Tyler Perry, the father of a mutli-billion dollar production company, now might now be a fathering a human being.

According to gossip site Bossip, the Atlanta resident revealed to friends and family during his 45th birthday celebration over the weekend that he is going to be a dad. It was not made clear as to who the baby’s mother is, but we do know that Perry’s on-again, off-again model girlfriend of five years, Gelila Bekele is expecting.

Gelila’s friend, Pietro Mourao confirmed that the model was pregnant in an Instagram post (that’s since been deleted) five weeks ago.

It’s no secret that entertainment mogul has longed to be a dad. During an interview with Steve Harvey back in April 2013, he explained that the one thing he has not yet accomplished was fatherhood. “I know I would be a great father. I don’t want to work this hard. I don’t want to have all of this and not leave it to my children,” Tyler said.

He added, “I also know that as hard as I’m working, doing twenty hours per day, now is not the time. Right now I’m enjoying what I’m doing. I’m enjoying the work. I’m enjoying being a bachelor, so eventually I’ll get there.”

It looks like he is finally made it.

Calls to Perry’s reps were not returned.

Could There Be A “Black Panther” and “Luke Cage” Crossover In The Works?



With all the hype over Black Panther (and it breaking box office records) fans are craving more of the Marvel superhero and crafting ways to intertwine him across the MCU. One theory is to have T’Challa and Luke Cage on screen together for an epic crossover episode during Cage’s sophomore season on Netflix.

The idea isn’t farfetched to Luke Cage star Simone Missick.

“I would love that,” Missick who plays Misty Knight told HipHollywood. “I mean doesn’t Black Panther come to New York, Misty Knight could travel to Wakanda. Maybe she takes a vacation and winds up in Wakanda.”

But while Missick was only speaking hypothetically, she said LC showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker and BP director Ryan Coogler are good pals so it’s not out of the question. “They already know each other. Cheo is working on Creed 2 writing the script and that was Ryan’s movie, so that would be awesome.”

Meanwhile when asked about a Black Panther and Luke Cage meeting on screen, Coker was enthusiastic. “I would love that, I really would!,” he told “I mean, because it would be, like, OK. T’Challa could definitely get on Pop’s free haircut list.”

In an interview with BET, Coogler was asked about three MCU characters coming together – Blade, T’Challa, and Luke Cage.

“I don’t control that stuff. I know that stuff’s all complicated. I wish Kevin [Feige] was here to see if you could talk to him, because he knows more about it. But I think it would be awesome. I loved those characters. [Blade] paved the way for what we’re doing now…And what Cheo [Hodari Coker] is doing with Netflix is just incredible, putting African-American culture on the screen like that and seeing people react to it that aren’t from that culture…the same way they react to a black basketball player or a black musician. It works for film, too. It’s universal.”
