Stevie Wonder, 64, Expecting Triplets With Wife-to-Be, 25
Singer Stevie Wonder, 64, is expecting triplets with 25-year-old wife-to-be Tomeeka Robyn Bracy after the couple quietly had a child together a year ago.
Wonder, the longtime Motown legend whose real name is Stevland Morris according to The Grio, settled a multi-million dollar divorce with ex-wife Kai Millard Morris two years ago, according to the National Enquirer, clearing the way for the singer’s relationship with his fiancée Bracy.
Wonder has two children, Kailand, 13, and Mandla, 9, with Morris, noted the Enquirer. The Grio reported Wonder has eight children total through other relationships and the new editions will bump him up to 11.
The Grammy-winning artist and one of Motown first big superstars was previously married to Motown singer/songwriter Syreeta Wright from 1970-1974, noted the tabloid.
“Stevie never thought he’d be a father again so late in life,” a source told the National Enquirer. “It may not have been planned but now he’s excited. He’s been going to all the doctor’s visits and scans with Tomeeka. He actually can’t wait until the birth. Stevie missed so much of his other children’s upbringings, he’s vowed to be there for their children and for his soon-to-be new wife.”
The Enquirer reported that Wonder has moved into Bracy’s home to help raise the children even though he is worth an estimated $110 million.
“It’s all happened very, very quickly,” a source told the National Enquirer this week. “Stevie and Tomeeka met and fell in love instantaneously.”
News of the new family members come as Wonder prepares to embark on an 11-date tour at the end of the year that will cross the nation beginning Nov. 6, according to Rolling Stone magazine. Tickets for the tour have been on sale since late September for the tour highlighting his hit-making 1976 album “Songs in the Key of Life.”
The tour opens in Madison Square Garden Nov. 6 before moving on to Washington, D.C. Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia, Auburn Hills, Michigan, Atlanta, Toronto, Las Vegas, Seattle, and then concluding in Oakland’s Oracle Arena on Dec. 5.
Wonder began his career as Little Stevie Wonder at the age of 10 in early 1960 after Ron White of The Miracles brought him to Motown founder Barry Gordy and became of the labels early success stories, according to Rolling Stone.
