Forget worrying about the next R&B album – new dad Robin Thicke is focusing on how to be a great parent, and he's having fun with every lesson.

"I've gotten to spend a lot of time with the baby lately, learning how to be a dad," the singer, 32, said of his newborn son, Julian Fuego, whose mother is actress wife Paula Patton, 34. "I look forward to every day with him, watching him grow and learn … I want to teach him basketball and Al Green. I want to teach him Michael Jackson and all that fun stuff."

Naturally, he has some help while mom is busy with a new movie.





"Yeah, we got some good friends and family, some grandmas helping out," he said Thursday after a performance for Hugo Boss in New York, adding, "I did change a couple of diapers. And then I got tired of that. I like doing the holding and the playing more."
