards as well, and the whole day will be about love, laughter and family; Stevie is very close to his, and they will all have a role to play on the big day.”
Stevie and Tomeeka — who is 24 years the singer’s junior — first began dating five years ago in 2012. The couple recently welcomed their first child together, daughter Nia, 2, in December 2014. Stevie is additionally a father to eight older children.

“I got, how many, 22 kids?” he joked before clarifying there was only one baby. “It’s not true. The truth is we’re going to have a wonderful daughter, born in December, [and her] name is going to be Nia, which [means] ‘purpose.'”
Tomeeka’s marriage to Stevie will be his third. The music legend was previously hitched to Motown singer Syreeta Wright from 1970 until 1972 and to designer Kai Millard Morris from 2001 to 2012.
