Renaissance man Donald Glover is pretty busy these days, as he and girlfriend Michelle confirmed the birth of their second son this weekend. The family news drops just days after the artist revealed season 2 of his FX hit Atlanta would be making its debut this March.
The 34-year-old actor confirmed the baby news to E! News at FX’s TCA, saying, “[Michelle’s] great. She’s good. Baby’s born, so she’s happier now.”
When asked how fatherhood had changed him he replied: “It hasn’t.”
“I think my partner, she takes all the hard stuff to be honest. That’s not even bullsh*t… I haven’t really had to change anything.”
He revealed he was expecting baby number two in September, during his acceptance speech upon winning the Outstanding Lead Actor In A Comedy Series Emmy for his work on Atlanta. Glover and Michelle share eldest son, Legend.
‘I want to thank Michelle, my partner, you love me even with how crazy I get,’ he said onstage at the Microsoft Theater. ‘I want to thank my baby, my son, for just being the joy in my life. I want to thank my unborn son, we’re listening to Stevie tonight.’
Atlanta: Robbin’ Season, will air its first episode March 1 at 10 p.m. Eastern. Co-star Lakeith Stanfield previously promised a February premiere, with delayed production due to Glover’s busy work schedule, which include his playing Lando Calrissian in the upcoming Hans Solo Star Wars movie.
