In a 2018 New York Times interview, Roy Wood Jr. remarked on his life with Salone and his child;

“I have a kid and a girlfriend, and I’m gone enough as it is. So any time I can get home and be the one to deal with my son in the morning so my girl can sleep in a little bit, I try to do that. He’s 20 months. He’s a wrecking machine.”

Making his girlfriend rest, he takes up multitasking to care for his son.

“I’m up at 6:30 or 7 a.m. I try to make him breakfast. It’s usually oatmeal or something that his mom already blended. We do flashcards, you know, just basic letters and numbers. We’re working on a few words. Depending on what he’s doing, I may pop a headphone in my ear and listen to a set from the night before that I’m trying to work on that night for a show, trying to see if I can tighten it up a bit. There’s a lot of multitasking going on”.
