Tyler Perry Tells Steve Harvey That He Wants To Be A Dad More Than Anything

Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor writer, director and producer, Tyler Perry recently paid a visit to The Steve Harvey Show. During his visit, Steve and Tyler discussed his many accolades and accomplishments as well as plans for the future. When asked what he hasn’t accomplished yet, but hopes to accomplish in the near future, Tyler revealed that he’s just about ready to be a father.

“More than anything I think that it’s fatherhood. I know I would be a great father. I don’t want to work this hard. I don’t want to have all of this and not leave it to my children,” Tyler expressed as the audience smiled and offered approving nods.

He also said that he realizes his current schedule would probably make parenting difficult.

“I also know that as hard as I’m working, doing twenty hours per day, now is not the time. Right now I’m enjoying what I’m doing. I’m enjoying the work. I’m enjoying being a bachelor, so eventually I’ll get there,” he continued.

You can probably guess that tell-it-like-it-is Steve wasn’t going to let him off the hook that easily. He humorously reminded Tyler that he’s not some young cat in his twenties with a whole lot of time to waste.

“Now, we done talked about this before. You don’t got all this time you keep thinking you got,” Steve said.

“Listen, I’m 43, so two more years. By 45 you know who the hell you are, right? You’ve really settled in at 45 so I think two more years,” Tyler said, attempting to bargain with big brother Steve.

Of course, Steve continued to poke fun at him.

“When the boy is 15 and you 60…” Steve said before looking at the floor, allowing his words to settle.

“I’ll hire someone to take him to the basketball court. That’s what I’ll have to do,” Tyler responded before the two shared in what appeared to be a good laugh.

      I don’t think he has to tell us but stop acting you’re so str8 like in your life. Really… kids? I call BS!

  • FromUR2UB

    I know a lot of people really don’t do it this way anymore, but I hope that when he has children, he’ll be married to the children’s mother. I think it still means something, if you have children with someone you once loved enough to marry, even if the marriage doesn’t last a lifetime.

    Then adopt. Dude makes countless movies about infidelity but desires farherhood. Hey even a dog or cat may give you that fuzzy feeling without being another divorce statistic.

    A earlier post on the link took the words right out ma mouth; hope it ain’t a daughter he want! I didn’t agree he had issues w/ women until I saw his latest movie yesterday…boy, boy, boy, boy, BOY! That rape-tastic scene on the airplane had me ready to walk out, not even going to get into the quality of the film… o.O

  • He would actually have to sleep with a woman to have kids . . . . . well there are surrogates.
