Atlanta-based actor/filmmaker Tyler Perry is a new dad – his longtime girlfriend Gelila Bekele has given birth to the couple’s son.
Little Aman Tyler Perry was born on Sunday, according to multiple sources.
Baby rumors began surrounding the couple when Perry reportedly revealed he and Gelila Bekele, are expecting a baby during his 45th birthday party at his home in Atlanta, Georgia earlier this month. Perry shared photos from his big bash on his Instagram page and he thanked his famous friends for making it a night to remember.
The 45-year-old entertainment mogul confirmed he was set to become a first-time dad in September, stating, “We’re very excited about it, very happy. Mommy’s happy, I’m happy. It’s an exciting time.”
He added, “I get an opportunity to share all the love and joy that I never had growing up from my father; I get to share with this beautiful bundle of joy. So I can’t even tell you how excited I am.”
