Wayne Brady is broadening his responsibilities as a father.
Last month, the 49-year-old actor announced on Instagram that his ex-wife Mandie Taketa and her partner Jason Fordham had adopted a baby boy, with whom he would co-parent.
“He’s gonna call me Duncle (Daddy/Uncle) because I plan on being around and doing all that stuff,” Brady, who is also the baby’s godfather, said in a video posted on Instagram.
“Hey y’all, meet Sunny! I love this little man already. They say it takes a village to raise a child and they’re right! The village of @mandietaketa, myself, and @jasonmichaelfordham raised @theofficialmailebrady,” the TV host captioned the video. “All children will know is love if that’s what you show them. I’m honored to be in his life as his ‘Duncle’ and I love Mandie and Jason for including me in their journey.”
Brady and Taketa have an 18-year-old daughter named Maile.
Taketa shared the joyous news of the new addition on Instagram, stating that she and Fordham “expanded our blended family” with the arrival of “birth mom, Ana” and son “Sundance-Isamu.”
“Ana, thank you for making me a mommy again along with you. Thank you for blessing Jason with the gift of fatherhood, making Maile a big sister, & Wayne a godfather. He’s going to spoil Sunny like crazy!” she added.
Brady shared a wonderful sequence of images with his godson earlier this month, both dressed in Versace.
“#twins Duncle Wayne and Sunny. Versace Boys 2021 aka The Diaper Dudes!” he wrote in the caption of a recent Instagram image.
