Music legend Stevie Wonder has welcomed his ninth child! Yes, you’ve read that right – ninth! The beautiful bouncing baby girl is his second child with his girlfriend Tomeeka Robyn Bracy. The news of birth of the newest Wonder family member, named Nia, was confirmed by the singer and songwriter’s representative.
The 64-year-old musician, who is a proud father to eight other kids from previous relationships, confirmed during an interview last month he was expecting another child. Wonder felt like he had to announce that he will be fathering his ninth child, after Page Six reported that the musician and his girlfriend were expecting triplets!
Nia or ‘purpose’ is “one of the seven principles of Kwanzaa,” which was also confirmed and clarified by the singer’s representative.
The Grammy winner was previously married two times. He was married to Syreeta Wright from 1970 to 1971 and Karen Kai Millard Morris from 2001 until 2012. Nia’s eight siblings range in age from a one-year-old to 39.
