    Moreover, the singer also candidly talked about his life as a new dad and how it has affected life in a positive way and that he has been very busy promoting his new single, "Strip That Down."

    He said, "She knows that I'm going on tour, so obviously she's got a lot to deal with. Which is hard," he said about Cole. "I thought that I'd get the call saying, we need a nanny for this, but no, she's doing everything. She's really pushing herself with it, bless her."

    Further, he said, how his girlfriend has helped him volunteering to be the one to get up and feed their baby at night.

    "She said there's no point in us both being tired and there's gonna be points in the day when I need you to be on it, so I need you awake," he said.

    "As a man, night feeds are kind of pointless at times, because, you as a woman you're so connected to a baby, it's something that a man just does not have," he continued. "You have that super power as a woman, where you are, you know, your heartbeats are in even in sync."
