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.
