Celebrity Dads: Michael Ealy And Soon To Be Daddy, Omarion


Michael Ealy  is a father! The About Last Night actor, who surprised fans on the Steve Harvey Show, when he announced he has a son with his, Khatira Rafiqzada.

“You’ve been married for about a year now, right?” Harvey asked Ealy. “You see kids in the future?”

“We have a son,” replied Ealy, adding that the boy’s name is Elijah. His co-star Regina Hall shared that Elijah is a “beautiful little boy.” Ealy didn’t share any more details about Elijah, but he went on to say he couldn’t understand why “people announce the birth of their children.”

The talented  actor is known for keeping his affairs private. Ealy and his wife were  together for almost four years when they married in October 2012.

Michael Ealy is best known for his roles in Barbershop(2002), its sequel Barbershoe 2: Back in Business (2004), 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003), Their Eyes Were Watching God (2005), Seven Pounds (2008), For Colored Girls (2010), Underworld: Awakening (2012), Think Like A Man (2012), and About Last Night (2014). As his son gets older, maybe we will see him joining his father on the big screen. What do you think? Can’t wait to see if the two will pair up in movie roles in the future? That’s OK, I cannot wait either! So in the meantime I will just be watching some of my favorite movies like Think Like A Man (2012) and About Last Night (2014).
