Little Big Man
But for now, Dad's on his own—and doing fine. "He's the happiest little fellow," says Alphin, 42, of his first child with wife Christiev, 43, a stylist. "He never cries really loud. And if he starts to whimper, I'll just harmonize with him. After about 30 seconds, he starts smilin' again." With original serenades like "Booby Man," how can he not? Born by C-section Nov. 2, 10 months after his parents eloped, Lincoln "fascinates" his dad, from how he breastfeeds to what he wears. Says Christiev: "We don't do goofy outfits with tails." When Kenny found friends dressing Lincoln in socks with little balls once, he said, "You are not putting those on my son." The couple's biggest concession to parenthood: On the road (Lincoln has already been overseas twice and is a regular on the tour bus) they now travel in a separate bus from his jam-all-night godfather. Still, Alphin says he hopes Lincoln will learn a lot from Uncle John: "His tenacity and creativity...." Or simply, interjects Rich, "What not to do!"
