The man's an actor, director, screenwriter, playwright, producer, author, songwriter, and now, soon-to-be father
Tyler Perry has finally confirmed the big, big news: He and his girlfriend, model Gelila Bekele, are expecting their very first child
together. The intensely private star was able to keep the secret for many
as it has been confirmed Bekele is already seven
whole months along. Her expected due date is around the end of the year. So much excitement!
"They are overjoyed and really, really happy," a source tells Us Weekly of the mood of Tyler Perry and his model girlfriend. "He was so happy in the moment so he told the guests," the insider says of the private star, who broke the news in front of 100 family members and close friends, including
Jazmine Sullivan, and
LeAnn Rimes at his 45th birthday party in Atlanta. A celebration-worthy occasion indeed!
Perry himself is best known for his work in his famed Madea
franchise, and most recently, as the creator of several shows for Oprah Winfrey's OWN network, most notably including "For Better or Worse" and "The Haves and the Have Nots."
