On his relationship with Barbara
I wanted to have a baby by Barbara because she is my kind of woman; the kind of woman I’d like to spend the rest of my life with and this was why I decided from the outset that I’d go the whole hog with her. But she knows that marriage is not something we will dabble into now.
On why he wants his kids to be named after him
I’m building my own dynasty which is why my baby and the other ones that would come after her would bear Timaya as their surname not Odom.

Marriage comes with a lot of responsibilities which are beyond financial or material things. God has blessed me with everything a man needs to have a successful married life and you can bet that Emmanuella and Barbara will get the best of everything money can buy but personally, I don’t feel ready for it.”
