Tyler Perry is set to be a dad as his girlfriend, Gelila Bekele is pregnant with the couple’s first child.
Perry shared the news with a close group of friends at his 45th birthday party two weekends ago in Atlanta.
“He is thrilled and couldn’t be happier,” a source would attended the party said to Yahoo.
“I know I would be a great father,” Perry said on a 2013 episode of The Steve Harvey Show. “I don’t want to work this hard. I don’t want to have all of this and not leave it to my children.”
