While out at the premiere of Selma, new dad Tyler Perry chatted it up with The Grio’s Chris Witherspoon about how he’s adjusting to fatherhood as well as those sleepless nights that new parents know so much about.
“I wish I could say that I’m up all night, but Mommy is doing alot of work,” Tyler confessed. “She’s a great mother who just wants to be there for the baby.”
According to the 45-year-old producer and director, his girlfriend, Gelila Bekele, opted not to hire nannies to assist with their son, Aman.
“We have no nannies, we have no help. She wants to do it all. So we’re doing it all. I’m getting a little sleep, but she’s not getting any.”
As previously reported, Tyler and Gelila welcome their baby boy in November.
“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,” Tyler gushed earlier this fall. “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…”
Congrats again to the new parents!
A few months ago, we learned that “Love & Hip Hop” star Yandy Smith is expecting her second child with fiancé, Mendecees Harris. As it turns, the pair is expecting a baby girl. During a recent chat with Mara the Hip Hop Socialite, the reality star revealed that she’s already in love with one particular name that she hopes to give to her baby girl.
“I love the name Smith,” the beauty confessed, “which is my last name, but he is very big on names that have meaning. His whole family has African names that have meaning – ask me if he’s African, and I’ll tell you no. But he wants our daughter to have a name with meaning, so we’ll see what happens. I don’t know if I’m going to win the Smith battle, but all my children will be named Harris, so I just wanted to have my legacy live.”
She also discussed plans for their wedding and why things keep getting pushed back.
“Everything is going good – it’s a lot. Planning a baby shower, planning a wedding, managing companies, managing artists, shooting a TV show – it’s a lot. Dates are constantly getting changed because I’m like, ‘Oh, this event is coming up. Oh, I have this EGL thing. Oh, I have this.’ So I’m just trying to manage it all, and get this wedding stuff together. But everything, you know, the aesthetics are coming along fine, it’s just locking in the time because we both have crazy schedules. So you leave it to him, we’ll be going to the justice of the peace; we’ll be going to Vegas doing a shotgun wedding. He’s like, ‘Why do we need this Yandy? Why do we need all this stuff?’ And I’m just like, ‘It’s what I dreamed about – it’s what I want.’”
As for their relationship being under constant scrutiny, Yandy had this to say:
“It doesn’t only happen in my relationship. It happens with my hair, my outfit, my makeup, if I’m getting fat or getting too skinny. It’s just what people do. And Instagram, Twitter, all those things have allowed people to become these super gangsters behind a screen with no face and no name. So it’s just what’s to be expected in this business.”
Check out Yandy’s full interview here.
These celebrity men may or may have not been in love with a stripper but that certainly had a baby with one.
Indiana Pacers star Paul George is a man of few words and chooses to let his style of play do the talking. But off the court, his personal life was overshadowing his performance on the hardwood floor. After he got stripper Daniela Rajic pregnant, she claimed he offered her one million dollars to have an abortion. George vehemently denied that and the two became involved in a bitter paternity dispute. Rajic accused him of being a deadbeat dad but they have finally worked out an agreement and now share full custody of their seven-month old daughter.
Just as we suspected. Yesterday, after following the social media presence of a woman close to Tyler Perry’s longtime girlfriend Gelila Bekele, blogs and news sites were able to guess that Bekele had given birth to Tyler’s son.
And all of that guess work turned out to be right.
Now, that the cat is out of the bag, a source close to the couple told E! News, that not only did the couple welcome a son on Sunday, November 30, this person also revealed the name.
The boy’s name is Aman Tyler Perry.
According to People, “Aman means peace and represents ‘the true meaning of Thanksgiving and then, of course, the holiday season.'”
The source also said: “Everyone is doing great. They are so happy.”
Earlier this fall, when he was promoting the film Gone Girl, Perry accidentally told E! that he was having a boy and the dreams he had for his soon-to-be born child.
“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.”
Official congratulations to Tyler and Gelila on their new bundle of joy!
When news broke that Tyler Perry was expecting a son, there were all types of reactions. But after we all settled down, we wondered when the baby would be born and whether or not we’d get to see him or her. (Later, Tyler confirmed it was a him.) I mean, we assumed we wouldn’t get to see the baby; but we’re nosy, so we can only hope.
And while there aren’t any concrete pictures of Perry’s new baby boy, the social media presence from close friends seemed to confirm that Tyler’s son is indeed here. If you remember it was a friend who leaked the news that Tyler’s longtime girlfriend, Gelila Bekele was indeed carrying his child.
And this time, a woman who Gelila called her sister, on an Instagram picture months ago, seemed to announce the arrival of the baby boy.
Check out her tweets.
I know you’re probably thinking ‘She could be talking about anybody’s baby.’ And that’s true…but this woman was with Gelila on Thanksgiving.
And in September, when Gelila’s friend announced that she was pregnant, he mentioned that she was 7 months, which would make late November a plausible due date. So I’m willing to bet yes. But only time will tell. We’ll be sure to keep you posted when there’s official confirmation and hopefully, baby pictures.
It’s been a long and messy road since news first leaked that Paul George may have fathered a child with former exotic dancer Daniela Rajic. There have been rumors that George offered Rajic $1 million to terminate her pregnancy—something the Indiana Pacers star’s reps vehemently deny. Then, there was that time that a New York City judge blasted the 24-year-old and accused him of being a deadbeat dad. And of course, there’s that nasty paternity dispute. Thankfully, according to the professional baller’s attorney Harriet Newman Cohen, drama is a thing of the past and George is now focused on being a father to 7-month-old Olivia. The new parents recently reached a “joint parenting agreement,” which grants them full joint custody.
“They have reached a settlement with full joint custody and a financial package,” Cohen told Page Six. “They will be raising their daughter together. Paul George had always intended to do the right thing, and he is thrilled to have a daughter. The settlement is generous, the child is going to have a wonderful life, and both parents will be equally involved in bringing her up.”
Rajic’s attorney also addressed the agreement and while he would not discuss the terms, he seems to be a happy camper.
“If this was baseball, they would say he stepped up to the plate,” Raoul Felder told reporters.
Rajic intends to relocate from her family’s home in Queens to a new house in a different area of New York that will allow the star to regularly visit their baby girl.
“We are both very grateful for the opportunity to be joint parents to our beautiful daughter Olivia,” the co-parents said in a joint statement. “While we have our separate lives, we are committed to providing her with all the support, nurturing and love she deserves.”
Good for them!
