Exciting news from singer Brian McKnight! In January, he and his partner Leilani Mendoza welcomed their newest addition, a beautiful baby boy. They initially named him Brian Kainoa Makoa McKnight.
However, Brian recently shared some heartwarming updates. He decided to change his son’s name to Brian Kainoa Makoa Jr., and in a touching move, Brian also decided to officially become a senior, matching his son’s name.
Brian expressed his joy in a post, sharing, ‘I’m proud to announce that I’ve legally changed my name to perfectly reflect my legacy.’ So, from now on, he’ll be known as BRIAN KAINOA MAKOA MCKNIGHT SR. He even released a special album, ‘MCKNIGHTtime LULLABIES’, inspired by this wonderful journey of fatherhood.
How heartwarming is that? 😊🎶

Fans have expressed concerns about this change, mainly because Brian already has a child named after him. His first child, who is 33 years old, goes by the name Brian McNight Jr. The 54-year-old singer and his son have not yet commented on the situation.
In addition to his eldest and youngest sons, Brian also has three other children from previous relationships: Niko, Brianna, and Clyde. It’s worth noting that this isn’t the first time questions have arisen about the singer’s commitments to his children. Earlier this year, there were some accusations of him being more supportive towards his stepchildren compared to his biological children.
