The Atlanta star, came live in a GQ interview with actress Michaela Coel, on Tuesday, and revealed that he welcomed a son during the corona virus pandemic and named him Donald, after his late dad. His dad, Donald Glover Sr., passed away in 2018.
This is the third son of the actor with his partner Michelle.
“You know, I had [a kid] during the coronavirus,” he told Coel, before explaining that the birth came amid nationwide protests over George Floyd’s death.
“Yeah, it was nuts,” Glover continued. “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.”
“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,” he explained. “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.”
In the same interview, Glover mentioned that he is looking forward to having more kids in the future. When Coel, revealed that she’s freezing her eggs, the new dad replied, “That’s great. I feel like it’s gonna become more and more [common]. Because I’ve actually had that thing where I’m like, ‘Maybe I should just get a vasectomy and just freeze those assets.'”
“Because adopting kids, my family adopting kids … And we actually have been talking about [it], because we have three boys so I’m like, ‘Oh, it might be nice to be get a girl in there,’ ” he continued. “So I think all those are great options. But it is hard.”
