20 July 2017 Entertainment
Motown legend Stevie Wonder was married in a lavish ceremony in Los Angeles over the weekend.
The legendary 67-year-old music man wed his 42-year-old girlfriend, Tomeeka Robyn Bracy, in a star-studded wedding at the Hotel Bel-Air over the weekend, reports People. The pair have two children together.
However, the family insider did reveal that John Legend serenaded Wonder and Bracy with a performance of Wonder’s hit song “Overjoyed.”
Bracy wore a simple white gown while the “Superstitious” singer opted for a long dark colored jacket with black pants.
Wonder donned his trademark sunglasses and greeted about 160 wedding guests by taking selfies with most of them.
A Trip Down Memory Lane…
Wonder has been married twice before. He was married to Motown singer-songwriter and frequent collaborator Syreeta Wright from 1970 until 1972. He was then married from 2001 until 2012 to fashion designer Kai Millard. In October 2009, Wonder and Millard separated and then Wonder filed for divorce in August 2012. Wonder has nine children by five different women.
Previously reports said that 25-time Grammy winner had planned to include his seven other children, who include Aisha, 42, Kwame, 28, Sophia, Keita, 39, Kailand, 16, Mumtaz, 33, and Mandla, 11, as bridesmaids and his best men.
During the touching ceremony, Wonder paid tribute to his late mother, Lula Hardaway, who died in 2006 and didn’t always agree with his choice of women.
“He said a few words, looked up and said, “Momma, you’d be proud, I got it right this time,” the family source told Radar.
