As actor Donald Glover rose in fame and popularity, he became even more and more private. So private that he deleted all of his social media posts except the trailer for his new FX channel TV show, Atlanta.
So, it comes as no surprise that he and his girlfriend had a baby in May and no-one knew…until now that the media randomly caught wind.
US Weekly reports that people spotted him and his mystery woman at a grocery store in Hawaii in January this year with her looking about 7 to 8 months pregnant.
In May, she was seen pushing a baby stroller. Doh!
Glover grew up as a Jehovah’s Witness in Stone Mountain, Georgia and is best known for his role at Troy on the hit NBC TV show Community, and as a comedian. He also wrote for the hit NBC TV show 30Rock for several years and has a successful rap career as his alter ego Childish Gambino.
I love his FX show which is about a Princeton University student who drops out, who life as an unemployed drifter with his ex-girlfriend and their baby and tries to become rich by managing his up and coming rapper cousin, Paper Boi.
He’s told multiple press outlets that he didn’t attempt to make a hit show when he pitched and got Atlanta greenlit.
“Atlanta is a Trojan horse,” Glover told Timemagazine in August. “The thesis was: How do we make people feel black? It turned into something more attainable than that, but that was the idea. I was like, ‘Let’s make something that shouldn’t be on the air, something controversial.’ If it’s canceled in 10 episodes, I’ll be happy with those episodes.”
Since becoming a fan of the show which Glover stars in, produces and writes, I’ve gone back to check out his stand up, music and past videos and have become obsessed fan. The boy has serious talent!
Congrats to him and his new family. We wish them all the success in the world!
