Actor Michael Ealy enjoyed a picnic in the park with his family on Saturday. The 44-year-old Being Mary Jane star was spotted playing with his 11-month-old daughter and 4-year-old son, Elijah.
Ealy and his wife of five years, Khatira Rafiqzada, keep their personal life very private. He waited months to announce their marriage in 2012, and he didn't announce the November 2016 birth of their daughter until January 2017.
Ealy gushed about his only daughter to TV mogul Steve Harvey. Most parents have a favorite child and it's clear which child holds the key to daddy's heart.
"I just discovered a whole new love. I've never ever felt this way before. I was wondering if I could love another child as much as I love my son. And what I realized, within hours of my daughter being born, not only do I love her just as much if not more," he said.
Ealy will soon be out of a job when the long-running feminist TV drama Being Mary Jane wraps with a 2-hour movie special in 2018. But with his stellar acting skills he won't be unemployed for long.
Back in February, Ealy posted a rare Instagram.com photo of his Afghan-American wife to protest President Trump's Muslim Ban. He captioned the image simply #NoMuslimBan.
