Stevie Wonder Welcomes His Ninth Child – Daughter Nia

December 18, 2014


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!

To make things clear and to share his happiness with the world, Wonder joked a little and said “I got, how many, 22 kids? 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 is ‘purpose.’”

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.
