Robin says spending time with his son is the best part of his day! Aww!

Singer Robin Thicke and his wife, actress Paula Patton, are busy with their baby boy Julian Fuego, but they love every minute of it! At the American Music Awards, Robin spoke about how much fatherhood has changed him: “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.”

In fact, being a dad is so great that it inspired his new album Love After War, which comes out Dec. 6. “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.”

Robin said the best thing about being a dad was the unconditional love: “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 the crooner’s favorite lullabies to sing to his son? “Hakuna Matata” and “In The Jungle” — Julian loves them!

But as much as Robin and his wife love being parents, one is enough for them. “I think that anybody who has two babies — God bless you — it’s not something we are planning on doing,” he shared.

Do YOU think fatherhood changes men for the better like it did for Robin, HollyMoms?
