Pharrell Williams to become dad for second time

Pharrell William and wife Helen Lasichanh are expecting a new addition to the family!

The proud parents of seven-year-old Rocket Ayer are reportedly expecting their second child together after Helen was spotted with a baby bump while the pair attended a Chanel-hosted dinner in L.A. According to E! News the couple have been "wanting another child for a while".

The Blurred Lines singer has previously spoken about his first son's unusual name, telling Oprah Winfrey: "In the same way the Indians named their children after a force or animal or element, we named him after a man-made machine that was meant to go up, meant to ascend.

"Metaphorically, it was because of, you know, Stevie Wonder's Rocket Love, Elton John's Rocket Man and Herbie Hancock's Rocket. All of my favourite musicians. And his middle name is not Man. It's Ayer after Roy Ayers." 

Pharrell and Helen dated for several years before they wed in 2013, and although the pair keep their personal lives close to their chests, the 43-year-old has previously opened up about their relationship, and how it didn't have the most conventional of beginnings.

"She didn't answer half of my text messages [at first]," he told Oprah. "I was like, 'Oh yeah?' because I had that kind of money and because I had that kind of reach, I thought I was entitled and I had learned that no, she has a boyfriend and she's not interested."

The pair were just friends for two-and-a-half years before Helen became single and they began dating, but according to the star, his own actions almost cost him the relationship. He said: "I hurt her a lot in the very beginning once she was free and was available, because I had given her all of this attention but I wasn't ready to like, let go.

"I looked at my life and I was like, 'Man, I could keep doing this for another 10 years, is that what I want to do?' And so I made a decision. And then we made a decision and just started dating."
