Rap-Up TV: Robin Thicke Wants His Son to Be Kobe Bryant

Robin Thicke became a father earlier this week when his wife Paula Patton gave birth to their first child, a boy named Julian Fuego. The R&B crooner told Rap-Up TV that he’s not looking for his son to follow in his musical footsteps. Instead, he wants him to follow in larger footsteps—size 14 to be exact.

“I hope he’s Kobe Bryant. I’d really like it if he could play basketball very well,” said Thicke. “Like Tiger Woods, I’mma have him shooting that ball at two years old. I’mma have him focused.”
