Terrence Howard to welcome fifth child

Terrence Howard is set to become a father for the fifth time.

The 'Empire' actor and his wife Mira Pak - whose son, Qirin Love, was born in May 2015 - have revealed that they are expecting a second child together but have not given any other details.

Terrence, 47, 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."
