It’s a boy for Terrence Howard and his wife, Mira! A huge congrats goes out to the ‘Empire’ star as he enters the role of fatherhood for the fourth time. Mira gave birth four weeks ago to the couple’s first child!
So exciting! While Terrence Howard, 46, was at the Monte Carlo TV Festival in Monaco promoting Empire, the actor broke the exciting news about his wife, Miranda Howard, giving birth to their new child. While many celebrities choose unique baby names, Terrence and Mira also went down that path. Find out what name the two chose for their baby boy!
Qirin Love it is! While you may be scratching your head at the name, the meaning behind it is quite adorable. The name comes from Chinese culture and represents a mythical creature (qilin) that is said to be a good omen. While Terrence was at the TV festival, he couldn’t help but gush about the latest addition to his family. “He’s beautiful and strong and a whirlwind and my wife is so happy. She has to be up with him all throughout the day, Terrence told Access Hollywood, while joking, “I wasn’t born with boobs, I’ve started growing some recently.”
With newborns, it can be an exhausting time filled with a lot of new responsibility. Luckily for Terrence, this isn’t his first time taking on the extra father duties. “I pull night duty, so that she can sleep,” he explained. “I keep him with me and will take some of the pre-pumped, you know, breast cheese, whatever you want to call it.” Nice, Terrence!
When it comes to the actor’s other children, his daughters Aubrey and Heaven and son Hunter, were from his previous marriage to Lori McCommas, which came to an end in 2007.
