Wonder continues his legacy with his nine children. The mother of Wonder’s first child is Yolanda Simmons, whom Wonder met when she applied for a job as his secretary for his publishing company. Simmons bore Wonder a daughter on February 2, 1975: Aisha Morris. After Aisha was born, Stevie said “she was the one thing that I needed in my life and in my music for a long time.” Morris was the inspiration for Wonder’s hit single “Isn’t She Lovely”. Morris is a singer who has toured with her father and accompanied him on recordings, including his 2005 album, A Time to Love. Wonder and Simmons had a son, Keita, in 1977.
In 1983, Wonder had a son with Melody McCulley. Wonder has a daughter, Sophia, and a son, Kwame, with a woman whose identity has not been publicly disclosed.
Wonder has two sons with second wife Kai Millard Morris; the elder is named Kailand and he occasionally performs as a drummer on stage with his father. The younger son, Mandla Kadjay Carl Stevland Morris, was born on May 13, 2005, his father’s 55th birthday.
Wonder’s ninth child, and his second with Tomeeka Robyn Bracy, was born in December 2014. Originally thought to be triplets, the couple’s new daughter is named Nia, meaning “purpose” – “one of the seven principles of Kwanzaa”.
