Hitmaker Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Thursday.

Usher, Sean “Diddy” Combs and Stevie Wonder were among the celebrity pals who saluted the singer/songwriter and producer as he unveiled his pavement plaque on Hollywood Boulevard.

The multi-Grammy winner told fans he would never have thought that one day he would have a star, stating, “That was not part of the plan. That’s what makes it an amazing thing.”

And pal Toni Braxton admitted she was not convinced he would accept the honor: “Kenny is kind of shy… and he’s very modest. So I know it took a lot of pushing to get him to even commit to this.”

Braxton went on to credit Edmonds, who is working with her on a new album, for helping her come to terms with her marriage split, adding, “He’s been my big brother and helping me get through this phase. It’s tough.”

The R&B star’s divorce from Keri Lewis was finalized in July.
