Last week it was confirmed that actor/producer/director Tyler Perry was expecting his firs child with his on again, off again girlfriend model Gelila Bekele. The news was confirmed by a friend of Gelila who posted a photo of her on Insgatram and revealed the news in the comment section.
Tyler Perry also confirmed the news and accidently revealed the sex of his unborn child during an interview with Extra TV. When asked what type of father he hopes to be he stated:
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…
After realizing what he had just said the actor/director imediatelly stop and stated: “I said ‘him, Oops.” He then tried to clean up his comments by saying “whatever the child is supposed to be is what I’m going to do.”
Congrats to Tyler and Gelila!
