Robin Thicke had good reason for canceling his portion of a show with Alicia Keys Tuesday evening!

He and actress wife Paula Patton welcomed their first child, son Julian Fuego, on Tuesday, April 6th in Los Angeles, PEOPLE has confirmed exclusively.

“Mother, father and son are all doing well,” says Thicke’s rep, while Keys offered her congratulations from the stage.

Grandfather Alan Thicke says Julian “already has Robin’s voice, Paula’s sense of drama – he arrived a little early – and my hair.”

Leave your best wishes for the couple at the left!

Congratulations Paula and Robin on the birth of your child. To Paula, welcome to motherhood 🙂 being a mother of two, i can tell you, it’s a journey, but a blessed one all the same.

Congratulations to Robin & Paula!

Wow, what a middle name! At first I was like what were they thinking but after saying it a couple of times I really like it. It is certainly original. I wonder what’s the story behind that. They are certainly on Fire as a couple!

Sunshine on

May God bless you and your family on this glorious occasion..

Tee on

Maybe Fuego (Fire) is a family last name.

Lola Monroe on

Not being a native speaker, I was wondering…how do you pronounce ‘Thicke’?

And congratulations Paula and Robin!

May on

Congrats to the happy couple, this baby will be very happy
Welcome Julian!

May on

It’s pronounced “thick.” Congrats to them.

Cita on

Congrats on the new addition to the family. I love this couple and Robin Thicke’s music is hot. A lot of people are sleeping on his music and its unfortunate because he is wonderful!! Cannot wait to see pics of the new bundle of joy.

@ Caroline
Its pronounced thick. The “e” is silent.

Crystal on

CONGRATULATIONS!! I love the middle name Fuego! Can’t wait to see the little guy! 🙂

Romy on

they give birth to a soap star!

Jen DC on

Love the name. I’m sure he’s gorgeous and granddad is HI-larious. “He has my hair.” Alan, that thick head of hair is all gonna fall out! But it’ll grow back, I’m sure.

Congrats all around.

Romy on

Jen, many babies keep all of their hair. My kids never lost theirs.

Andrea on

Congratulations to Robin and Paula! Julian Fuego Thicke (I love Fuego, which is Spanish for “fire”; very unique) is a great name and he’s sure to be as gorgeous as his parents!

paula on

Wow! Congratulations…I gotta say I’m a little freaked out because I’m due in may and I thought when they have their baby I’ll have my boy too!!! But I’m not ready yet!!!

Anonymous on

Ahhhh! Yeah. Congrats to them. They seem like lovely people and that baby is sure to be good looking…. Fuego is a family name….

JJ Cole Collections on

Congratulations!! We are sure he is adorable!!

Cookie on

Congratulations! Love the update from Grandpa Alan, so cute and funny!

CelebBabyLover on

May- I did not realize that Thicke was prounouced that way (I always just assumed it was pronouced “Thick-ee”). I don’t know if I’d want that for a last name!

That being said, congrats to them! 🙂

Lola Marie on

This announcement surprised me! Lola Monroe I was thinking the same. I thought she was due later.

I was really excited about this celeb baby because Paula and Robin have been together so long.

Welcome to the world baby Julian.

Patrick on

Adorable couple! Julian sure is adorable! Congratz

lem on

the reason why his name is “fuego” is because either paula or robin are a fire zodiac sign, ergo… fire=fuego in spanish… they also said that if it were a girl, the middle would be “azul” because again, one of the them is a water zodiac sign…ergo, azul=blue=water…

Jessi on

I was due around the same time And had my son in the end of December. Its crazy to think I would be about to deliver if he didn’t want to come play.

virgolady on

Congratulations!!! You two do good work!!! He is no doubt going to be a lady killer with those gorgeous genes. So proud. God Bless!

Dana Trentacost on

Congrats, that’s great!

Tammy on

Congratulations Robin & Paula, you had your son on my B’day the 6th…..Good for all of you….Julian Fuego is a cool name.

CelebBabyLover on

Lola Monroe and Lola Marie- Robin is quoted in the post as saying that Julien came a little early. 🙂

Claudia S on

Congrats to Paula and Robin! Love the name. When she was on Jay Leno awhile back she explained the name Fuego. It has something do to with her astrological sign or something being Fire. Had it been a girl they were going to use middle name Aqua as Robin’s sign has something to do with water.

Claudia S on

HA! You’re right. She did say Azul, I got my water references mixed up..LOL

FC on

Aww, many congrats to them on Julian’s safe arrival. I’m impatient, but I’m already counting down the minutes until the first glimpse of this little baby boy. 🙂

CelebBabyLover on

lem- Interesting! So it seems like we know what they’ll use as a middle name for a daughter if they ever have one! 🙂

Niko on

Congrats!. Welcome to the world, Julian Fuego. Incidentally, I just realized how much Robin Thicke looks like Brad Pitt used to look in the late 90’s in this pic, hehe.

Anna Isobel on

Welcome! Dear boy! Be happy!

jim durante on
