Terrence Howard is a dad again

Terrence Howard is a dad again - the actor and his wife Mira welcomed their first son together last month (May15).

The Empire star was promoting the hip-hop drama at the Monte Carlo TV Festival in Monaco on Monday (15Jun15), when he told news show Access Hollywood all about his baby son Qirin Love.


He said, "He's beautiful and strong and a whirlwind and my wife is so happy."


Howard, 46, went on to explain his son's name is derived from the mythic Chinese creature, the qilin, which is said to appear before a time of prosperity or serenity.


The actor added he and his wife have been splitting up baby duties when they can, joking, "She has to be up with him all throughout the day. I wasn't born with boobs... She has the boobage and nurses him during the day. So, I pull night duty, so that she can sleep and I keep him with me and will take some of the pre-pumped, you know, breast cheese, whatever you call it."


Howard has three adult children, daughters Aubrey and Heaven and son Hunter, from his first marriage to Lori McCommas, who he divorced for a second time in 2007. He was also married to Michelle Ghent for a year from 2010, before secretly tying the knot with model/restaurateur Mira in late 2013.
