Terrence Howard has gushed over his “mythical” son Qirin Love, who was born in May.

The 46-year-old Empire actor’s wife Mira gave birth to their baby boy Qirin Love in May.

And the proud parent gushed over how magical his little boy is in a new Twitter post.

“A mythical 1/2 dragon 1/2 lion who glides above the land so as not to harm even a blade of grass... meet Qirin Love! (sic),” he tweeted, attaching a sweet picture of himself having a nap with the infant.

Terrence and Mira chose the unusual moniker for their tot because it comes from the qilin – a mythical Chinese creature said to appear at times of serenity.

Terrence has previously enthused about Qirin, claiming the child elevated the mood in his household almost instantly.

"He's beautiful and strong and a whirlwind and my wife is so happy," he told Access Hollywood.

Terrence also noted in the interview the couple are doing their best to share domestic duties now that Qirin has arrived.

However, she has one advantage over him he can’t even dream of matching.

"She has to be up with him all throughout the day. I wasn't born with boobs, I've started growing some recently,” he said of Mira’s breastfeeding.

Terrence and Miranda married in late 2013, after dating for around a month according to reports.

The nuptials came just two months after Terrence’s second wife Michelle Ghent obtained a permanent restraining order against him in September alleging he abused her.

Terrence previously married and divorced his first wife Lori McCommas twice before permanently ending their 20-year relationship in 2007.

The pair are parents to children Aubrey, 21, Hunter, 19, and Heaven, 17, together.
