In the very interview, he revealed that the duo has a son named Elijah Rakim. Talking about his son, he stated that he had a wonderful father’s day with Elijah. Furthermore, he said-
“It was awesome. I had just gotten back in town from the road and my wife went to go get her hair done or something like that because we had a date night that night, so it was just me and him. We went and ran some errands and took him to CVS and got him some swim diapers and stuff.”
Michael also shared that he loves keeping his life private. Talking about maintaining privacy in his personal life, he said-
“It’s not really that hard, I don’t live my life in that way. I don’t live my life in a social way. I don’t put everything out on social media. I don’t live that reality lifestyle. At the same time, I’ve always been private, ever since I was in high school. Like, people think, ‘Oh, you’re in Hollywood, you like to…’ I’m like, ‘No, no.’ If you knew me in high school, you knew. I learned then, if you want something to work, if it means that much to you, keep it to yourself.”
Likewise, on the Steve Harvey Show in November 2016, Michael officially revealed the welcoming of a baby girl with his wife, Khatira. The talented actor also talked about fatherhood with Steve Harry, where he said-
"I just discovered a whole new love. I've never ever felt this way before. 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, not only do I love her just as much if not more.”
The father of two even talked about how emotional one got when thinking about his daughter’s wedding and compared it with the emotions of parents whose children are about to walk down the aisle. He said-
"It's a special kind of protective love. Within two hours, I understood your emotions at your daughter's wedding." As if we needed another reason to be utterly in love with this guy... It was this little girl who I had promised to always take care of, no matter what happened... I didn't want to let her go. And I gave her to the dude. And at the father-daughter dance, I was bent, man. It's a crazy moment. You're going to have that moment."
He also took his Instagram to reveal the birth of his second child and shared an image where he was seen holding his daughter’s feet.
