Stevie Wonder & Kai Morris Are Proud Parents of 2 Sons
Stevie Wonder's two sons with his ex-wife Kai Millard Morris are making a name for themselves in entertainment, and they have both found ways to follow in their famous parent's footsteps.
The apple doesn't fall far from the tree when it comes to the children of Stevie Wonder and his ex-wife, Kai Millard Morris. Their sons, Kailand and Mandla recently landed themselves on the cover of PAPER magazine.
Sharing a few images from the shoot, Kai graciously thanked the team behind the shoot and revealed that he and his brother were "dipped down head to toe in [Dior]."
Stevie married Kai in 2001, and after separating in 2009, the couple eventually filed for divorce in 2012. Their break-up made headlines when Stevie was ordered to pay a shocking amount of child support.
She also received praise from Oprah Winfrey in 2009 after she designed a collection for Michelle Obama. In his interview with PAPER, 18-year-old Kailand revealed that he is pursuing a career in fashion.
"I've been around fashion my whole life since I was a little baby. I was always attending shows and going backstage," he admitted. He shared that he is trying to find his own voice with the launch of his fashion line.
Kailand is currently working on a unisex collection for KOM clothing. Working under the mentorship of the creative director of Dior Homme, Kim Jones, he called the whole experience "surreal."
15-year-old Mandla has chosen to follow in his legendary father's footsteps and is pursuing a career in music. While he admits to enjoying the world of fashion, his passion is music, he explained:
"Watching my dad play the piano at home, or seeing him on tour or in the studio. I've always had a love for it."
Mandla has also made a name for himself on screen. In 2018 he appeared in "Dancing with the Stars Junior" and placed fifth.
He made another big break when he appeared in a cameo for the Academy Award-winning movie, "A Star is Born" as the pastor's son.
