Robin Thicke and Paula Patton Welcome First Child
R&B crooner, Robin Thicke, and his wife Paula Patton welcomed their first child, Julian Fuego, in Los Angeles on Tuesday, April 6.
Thicke was forced to skip out on a performance at the Los Angeles Staples Center to be present for his son’s birth. He cited “personal reasons” for his absence, but his tour mate, Alicia Keys, sent out her congratulations to the couple from the stage. A rep for the pair told People that “mother, father and son are all doing well.”
Back in December, Thicke talked with Essence.com about his impending fatherhood, explaining that he was nervous about getting things right. “I’m afraid of not being patient enough, but most of the time that’s when I’m scared or worried about the future,” he said. “I want to work on that. But my biggest fear is being able to be there, because I don’t know if kids ever think their parents were there enough.” Thicke, 32, and Patton, 34, will celebrate their fifth wedding anniversary in June. The pair are high school sweethearts.
Robin Thicke released his latest album ‘Sex Therapy,’ in December. The Los Angeles native has been busy on tour with Alicia Keys, and has recorded collaborations with several rappers in recent months, including Nicki Minaj, Jay-Z and Kid Cudi.
