Singer Robin Thicke and his wife, actress Paula Patton have been enjoying their baby boy Julian Fuego. And at the American Music Awards, Thicke said that fatherhood has changed him tremendously.
“I thought I was a man before I had a baby, but now I finally realize that I have become a real man because it takes a lot of compassion and patience to be a good husband and father.”
Robin’s new album, “Love After War,” due out Dec. 6, is inspired by Julian. “It’s about the inner demons that we all fight, and my lady and I just had a baby and we have a one and a half year old child now,” he explained. “One you see what a woman goes through having a baby, you know what real compassion, understanding, patience is all about, so that’s absolutely what the album is about.”
So what is Robin’s favorite part of fatherhood? “The best thing about being a dad is that somebody loves you unconditionally, which my mom never did, I am just kidding — no, the time I spend with my child is the greatest time of every day and it’s never enough.”
And don’t plan on seeing any siblings for Julian. “I think that anybody who has two babies — God bless you — it’s not something we are planning on doing,” Thicke shared.
