Robin Thicke On Parenting: “I Got Tired Of All That Diaper Changing Ish, Prefer Holding And Playing…”

- By Bossip Staff

Robin Thicke chitchats it up on being a dad:

“I’ve gotten to spend a lot of time with the baby lately, learning how to be a dad,” the singer, 32, said of his newborn son, Julian Fuego, whose mother is actress wife Paula Patton, 34. “I look forward to every day with him, watching him grow and learn … I want to teach him basketball and Al Green. I want to teach him Michael Jackson and all that fun stuff.” Naturally, he has some help while mom is busy with a new movie.

“Yeah, we got some good friends and family, some grandmas helping out,” he said Thursday after a performance for Hugo Boss in New York, adding, “I did change a couple of diapers. And then I got tired of that. I like doing the holding and the playing more.”

  • WTF

    They seem to be a good couple.

    But African Diva you have to be outta your mind. Robin is good. But no one’s putting him with Legend, Hamilton and Maxwell.

    @ WTF

    I am a fan of all four but I don’t think any of them are all that. All of them together don’t equal my D’Angelo. They barely can hang with Raphael Saadiq.

  • aunddoggandauntfail

    lolz this is a very genuine sweet couple. his comments on diaper changing are so adorable. I would buy a Robin Thicke album before a John Legend album anyday.

  • SamanthaTrader

    I know they are a low-key couple, but does anybody have any pictures of their infant son? I bet he’s an adorable baby.

    (passes out exhausted)

    Sorry man… that takes a lot more energy than I realized. Imma leave that one to the professional for when he gets here. (These just jokes real black…just jokes)

  • southern twist

    lol yall crazy

  • Robert

    Devotee, any white male dating a black woman is fine to you heffas.

    Robin thick is a lounge singer compared to john legend, this dude is no where near legends status or anyone in R&B’s status.

    The guy is a decent singer but is no where near legend and legend isnt that large of an act so that should tell you how minuscule homie is in the industry. He can sing but I see Robin more of a hook kind of guy. He sings hooks for other people.

    Why wasn’t this labeled as swirl but Chloe and Lamar is?

    I do not find him attractive at all

    @ Jenno

    that’s where you are wrong. any man that treats a woman with love, respect and total admiration is fine as hell. Seal is fine as hell. Robin is fine as hell. Will is fine as hell. President Obama is fine as hell.

    So because he doesn’t match your level of looks she could do better. That man is not beating her, living off of her financially, does not have outside children, yet she can do better. In this day and age, that girl won the damn lottery.
