How exciting! Michael Ealy is a two-time dad, and we could NOT be more thrilled for him & and his wife Khatira Rafiqzada! Even better, the ‘Secrets And Lies’ actor welcomed a baby GIRL — making his 2-year-old son Elijah a big brother. Read his touching words on fatherhood here!
Surprise! Michael Ealy, 43, is a new dad! The actor let the big news slip while making an appearance on the Steve Harvey Show on Nov. 9. He revealed that he recently welcomed a baby girl with wife Khatira Rafiqzada, and he was completely beaming when he spilled the beans! And while it’s currently unclear when the precious newborn made her arrival, there’s no doubt Michael is beyond psyched about being a two-time father.
“I just discovered a whole new love,” the Secrets And Lies actor told host Steve Harvey, 59. “I’ve never ever felt this way before. I was wondering if I could love another child as much as I love my son. And what I realized, within hours of my daughter being born, not only do I love her just as much if not more.”
Michael and Khatira, who have been married for four years, also share a 2-year-old son named Elijah. “It’s a special kind of protective love. Within two hours, I understood your emotions at your daughter’s wedding,” the new dad continued. Aw! And just when we thought we couldn’t love Michael anymore!
But the surprise news of his daughter’s birth is hardly the first time Michael’s dropped a bombshell on fans. In fact, the actor married his longtime girlfriend back in October 2012 in a super secretive ceremony, two months before news of their nuptials broke.
And two years later, Michael announced his wife had given birth to a baby boy! So it looks like we may never get to see a pic of his baby girl, but nonetheless, we could not be happier for the sweet couple! Congrats again, you two!
