Robin Thicke 'lost his mojo' after becoming a dad

Robin Thicke lost his "mojo" when he became a first-time father last year (10), because he struggled to balance his career with his new role as a parent.

The Lost Without You hitmaker and his actress wife Paula Patton welcomed little Julian Fuego last summer (10), but Robin Thicke admits they both suffered knocks to their confidence as they tried to get to grips with looking after a baby.

Robin Thicke tells People.com, "It was hard when we became parents, because we had to balance our careers with this new person in our lives. I lost my mojo for awhile. But finally we hit a rhythm, and we are more in love than ever and so supportive of each other. We are both crazy about our son."

The star insists having Julian in his life has changed his approach to music for the better - and he's even dedicated a new track to the tot to encourage him to stand up and fight any challenges he may face as he grows up.

He says, "Since I’ve become a dad, I no longer perform for me, I perform for my family. Julian has changed my music and made me think less of myself. He is an angel, the greatest thing that has ever happened to me...

"I wrote one song called Never Give Up to encourage Julian to fight back when he faces problems in life."
