And baby makes five kids for Terrence Howard!

The Empire actor and his wife Mira Pak have welcomed their second child together, son Hero, a source confirms to PEOPLE.

Further details are unavailable at this time.

Howard announced the new addition’s arrival Friday on Twitter.

“Hero being held by Qirin,” Howard, 47, tweeted next to a heart emoji and a photo of his new baby being held and kissed by the couple’s older son, who is 15 months.

Howard and Pak have been married since 2013. In May, they stepped out at an event for Howard’s highly acclaimed FOX drama, with Pak’s baby bump clearly confirming she was expecting another baby.

While Hero is the second child for the couple, Howard has three children from a previous marriage: daughters Heaven and Aubrey, and son Hunter.

While the couple seem like they’ll definitely have some help in new big brother Qirin, it sounds like the Hustle & Flow star will likely be pulling his fair share of baby duty too.

“She has to be up with him all throughout the day. I wasn’t born with boobs, I’ve started growing some recently,” the actor joked in 2015 shortly after Qirin’s birth. “She has the boobage and nurses him during the day.

“So, I pull night duty, so that she can sleep and I keep him with me and will take some of the pre-pumped ‘breast cheese,’ whatever you call it.”
