Terrence Howard is a dad again

Terrence Howard has become a father for the fifth time.

The 'Empire' actor and wife Mira Pak have welcomed a son named Hero into the world, and the 47-year-old star announced his happy news by sharing a picture of the new baby being held by the couple's older son, 15-month-old Qirin.

He tweeted along with a heart emoji: "Hero being held by Qirin."

He then added: "What else is there beyond the love of family. This is where God was born!"

It has not been announced when the tot was born.

The 'Iron Man' actor also has two daughters and a son from a previous marriage, as well as two grandchildren.

He and Mira married in 2013 and divorced in 2015 before later reconciling.

Terrence and Mira's split was revealed in August 2015 when a lawyer involved in a court case to overturn the settlement of his divorce from second wife Michelle Ghent referred to Mira as his "ex-wife".

While Terrence didn't confirm the divorce in his testimony, he was confronted with recorded telephone calls to Michelle just days after his marriage to Mira.

In one call from October 2013 he reportedly professed his love for Michelle, saying: "I will never love someone like I loved you. You are my dream of all time."

Quizzed why he married Mira if he still loved his second wife, Terrence said: "I've got a chance to be OK and to just settle."

Terrence previously claimed in court that he signed his divorce settlement with Michelle under duress as she threatened to leak embarrassing footage of him, as well as audio of him engaging in phone sex with other women.

Michelle's lawyer asked Terrence why he said he loved her in an October 2013 phone call when he claimed she tried to extort him just a year earlier.

He responded: "I loved her, and I was afraid of her also."
