Ready to take over his empire! Terrence Howard's newborn son, Qirin Love, is all kinds of adorable. The actor, who stars as record label mogul Lucious Lyon on the hit drama Empire, shared the first photo of his little one via Twitter on Friday, June 19.

"A mythical 1/2 dragon 1/2 lion who glides above the land so as not to harm even a blade of grass," Howard, 46, captioned the snapshot. "Meet Qirin Love!"

In the pic, Howard snuggles up to his son as they rest in bed. Qirin (that hair!) wears a white onesie while sleeping peacefully.

The Best Man Wedding star and his wife, Mira, welcomed Qirin in May. "He's beautiful and strong and a whirlwind and my wife is so happy," the proud dad told Access Hollywood earlier this month. "I pull night duty, so that she can sleep. I keep him with me and will take some of the pre-pumped, you know, breast cheese, whatever you want to call it."

The couple wed in November 2013. Howard already shares daughters Aubrey and Heaven and son Hunter with his first ex-wife, Lori McCommas.
