Last week, Tyler Perry turned 45 and celebrated his birthday by throwing himself a star-studded birthday bash that included Stevie Wonder playing the piano. Though that was a highlight of the night, apparently, the most memorable moment came when Perry announced that he’s expecting his first child. An exclusive source who attended the party told our sister site Bossip that Perry didn’t reveal who the mother of the child is, but sources believe it’s Gelila Bekele, a 28-year-old Ethiopian model and philanthropist who openly dated Perry on and off for the past five years.
Let me say, several things ran through my head when I read this. Perry’s work always has such strong Christian themes as the backdrop, so I wondered did he get married and I missed the news? Perhaps.
But I think the more likely answer is that Tyler;s probably going to adopt or have a child through some type of surrogacy situation.
And if I had to guess, I’d assume that Bekele is not the mother of this child.
But I’m sure there will be plenty of updates about this one.
