They celebrated the birth of their first child together back in June, so the news that this couple has divorced has come as a major shock today.


Empire actor Terrence Howard and his third wife, Mira Pak, have confirmed their split after two years of marriage.


The couple, who welcomed son Qirin Love back in June, reportedly filed for divorce on July 27th.


The New York Daily News obtained legal documents in which it was stated that the couple began divorce proceedings back in March, while Pak was pregnant.


In the papers, Pak claimed that she and Howard had been living separately since August 2014.



News of the couple’s split only entered the public forum yesterday, when it was referred to during the closing arguments of a hearing involving Howard’s second wife, Michelle Ghent. During this week’s court proceedings, Howard continuously referred to Pak as his “ex-wife”.


Howard and Pak gave nothing of their relationship status away when speaking about the birth of son Qirin.



Confirming the birth to People at the time, Howard said: “He’s beautiful and strong and a whirlwind, and my wife is so happy.”


Howard is also father to 21-year-old Aubrey, 19-year-old Hunter, and 17-year-old Heaven; his children from his first marriage.
