The “Atlanta” star had a conversation with “I May Destroy You” star Michaela Coel for GQ magazine and almost casually shared the news that by saying “You know I had (a child). during the coronavirus. ”
“I was in the hospital bed,” Glover said. “My son was just born, like, an hour before and I was watching the George Floyd video. It was such a strange moment. ”
He described his experience as “nuts” and went on to explain further.
“It was such an odd moment,” the Emmy-winning actor said. “It was such an intense, weird moment, because I’m watching this video and it’s eight minutes long, so you’re sitting there and I had just had this amazing, happy, expanding moment, and my dad had passed away recently, so (my son) was named after my father… I don’t even know what, really, the word is to describe him. It was just expanding: empathy and compassion and terror and joy. ”
The younger Glover has two young sons with his longtime partner Michelle White, including one named Legend who entered during his conversation with Coel.
The conversation turned to freezing eggs to have children and Glover said he thought it was something more common.
“Because I got this thing where I’m like, ‘Maybe I should just have a vasectomy and just freeze these assets,’” he says. “Because I’m adopting kids, my family is adopting kids… And we talked about it, because we have three boys, so I’m like, ‘Oh, it might be good to have a girl in there. So I think all of these options are great. But it is difficult. ”
