*Smooth voiced R&B singer, Robin Thicke is a happy new father, but he is beginning to feel those diaper changing pains. He says he’d rather be playing with his son rather than changing poopy diapers.

“I did change a couple of diapers. And then I got tired of that. I like doing the holding and the playing more,’ Thicke told PEOPLE recently.

Thicke and his wife, Paula Patton, brought their son Julian Fuego into the world earlier this year.

“I’ve gotten to spend a lot of time with the baby lately, learning how to be a dad,” says Thicke. “I look forward to every day with him, watching him grow and learn … I want to teach him basketball.”
