Just over one month after welcoming son Hero, Terrence Howard and wife Mira Pak are opening up about the inspiration behind their child’s unique name.
“We thought we were having a girl first,” Pak told E! News Sunday on the Emmys red carpet, revealing that they decided to keep the name when their son was born.
But despite being surprised with a baby boy, Howard said the meaning behind the name Hero far surpasses gender.
“We wanted to give our children names that they can live up to,” he explained.
