Donald Glover is a proud papa! The Atlanta star and his longtime girlfriend Michelle White welcomed their third child, a baby boy. In a recent conversation with Michaela Coel for GQ Magazine, Glover revealed that his son was born during the pandemic.
“You know, I had (a kid) during the coronavirus. I was in the hospital bed,” he said.”My son had just been born, like, an hour before and I was watching the George Floyd video. It was such an intense, weird moment, because I’m watching that video and it’s like eight minutes long, so you’re sitting there and I had just had this amazing, joyful, expanding moment.”
The rapper/actor looked back on the joy and pain he felt at that moment. “I don’t even know what, really, the word is to describe it. It was just expanding: the empathy and compassion and the terror and the joy of it.”
Glover named his son after his father, Donald Glover Sr., who passed away in 2018.
The couple also have two other sons — Legend, who was born in early 2016 and Drake, born in January of 2018.
Congratulations to the happy family!
