More than three years after filing for divorce from his second wife, fashion designer Kai Millard Morris, Stevie Wonder is now officially a single man. According to the Associated Press, the divorce was finalized and a settlement was reached in Los Angeles on Monday.

Superior Court Judge Christine Byrd ordered the award-winning music legend to pay $25,000 a month in child support while sharing custody of his 14-year-old and 10-year-old sons with Morris. He will also have the opportunity to take his sons on the road for short time periods.

The couple married in 2001 and separated in 2009. Wonder requested a divorce in 2012, citing irreconcilable differences as the cause.

His first marriage was to Motown singer Syreeta Wright, with whom he separated in 1972. After welcoming his child with girlfriend Tomeeka Robyn Bracy in December 2014, the 65-year-old singer now has a total of nine children from five different women.

Over his long career as a musician, singer, and songwriter (he signed with his first record label at the age of 11), Wonder has received 25 Grammy Awards, recorded more than 30 top ten hits, and sold more than 100 million albums and singles. He has also been honored as an activist for political causes and civil rights: in 2009, he was named a United Nations Messenger of Peace, and in 2014, President Barack Obama awarded Wonder a Presidential Medal of Freedom.
