Stevie Wonder fathers triplets

STEVIE Wonder is to be a father to triplets.

The 64-year-old singer and girlfriend Tomeeka Robyn Bracy - who gave birth to his eighth child last year - will welcome three babies into the world in 2015, and insiders say having kids is the key to the 'Superstition' star's happiness.

A source told the New York Post newspaper's Page Six column: "It's Stevie's mechanism for his happiness. I don't know that he set out to have 11 children, including triplets at his age, but it's not like he isn't happy about it or he can't afford children."

The legendary crooner - who has been married twice and has children with five different women - is said to have told friends he hasn't always been available for his kids when they needed him, but as he has grown older, he has developed closer bonds with his brood, who range in age from one to 39 years old.

A source said: "Aisha [his oldest] enjoys her dad quite a bit, they get together and eat and joke.

"He's been helping [his son] Mumtaz with some of Mumtaz's music and he always talks about how talented his son is.

"He knows that being a father is a full-time job and now that he's a little older, he feels like he's up to the task and he doesn't want to let any of them down."
