Rumor has it Tyler Perry may be a father. Reportedly, the actor/producer/director is quietly expecting a child with his girlfriend, Gelila Bekele. The two have been romantically linked since 2011. According to Bossip,
The entertainment mogul just revealed he’s expecting his first child during his 45th birthday party last week. While he did not reveal who the mother is, sources close to Perry believe that it’s likely model/philanthropist Gelila Bekele is the mom to be. She and Perry have been linked off and on for the last five years or so.
On Monday, Tyler threw himself a lavish 45th birthday party and posted a few photos on Instagram.
We’ve checked Tyler and Gelila’s social media and neither have hinted at the pregnancy. In fact, according to Gelila’s Instagram, on the day of Perry’s birthday party, she was at the United Nations. Nonetheless, we’ll keep our eyes open.
