Donald Glover reveals he welcomed third child amid pandemic
Donald Glover is now a father of three as he revealed that he welcomed his third child with partner Michelle White amid the pandemic.
The “Atlanta” star, also known as the musician Childish Gambino, shared the good news in an exclusive interview with GQ published on Sept. 29.
“You know, I had [a kid] during the coronavirus,” he was quoted as telling his co-interviewee, Michaela Coel.
He also recalled how the birth of his third child was “such a weird moment” as they welcomed him amid the protests after George Floyd’s death.
“Yeah, it was nuts. I was in the hospital bed. My son had just been born, like, an hour before and I was watching the George Floyd video. It was such a weird moment,” Glover was quoted as saying.
He also noted that he named his newborn son after his late father, Donald Glover Sr., who passed away in 2018.
“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, plus my dad had passed away recently, so [my son] was named after my father,” the “Community” star was quoted as saying.
“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,” he added.
