Tyler Perry is a dad!
The entertainment mogul’s longtime girlfriend, Gelila Bekele, gave birth to their first child, a son named Aman, last Sunday.
“Everyone is doing great,They are so happy.” said a source
Perry’s been known to wear many hats in Hollywood, from director to actor and even producer, but now he’s taking on the role of proud dad for the very first time.
“We’re very excited about it, very excited,” Perry told E! News earlier when asked about his girlfriends pregnancy at the New York premiere of “Gone Girl”.
The 45-year-old also accidentally revealed his child’s sex during an interview earlier this year.
When asked what kind of father he hopes to be, Perry responded, “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 stopped, laughed and exclaimed, “I said ‘him!'” Perry paused for a moment before clarifying, “…into whatever the child is supposed to be is what I’m going to do.”
“I’m on a natural high right now and I don’t think I’m coming down anytime soon,Life is incredible. Wow. The love of my life has finally arrived… Auntie is the best title I’ve ever been given.” a close friend of Perrys girlfriend tweeted
Congratulations to the happy family!
