Stevie Wonder Welcomes Ninth Child!
Stevie Wonder is a new father once again. The music icon has welcomed his ninth child, his rep confirms. The baby girl is the singer’s second child with girlfriend Tomeeka Robyn Bracy. The newborn is named Nia, which means purpose.
Wonder was first reported to be having another child last month, when the New York Post and other outlets falsely claimed he and Bracy were expecting triplets. The star set the record straight on “The View,” joking, “I got, how many, 22 kids?” More seriously, Wonder clarified, “The truth is, we’re going to have a wonderful daughter born in December.”
“Rumors spread,” said the performer. “Like I said before in the song ‘Superstition,’ when you believe in things you don’t understand, you suffer. So, you know, that was a bunch of bull.” Check out the video below, beginning at the 22-minute mark.
Wonder and Bracy reportedly welcomed their first child, also a girl, last year. His seven other children were born to several other women, and include daughter Aisha Morris, now 39, who inspired some of Wonder’s songs and even collaborated with her father on various music. Congrats to Wonder on his growing family.
