Wayne Brady to Co-Parent Ex-Wife and Her Partner's Newborn Baby Boy: 'Honored to Be in His Life'

Wayne Brady and ex-wife Mandie Taketa are also parents to 18-year-old daughter Maile

Wayne Brady is expanding on his role as dad.

Last month, the 49-year-old actor announced on Instagram that his ex-wife Mandie Taketa and her boyfriend Jason Fordham welcomed a baby boy via adoption, whom he would be co-parenting along with the couple.

"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, shared in an Instagram video.

"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 are also parents to 18-year-old daughter Maile.
