Terrence Howard's new son is his 'favourite'

Terrence Howard's son Hero is his "new favourite".

The Hollywood actor and his wife Miranda Pak welcomed their new son in August and he has admitted being a father of young boys is a life-changing experience.

Terrence - who also has a 16-month-old son called Qirin Love with his wife, as well as three other children from a previous relationship - shared: "He's changed my life. He's my everything. He's my new favourite."

However, the 47-year-old star was quick to point out that his definition of the word was based on the needs of the child.

He told 'Live with Kelly': "You know, we do have favourites as parents! The one that needs us the most becomes our favourite."

The Empire' actor is also a grandfather and has revealed his grandchildren have come up with nicknames for his younger two sons.

Terrence shared: "I've got a four-year-old granddaughter and I've got a two-year-old grandson, and they call Hero and Qirin 'Baby Uncle."

Last year, meanwhile, Terrence won his spousal support battle with Michelle Ghent, who he was married to from 2010 until 2013.

Terrence sought to get his divorce settlement from his second wife - who he married in January 2010, but split from 11 months later - thrown out on grounds he signed it under duress and a Los Angeles Superior Court judge sided with his claim.

Michelle had wanted the actor to pay more than his current $5,800-a-month agreement because of his success on 'Empire', but the judge agreed she had blackmailed him with threats of releasing naked photos and videos.

However, the judge also admonished the Hollywood star over allegations of domestic abuse while delivering the ruling.

The judge said: "Terrence is a bully, but that doesn't mean he can't be bullied."
