Robin Thicke Reveals Son Julian Is 'A Natural Singer,' As 'He Scored The Lead Part In The Middle School Play'
Talent runs in the family! Robin Thicke thinks his son Julian, whom he shares with ex Paula Patton, might have the gift of music.
Thicke revealed that the 12-year-old started singing from a "very young age."
"I would give him whatever little pointers I could. He's a natural singer and he just got a lead part in the middle school play," the proud dad said, adding that Julian will be starring in Charlie in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
The young artist is getting a bit familiar with playing the guitar, which might be a good opportunity for the tot to write his own songs.
As Julian progresses from singing to playing an instrument, his dad couldn't be happier about the upgrade. "It's really his journey and his life," the Blurred Lines actor noted. "I more encourage him to be himself and love himself."
Thicke also has three other kids: son Luca Patrick, 21 months, and daughters Lola, 3, and Mia, 4, whom, he shares with his wife, April Love Geary.
Finding balance with Patton didn't come easy to the father-of-four after he split from her in 2014. The aftermath of the separation made it challenging for them to navigate co-parenting.
The solution came with talking things out. "We used co-parenting couples therapy, and that really opened the door for communication in a much better way for us," he revealed. "And our son is thriving."
The artist is now focused on spending as much time with his kids as possible. "Nothing makes you prouder as parents when you had some tough times," he disclosed, adding that time heals all wounds.
Despite going their own way, Thicke noted that his ex is an "incredible person" and revealed how they managed to make things work after their split.
"Once you can put yourself second, your son rises to the top and you go, 'It's not about us anymore,'" he explained. "We're very lucky the way everything has worked out."
Thicke spoke on The Jennifer Hudson Show, and he spoke to People about co-parenting.
