Michael B. Jordan, 34, is taking “time” before having kids, but when he does, he will make sure they have “their own identity.” The actor sat down for a new interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and discussed a name tradition in his family as well as what he plans for his own kids someday.
After the talk show host revealed that his father’s name is “Michael A. Jordan” and his is “Michael B. Jordan”, she asked if his future child will be “Michael C. Jordan.” “I am breaking that circle right there,” he said as the audience laughed. “It’s too much. The pressure I had to live up to my dad’s name and I’m not gonna put that on my kid.”
“I’m gonna give him his own identity,” he sweetly added. “He’s gotta walk in his own shoes.” Michael B. Jordan’s comments come in the midst of his relationship with Lori Harvey, 24. The lovebirds have been dating since last year and went public with the romance on Instagram in Jan.
Since then, they’ve been spotted going on various date nights and showing off PDA some of the time. Michael B. Jordan also recently opened up about why he decided to confirm the relationship to the public. “I am extremely happy,” he told People.
