Robin Thicke's Father: "Adopt Ethiopian Kids" Like Brangelina

Advises his son, daughter-in-law on becoming a "power couple."

Published October 9, 2013

Robin Thicke and Paula Patton are already a power couple, but the "Blurred Lines" singer's father Alan Thicke has some advice on how to take their fame to the next level.

"If you only adopt a few Ethiopian kids, you'd be the next Brangelina," the elder Thicke, star of the popular 1980s sitcom Growing Pains, told Us Weekly. He added, "I'm thrilled for him. I've always dabbled in music. If I could have grown up to be Robin Thicke, I would have. But I'm glad somebody in the family did."

Thicke and Patton are already parents to three-year-old Julian.  With or without taking grandpa's advice, it seems the singer and actress (who recently starred in the romantic comedy Baggage Claim) are doing fine in the fame department. is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
