Get to Know Leslie Odom Jr. and Nicolette Robinson's 2 Kids

Leslie Odom Jr.'s two kids with fellow Broadway star Nicolette Robinson are quite possibly destined for greatness. With parents who are as unbelievably talented as these two are, we think it's only inevitable that their daughter and son will follow in their footsteps and become stars themselves — if they want to!

Odom and Robinson, who met in 2008 while working together in LA in "Once on This Island" and married in 2012, make the most of their time together as a family when they're not working on other projects. They even found time to write a children's book, called "I Love You More Than You'll Ever Know," which they released in March. "We try to make bedtime end the day in a really positive way," Robinson told Playbill of the inspiration for the book. "We want our kids to always feel empowered and secure and loved. Ending the day with that before they drift off to sleep is really important. So, we just wanted to contribute something to the book space that reminds kids constantly that they are loved."

Ultimately, the book was all about reminding their kids how much they're loved — and that they deserve to love themselves, too. "I think self-love is one of the most important things," Robinson told Parents in March. "You have to be able to have self-love to love others, to make your way confidently through this world. And I'm still learning; we're still figuring it out. But I do think that part of that journey for your kids is teaching them how to love and teaching them that they are loved so endlessly no matter what they do."

The book's text doubles as lyrics to a song that Odom and Robinson wrote alongside composer Katie Boeck. "I grew up with books on tape. There are still ones that my sister and I quote to each other to this day," Odom told the outlet. "So this is our version of that. You can read the book as a book, or you can follow along with the song." Of course, the musically talented couple recorded their own version of the song, and in the official recording, their kids can be heard singing along at the end.

Lucille Ruby Odom

Odom and Robinson's first child, a daughter named Lucille Ruby, was born on April 23, 2017. Right after Lucy was born, Odom went on "Harry" to share how his life had changed because of her. "I don't know how she does it, but she manages to bring the sunshine inside," he said. He also shared that Lucy was a very easy baby to deal with, something they were grateful for.

Over the years, Lucy's been growing up quickly — and in March 2020, apparently, there was one thing she was very adamant about: breakfast. Odom told Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest at the time that because he was home every day, he would make breakfast for his daughter, but she only ever wanted oatmeal, which he makes from scratch. "She is very, very specific about breakfast," he shared.

Robinson opened up a bit more about Lucy's personality in her interview with Parents. "They're both such amazing humans — we feel very lucky," Robinson says. "They're very different, vibrant, happy, loving kids. Lucy loves people. She loves performing. She loves dancing and singing, and she loves princesses. And she's got a really kind heart."

Able Phineas Odom

Odom and Robinson welcomed their second child, a son named Able Phineas, on March 25, 2021. Odom shared the news of his birth a week later with a sweet photo of his newborn being held by big sister Lucy. "More life! One whole week with our Abe," he wrote in the caption. "Watching Nicolette give birth to these kids...? Simply, the bravest acts I've ever witnessed from a foot away. I love you, sweetheart and I am in awe. Our little family bursts at the seams with joy! And gratitude."

"We are so joyful," Odom said at the 2021 SAG Awards preshow on April 4, 2021. "Award season is wonderful, really it's so nice to have your name included on lists like these, but there's nothing like the joy and the renewed energy and all the wonderful things that happen with a new baby."

Robinson also shared a bit about little Able with Parents. "Able is a bundle of joy," she said. "He's got a great sense of humor. He loves his sister. He loves books, and he's already learning to read."
