He loved the fact that she was not as made up as every other girl and they bonded over music. The love birds were both huge fans of the Tribe Called Quests so it made bonding a smooth process.

The Grammy winning artist became a father for the first time in 2008 when his lovely wife delivered a healthy cute son. Pharrell said that his son Rocket is the best song he has ever co-written and id evidently smitten by his adorable son.

The music star says humility and loyalty are two of the most important virtues he trains his son to have as he is a smart kid and for people who are gifted, these two attributes matter a whole lot.
