The "Uptown Funk" artist, 48, shared how parenthood has transformed his creativity — and songwriting — since welcoming his first child. When asked on the 66th Annual Grammy Awards red carpet if his daughter has inspired his music, he replied: "A lot actually."

"I've always just been like someone who's stayed in the studio all the time," he said. "And now it's like, there's no song or idea more important than bath time and getting home. That I love."

Despite usually rushing home for those family moments, Ronson and wife Grace Gummer took the Sunday night awards show as an opportunity to kick back. "We have a one year old daughter, me and my wife so maybe we'll party a little tonight," he added.

The "Electricity" musician and Gummer — Meryl Streep's daughter — welcomed their first child in January 2023. Earlier this year, Ronson thanked both his wife and daughter in his Critics Choice Awards acceptance speech for best song: Barbie's “I’m Just Ken”! “To my wife and my daughter, Ruthie and Grace, you are my world and my everything, so thank you so much,” Ronson said.

The pair announced their pregnancy in October 2022 when Gummer, 38, stepped out with her baby bump at W Magazine's 50th anniversary party in New York City. It was actually Ronson's sister Annabelle Dexter-Jones who exclusively confirmed the child's birth to PEOPLE in March 2023.

"[Gummer] just had the baby. She's two and a half months now," Dexter-Jones told PEOPLE at the Planned Parenthood Spring Into Action Gala Benefit. "She's stunning."
