"Empire" star Terrence Howard and wife Mira have welcomed a new arrival!
The 46-year-old actor's wife gave birth four weeks ago to a boy and they named him Qirin Love, Terrence revealed exclusively to Access Hollywood while promoting his hit Fox music drama at The Monte Carlo TV Festival in Monaco.

"He's beautiful and strong and a whirlwind and my wife is so happy," the actor said, explaining that 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.
Terrence and his wife have been splitting duties when it comes to looking after their newborn.
"She has to be up with him all throughout the day. I wasn't born with boobs, I've started growing some recently," he said with a laugh.
The actor then offered up his unique take on breastfeeding terminology.
"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," he told Access.
This marks the first child for the couple. Terrence is already dad to three children from a previous marriage.
The "Empire" star and Mira got married in 2013.
