{UPDATE November 4 :} Screeeeech! Hold the presses! According to TMZ, Stevie’s rep says he’s having ONE baby—no triplets. Phew? So, nine, not 11 kids for the R&B legend.

It won’t be “Isn’t she lovely?” for Stevie Wonder. It’ll be “Aren’t they lovely? So many little babies”—Stevie’s having triplets!

Yes, Page Six was the first to report the R&B icon, 64, and his fiancée, Tomeeka Robyn Bracy, 40, are getting set to welcome triplets.

And get this, the triplets will make eleven kids for Stevie. He’s got eight kids from five other women. And that’s not all! So many little babies, indeed: Tomeeka and Stevie already have a 12-month-old baby together. So, altogether, Stevie’s currently got eight kids ranging in age from 12 months to 39.

“I don’t know that he set out to have 11 children, including triplets at his age,” says a source for Page Six, “but it’s not like he isn’t happy about it or he can’t afford children.”

“He knows that being a father is a full-time job,” the source adds, “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.”

Stevie has admitted in the past that he wasn’t there for his children when they were younger. One of the benefits of being an older dad, he says, is that he’s able to be more present for them.

“Stevie missed so much of his other children’s upbringings,” the source goes on to say. “He’s vowed to be there for their children and for his soon-to-be new wife.”

Stevie and Tomeeka have been together for over a year, and reports say they are engaged. He’s been married twice before—to singer Syreeta Wright (1970 to 1972) and fashion designer Kai Millard Morris (2001 to 2012).

In honour of Stevie’s new additions, then, enjoy (you’ll have this song in your head all day, now, won’t you?)…

Love!
