He really is a man of wonder, because at 64, Stevie Wonder is about to become a dad again, thanks to his younger girlfriend, 40-year-old Tomeeka Robyn Bracy. The legendary musician has just revealed that he and Bracy are expecting another baby girl—the celebrity couple already has one daughter together. According to the singer himself, the baby is due in December and they’re going to name her Nia, which he says means “Purpose.”
A few days before Stevie Wonder shared the news, rumors had surfaced that the celebrity couple was expecting twins. But he has since confirmed that those reports were “a bunch of bull” and that there’s only one bun in the oven. Even still, this latest baby will bring Stevie Wonder’s grand total to nine—he’s already a father of eight other kids from five different relationships. His youngest is one year old (his first daughter with Bracy) and his oldest is 39.
Stevie Wonder’s May-December relationship with Tomeeka Robyn Bracy reportedly got serious after his second divorce was finalized in 2012. Some news outlets are reporting that the celebrity couple has already gotten engaged, but that rumor hasn’t yet been confirmed or denied.
