Director, producer, performer and all-around creative phenom, Tyler Perry (pictured) and his longtime lady-love, Gelila Bekele (pictured), welcomed a bouncing baby boy, Aman, on November 30 reports E! News.
An unnamed source reportedly spoke to E! News about the child’s birth and says both Perry and Bekele are over the moon about their first-born.
Perry, who typically keeps mum about the goings-on in his private life, did not utter one word publicly about Bekele’s pregnancy. Once the news leaked, Perry could not contain his excitement at the prospect of becoming a first-time dad at the age of 45. “We’re very excited about it, very excited,” he previously told E! at the New York premiere of “Gone Girl.”
Perry who is known as a humanitarian and who seemingly has a genuine affinity towards children, supports numerous youth organizations. He discussed with cable TV show “Extra” the kind of dad he hoped to be.
“The greatest gift I’m being given right now is the opportunity to give the little boy in me everything I never had, so that’s what I’m excited about. This beautiful human being that God has allowed to come into my life for me to get to know, because they come with their own personalities, who they are, to shepherd and usher him…”
He then caught the slip he made at the time about the sex of his then unborn child, laughed, then commented, “I said ‘him!’” Perry tried gathering his thoughts before explaining further, “…into whatever the child is supposed to be is what I’m going to do.”
Tyler and Gelila, congratulations on the newest and brightest star in your lives!
