Donald Glover Welcomes Second Child With Girlfriend Michelle
It’s early in 2018 and Donald Glover is already having a banner year. The Atlanta star and his girlfriend Michelle welcomed their second child reports Entertainment Tonight.
Glover, who is also known as Childish Gambino, revealed the baby news at FX’s Television Critics Association’s event on Friday (Jan. 5). “She great. She’s good. Baby’s born, so she’s happier now,” he told the outlet.
Glover initially announced the birth of their baby during his acceptance speech at the 2017 Emmy Awards, after winning best actor in a comedy series. “I want to thank my baby, my son, for just being the joy in my life,” he said. “I want to thank my unborn son, we’re listening to Stevie tonight.”
This is the couple's second child; they welcomed their first son, named Legend, in 2016.
In addition to revealing the baby news, Glover also announced that his FX series, Atlanta, will finally return in March under a new title called Atlanta: Robbin’ Season. The second season's 11-episode run will premiere on March 1 at 10PM ET.
“We didn’t look back at Season 1 for inspiration,” said Glover about Season Two's story arc (via Adweek). “If you do that, you tend to be risk-averse, which is really bad for us.”
“We didn’t come into it like, 'how do we beat last season?' We said, 'how do we make another show we’d want to watch?'" he continued. “What we liked about the first season is we looked at it as just 30 minutes on television. We had 30 minutes to just do whatever we wanted.”
Congrats to Donald Glover and Michelle on their bundle of joy.
