*Bobby Brown’s latest book “Every Little Step: My Story: Bobby Brown,” is filled with shocking personal admissions about his life and drug-fueled relationship with ex-wife Whitney Houston. During an appearance on ABC’s “The View,” 47-year-old Bobby said after his wife Alicia Etheridge-Brown gives birth to the couple’s third child—his seventh in total—he plans to have a vasectomy.
“This is going to be my last one,” Brown confessed. “She said it and I believe it. She told me if you don’t get clipped, you know, we ain’t having sex anymore!”
Brown has six other children that range in age from 29-years-old to 11-months old. He and his wife will welcome his seventh child within the next few weeks. Bobby’s daughter with Houston, Bobbi Kristina Brown, was found unresponsive in a bathtub in late January 2015. She was kept in a medically induced coma for several months and died in hospice care on July 26, 2015 at the age of 22.
