Surprise! Michael Ealy is a dad for the second time.
While appearing on "The Steve Harvey Show" on Nov. 9, the "Secrets and Lies" star acknowledged that he and his wife recently welcomed a baby girl, shocking many people who didn't know that they were even expecting.
In April, several blogs speculated that Michael's wife, Khatira Rafiqzada, was pregnant, but no one ever confirmed it.
It's the second child for the couple, who share a 4-year-old son.
The "Think Like a Man too" actor beamed as he spoke to the daytime host about the newest addition to the family.
"I just discovered a whole new love and I've never ever, ever felt this way before," he said. "I was wondering if I could love another child as much as I love my son, and what I realized within hours of my daughter being born was that not only do I love her just as much if not more, it's a special kind of protective love."
The actor said he was scared of the day when his daughter grows up and gets married, because he anticipates being an emotional wreck.
Steve joked that "along the way, you're going to have to kill a couple boys," referring to her dating life.
"I played some dangerous characters," Michael joked, leading Steve to say, "So you ain't got no problems, they talking — you under the bed."
Michael and his wife are certainly incredible at keeping secrets. It was on "The Steve Harvey Show" in 2014, when he casually mentioned that they had a son that no one knew about.
"I never understand why people announce the birth of their children," he said.
Furthermore, the duo's marriage was also a surprise as they got married in a private ceremony in October 2012 after four years of dating.
