The legendary singer, famous for enduringly popular hits such as Superstition and Isn’t She Lovely, is already a dad to a brood of seven from past marriages and relationships, and allegedly became a father again last year when Tomeeka secretly gave birth.
The happy news has reportedly come as somewhat as a shock to the 64-year-old, but those close to him say he’s over the moon.
“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!”
It’s thought the singer has now moved into Tomeeka’s LA pad, where they are said to be raising their little one together.
“Stevie and Tomeeka had their first child together last year,” a friend divulged. “I know because I attended the baby shower!”
While many enjoy a more relaxed lifestyle later in life, Stevie is apparently pleased to have parental duties once again.
It’s even thought the piano-playing star is ready to dedicate more time to his youngest children, as he feels work commitments often made him miss out on important moments in the past.
“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 insider added.
Stevie is still pursuing music though and is currently preparing for a nationwide tour which kicks off next month.
