Donald Glover Announces He's Expecting Second Child

The 'Atlanta' star revealed he's going to be a dad again when accepting his two Emmys at Sunday's award show.

AceShowbiz - Donald Glover is going to be a father of two soon. The 33-year-old actor/filmmaker announced that he's expecting his second child at the 69th annual Primetime Emmy Awards which was held on Sunday evening, September 17 at the Microsoft Theatre in downtown Los Angeles.

Glover took home two Emmys for his work on "Atlanta", the awards for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series. In his acceptance speech, he revealed that he and partner Michelle, whom he thanked for loving him, are expecting baby No. 2.

"I want to thank Michelle, my partner, you love me even with how crazy I get," he said at the event hosted by Stephen Colbert. "I want to thank my baby, my son, for just being the joy in my life," the actor continued, before adding, "I want to thank my unborn son - we're listening to Stevie [Wonder] tonight."

Known for being notoriously private, the "Spider-Man: Homecoming" actor, who's also a Grammy-nominated rapper under the moniker Childish Gambino, and his girlfriend welcomed their first child in early 2016. He revealed his first child is a boy in his acceptance speech at the Golden Globes earlier this year, where he won Best Actor in a Comedy Series for his leading role on "Atlanta". He revealed later at the 2017 Governors Ball Music Festival in June that his son's name is Legend.

"This song is dedicated to everybody in this crowd and my young son, Legend," Glover told the crowd before performing "Baby Boy", a track off his 2016 album "Awaken, My Love!". During his speech, he also thanked President Donald Trump for "making black people No. 1 on the most-oppressed list." The "Community" alum added, "He's the reason I'm probably up here."

Glover can next be seen in Han Solo movie as Lando Calrissian and will voice Simba in Disney's upcoming live-action "The Lion King (2019)". The untitled stand-alone Star Wars film II starring Alden Ehrenreich as young Han Solo is set for a May 25, 2018 release in the United States, while the live-action re-imagining of the 1994 classic animated film is due out the next year on July 19.
