Tyrese And Wife Samantha Gibson Expecting A Baby Girl…For Real This Time
Tyrese and his wife Samantha Gibson are expecting…for real this time. You may remember that last November Gibson told the world that his wife was pregnant only to retract the news later. Gibson blamed his psych meds on the lies he told not only about his wife’s pregnancy but about Will and Jada giving him $5 million.
But five months after that…saga, the couple has made another announcement to PEOPLE. In a joint interview, Tyrese said, “Both of our love and energy and magic and families are bonded forever because we’re going to have this child. It’s unbelievable.”
Samantha, a 29-year-old social worker, learned that she was expecting a daughter in late January, shortly after they started trying to conceive. Minutes after she learned of the news, Tyrese came home and the two celebrated together.
“It was me screaming and just being overly excited and just fired up about the news,” Tyrese says.
The baby is a welcome addition to the couple who went through private struggles publicly last year with Tyrese fighting for joint custody of his oldest daughter Shayla.
Tyrese said, “Unfortunately as entertainers and public figures, you have to go through very private matters publicly sometimes. … I’m just happy to be on the other side of it and have my daughter back home with us.”
Samantha plans to give birth in Los Angeles but raise their daughter in Georgia, the same home where they wed last Valentine’s Day.
“We were able to conceive at the right time, I believe,” Samantha says. “There was a lot that happened last year — everyone is aware of that — and so to have the opportunity to … really start a new chapter in the way that has happened, I just look to God and I’m like, ‘Wow, I can’t believe that you would plan it this way and you do it so perfectly.’ “
Congratulations to these two!
