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.
