Rapper Ronnie DeVoe recently celebrated the fourth birthday of his twin sons Ronald and Roman DeVoe, who looked adorable in their matching blue shirts. Check out the boys' cute video.
Ronnie DeVoe is one of the most talented hip-hop stars in the entertainment industry. Besides his timeless celebrity status, the former New Edition band member is a proud father of two charming children.
The 53-year-old doting dad shares his twin boys, Ronald, and Roman DeVoe, with his wife of 15 years, Shamari Fears, a reality star and a singer-songwriter from the pop-R&B girl group Blaque.

Like how he values his musical career, DeVoe holds his twin sons in high regard. Recently, the dedicated father posted a cute video of his sons in honor of their fourth birthday. He wrote:
"HAPPY 4th BIRTHDAY YOUNG KINGS!! Daddy loves you to life…!"
In the delightful clip, the twins wore blue T-shirts with prints, but their shorts were in different colors. In the first video, Fears and DeVoe were both heard greeting their sons in the background.
After greeting the little boys, Fears hilariously asked how old they are now. Ronald, who donned dark blue shorts and red slippers, quickly replied he's four years old.
Ronald appeared proud that he's a year older now. When DeVoe panned the camera to Roman, who wore red-printed shorts and blue slippers, the happy father asked the same question to his little one.
It took a few seconds for Roman to realize he shares the same age as his brother. He counted with his tiny hands, flashed a bright smile, and showed to his famous dad he's four.
Besides the fun clip, DeVoe also posted a photo of the twins that also featured a sash with a birthday greeting in English and Spanish. The "Candy Girl" hitmaker's post amassed more than 25,000 likes.
Before embracing fatherhood, DeVoe enjoyed his fame as a member of the 1980 teen pop band New Edition.
"They are absolutely adorable," a fan commented. Other followers noted how Roman looked adorable when he counted with his fingers to show his age, while others left birthday messages in the comment section.
DeVoe and Fears, who have been married since 2006, welcomed their twins in 2017. Being superstars in their own right, the twins have their own Instagram account where their parents share tons of captivating pictures of them.
Under the account @devoetwins, Roman and Ronald have more than 60,000 followers. Their account bio reads they are future humanitarians, philanthropists, and young trillionaires.
Being a father of twins at 50 has been DeVoe's greatest joy and blessing. The "Poison" singer described fatherhood as like no other, adding, "It's like I'm whole now — it's crazy!"
Before embracing fatherhood, DeVoe enjoyed his fame as a member of the 1980 teen pop band New Edition. Like DeVoe, his wife was also a part of the girl band Blaque as its lead singer from 1996 to 2008.
DeVoe's New Edition band members were Michael Bivins and Rickey Bell. After leaving the band, the three singers formed Bell Biv DeVoe and released such hits as "Do Me," "Gangsta," and "I Thought It Was Me."
Meanwhile, Fears pursued a career on TV and movies after she left her band. The R&B royalty appeared in several series, including Pamela Anderson's show "V.I.P" and the "Real Housewives of Atlanta."
It was in "RHOA" that Fears and DeVoe deepened their friendship with former co-stars Kandi Burruss and Porsha Williams. The latter was Fears' friend since high school.
Fears also appeared in movies "Bring It On" and in "Honey." Besides appearing in numerous films and TV shows, she and DeVoe continue to make music together.
