Nine kids and counting! Stevie just welcomed his ninth baby and second child with girlfriend Tomeeka Robyn Bracy. Congrats!

Stevie Wonder, 64, got a very exciting early Christmas present on Dec. 17!

Stevie and Tomeeka named their baby girl named Nia! Do you think Stevie is singing, "Isn't She Lovely?" to little Nia right now? We can't wait to see pics!

Stevie first confirmed that he and Tomeeka were expecting their second child together during an appearance on The View in November.

The legendary singer was eager to clear the air after a report in Page Six claimed that he was expecting triplets - now that would be a handful!

"I got, how many, 22 kids?" Stevie joked to the ladies, adding, "It's not true. The truth is we're going to have a wonderful daughter, born in December, [and her] name is going to be Nia, which is 'purpose.'"

Stevie's rep confirms to Us Weekly that Nia's name means purpose, which is "one of the seven principles of Kwanzaa." So sweet!

In addition to his two children with Tomeeka, Stevie has seven other children from four previous relationships. He was previously married to Syreeta Wright from 1970 to 1971 and Karen "Kai" Millard Morris from 2001 until 2012, according to Us Weekly.
