The first-time papa is getting plenty of advice from those who have gone before him, including: Keep any potential baby names to yourself. "That's the first advice people gave me: 'Look, when you start thinking about names, don't f*cking tell your family. Everyone will start piping in there.'" He would not spill the beans to Billboard either, but adds, "It's a family name, so it's very nice. It's not like Moonchild or Tinkerbell or something like that."
Fatherhood may affect his songwriting, but he says a greater pull right now is the piano his wife recently gave him for his birthday. "I've never played piano, and I've always wanted to. I taught myself how to play every instrument that I play. I've never taken lessons. Just before my birthday, I sat down and started to figure out how to play piano, just by ear. I'm not f*cking Liberace, but I'm figuring it out."
