Contrary to this past Sunday’s Hallmark holiday, Father’s Day is a daily affair for families worldwide. That’s evidenced by shots online from famous + everyday dads alike. The latest papa bear to get in on the paternal selfie fest is Empire‘s Terrence Howard who recently debuted his newborn son via Twitter. Not only is this father-son duo totally adorable, but his name is one of the most creative baby names we’ve ever seen. Head’s up, Cookie, you’ve got some major competition for that Empire Records title, girl.
While Terrence’s wife Miranda gave birth to his fourth child and their first together Qirin Love in May, the actor didn’t introduce his son to the Internet world until this past weekend. Along with a snuggled up photo of the two he captioned the shot, “A mythical 1/2 dragon 1/2 lion who glides above the lands so as not to harm even a blade of grass… meet Qirin Love!” Umm, we’re completely obsessed with the description of this baby name.
Not only does Qirin’s name (pronounced like Kieran) sound cool, it’s also super unique. According to Nameberry, it was created by his parents with inspo from the Chinese mythological creature Qilin, who is a good omen predicting the arrival of a sage or ruler. Like we said, this little guy may be coming for that Empire Records crown sooner than you think ;)
