It will be a boy for Robin Thicke and wife Paula Patton!

Thicke, 32, tells he's already thinking about the life lessons he'll impart to his son. "Teaching him how to respect a woman. Teaching him music. Getting to play him Biggie Smalls at some age, we'll experience that together," he says. "That's the beauty of having a child."

Of course, there are the first-time parent jitters, too, for Thicke and Patton, 33. "I'm afraid of not being patient enough, but most of the time that's when I'm scared or worried about the future," Thicke says. "I want to work on that. But my biggest fear is being able to be there, because I don't know if kids ever think their parents were there enough."

The sexy crooner has previously said his wife was the inspiration behind his latest release, Sex Therapy. "People always say I make baby-making music, so I might as well offer up some sex therapy," he tells Essence.

Perhaps after the baby arrives, he'll be inclined to name the next album Sleep Therapy.
