“You’ve been married for about a year now, right?” Harvey asked Ealy during a segment about the movie. “You see kids in the future?”

“We have a son,” replied Ealy, adding that the boy’s name is Elijah. Co-star Regina Hall shared that Elijah is a “beautiful little boy.”

The famously private actor—who didn’t mention his son’s age—added that he couldn’t understand why “people announce the birth of their children.”

Ealy and Rafiqzada had been together for almost four years when they secretly tied the knot in October 2012.

Congrats to Michael and Khatira!
