Howard's surprise engagement to Pak is far from the first time his love life has raised some serious eyebrows. But his relationship with Pak is full of enough questionable aspects on its own. 

Who is Mira Pak? Here are some details about Terrence Howard's ex-wife and their second engagement.

1. Pak used to be a model.

She attended New York University before becoming a model. Pak has also dipped into the entertainment world a little, in which she professionally used her husband's last name.

2. Pak owns a restaurant.

Pak left her modeling days behind and went into the restaurant business. She's the owner of Shabu Shabu Bar, a restaurant in Santa Ana, California.

A staff member at Pak's restaurant reportedly commented on her relationship with Howard when they first got married, stating that Pak's co-workers didn't even know that she had been seeing Howard. "It's all a bit crazy this thing with Terrence," the source said. "We didn't have a clue that she was even dating him, then we all heard that she'd married him, and now we don't know where she is."

3. Howard and Pak have already been married and divorced.

This will be the couple's second go at marriage. They were first married in October 2013 in Canada but divorced just two years later.

Their separation was very quiet. Pak was still pregnant with the couple's child when she filed for divorce in March 2015. She cited irreconcilable differences in the divorce paperwork and revealed that the couple had actually been separated since August 2014. 

4. They have two kids together.

5. Howard and Pak got engaged again in December 2018.

The actor shared the news through Instagram that he would be getting married to Pak once again. He proposed to her at the restaurant Crustacean Beverly Hills. 

In his video, Howard is heard giving a toast to his new fiancee. “We have an idea of how long we think life is, but we do know how short it can be,” he said. “It took me 45 years to find you. It took me 45 years to find you. But now that I have you in my 50th year, I will spend the rest of eternity at your side. And I pray that everybody finds that one that will complete them for all eternity because it means everything. I love you.” 

The engagement probably didn't come as a complete shock to fans, since the couple had actually started their relationship back up again in September of this 2018. A source reportedly confirmed to US Weekly that Howard and Pak were dating again. According to the source, “They’re tighter than ever. They’re happy. They are living in Chicago. The show [Empire] is going well, and they have two beautiful little boys.” 

The actor himself even seemingly verified the relationship, after mentioning his "wife" at the Empire premiere for the show's new season in September. “I come home to my wife.” Howard had reportedly said.
