Tyler Perry Expecting His First Child This Year [Confirmed]

Tyler Perry Expecting His First Child This Year [Confirmed]

Tyler Perry has accomplished many things, and he will be crossing one more life goal off of his list. Fatherhood! Are we surprised? To say yes would be an understatement…

According to Bossip, the media mogul was celebrating his 45th birthday with friends over the weekend when he revealed the news that he was going to be a daddy. Though he didn’t share who the baby’s mother was, it’s believed to be his on-again, off-again girlfriend of the last five years, model/activist Gelila Bekele.

Gelila is pregnant. The news was confirmed by a friend of hers that posted a photo with the beauty a month ago and captioned it: ‘Love Is In The Air’ before revealing in the comments:

She is a good New friend from NYC and she is 7 months pregnant baby boy

Coincidentally, last year, Tyler revealed that the one thing he hasn’t accomplished yet, and wishes to accomplish by age 45, was fatherhood.

More than anything I think that it’s fatherhood. I know I would be a great father. I don’t want to work this hard. I don’t want to have all of this and not leave it to my children. I also know that as hard as I’m working, doing twenty hours per day, now is not the time. Right now I’m enjoying what I’m doing. I’m enjoying the work. I’m enjoying being a bachelor, so eventually I’ll get there.

[…]

Listen, I’m 43, so two more years. By 45 you know who the hell you are, right? You’ve really settled in at 45 so I think two more years.

Spoke it right into existence!

Congrats from the entire kontrol family!!
