Terrence Howard is about to become a dad for the fourth time and he’s dishing on when the baby will be making its arrival. Also, the actor became a granddad for the second time, welcoming his new grandson last week. Get the latest inside….
“EMPIRE” star Terrence Howard stopped by “Live With Kelly & Michael” this morning where he dished on all the new, exciting baby news in his personal life. He just welcomed a grandson AND he’s preparing to welcome a new baby boy of his own!
While chatting it up with Kelly Ripa & Michael Strahan, the 45-year-old actor revealed he became a granddad for the second time last week after his eldest daughter Aubrey gave birth to her son named Adrian, joining his two-year-old granddaughter Hazel Gayle.

Not only that, he and his wife Miranda Howard are expecting (which was announced during a NYE party earlier this year) the star’s fourth child and he confirmed he’s having a boy that will be due in May!
“My oldest daughter gave me a granddaughter two years ago and now I’ve got a grandson, Adrian, a week ago. It’s something else to become apart of something bigger than yourself. And then my wife, we’re due in May and I’m having another boy”.
Terrence then went on to talk about the scene on “Empire” where he puts his 5-year-old son in a trash can after he caught him wearing his mother’s heels. He said it was difficult to shoot, but once he got it right, the director (Lee Daniels) was brought to tears seeing what had happened to him as a child play out in front of him.
He also talked about how his weight almost caused him to get let go from the show. The Hustle & Flow actor said he started on “Empire” weighing 250lbs (he gained weight for another FOX series) and had a problem getting rid of the weight. To help him trim the fat, he said at the end of every scene the crew would join him to do push-ups until failure. He then challenged Michael & Kelly to a push-ups challenge. Ha!
