Donald Glover celebrated his two Golden Globe wins on Sunday night by revealing the sex of his baby during his second speech of the evening, when he accepted the award for Best Actor in a Comedy Series for his leading turn in Atlanta.
“I grew up in a house where magic wasn’t allowed, so everybody in here is magical to me, like every time I saw a movie or a Disney movie or heard your voices or saw you, I was like, ‘Oh, it’s from people,’” Glover began his speech. “We’re the ones who, in a weird way, tell a story or a lie to children, so they do stuff that we never thought was possible.”
“My dad used to tell me every day you can do anything you want and I remembered thinking as a kid in first grade, ‘You’re lying to me.’ But now I do stuff and he’s like, ‘I didn’t think that was possible,’” he said to chuckles from the audience.
The 33-year-old Atlanta creator went on to thank his immediate family, and it was then that he revealed the sex of his newborn baby -- a boy -- whom he and his girlfriend welcomed in early 2016.
“I really want to say thank you to my son and the mother of my son for making me believe in people again and things being possible, so thank you,” Glover closed his speech, dropping the news in the stealthiest way possible.
Earlier in the night, Glover had a more lighthearted moment onstage when he accepted the award for Best Comedy Series.
“I really want to thank Atlanta, and black folks in Atlanta, for real -- just for being alive and doing just amazing and being amazing people,” he said. “I couldn’t be here without Atlanta and I really want to thank The Migos, not for being in the show but for making ‘Bad and Boujee.’ That’s the best song ever.”
