Surprise: Terrence Howard is officially a single man!

The 46-year-old Empire star quietly got divorced from ex-wife Mira Howard over the summer.

According to legal docs obtained by the New York Daily News, Mira filed for divorce back in March while she was still pregnant with their first child together. Mira cited irreconcilable differences and also noted that she and Howard hadn't lived together in over six months. The certificate of dissolution of the former couple's marriage was filed on July 27, although news of the divorce didn't break until today.

Mira was Howard's third wife.

Amid the split, Terrence and Mira welcomed a son in mid-June. The baby boy, whom they named Qirin Love, got his unique moniker from the qilin, a mythic Chinese creature, which is believed to be a good omen signifying prosperity or sincerity.

"He's beautiful and strong and a whirlwind and my wife is so happy," Howard, who is a father of four all together, told Access Hollywood after Qirin's birth.

Howard is also still involved in a very public legal battle with his second wife, Michelle Ghent.
