*The Fox series “Empire” won’t be the only thing new in Terrence Howard’s life in 2015.

After taking the stage to rap at Orange County hotspot AnQi on after the stroke of midnight on Jan. 1, the actor was joined on stage by the club’s owner Elizabeth An, who revealed to the crowd that the “Empire” star and his wife Miranda are expecting their first child together.

Miranda – who wed Howard in 2013 – “glowed with joy” as her husband rubbed her belly and the crowd cheered after the announcement, a witness tells People.com.

Howard is already a father to three children – Aubrey, 21, Hunter, 19, and Heaven, 17 – from his first marriage as well as grandfather to Aubrey’s 3-year-old daughter Hazel.
