HipHollywood has confirmed that director Tyler Perry will become a father. The Madea star is expecting a child with his girlfriend, Gelila Bekele. As for the sex of that child, Perry let that slip during an interview with Extra.
Asked what sort of father he’d be, Tyler answered, “The greatest gift I’m being given right now is the opportunity to give the little boy in me everything I never had, so that’s what I’m excited about. This beautiful human being that God has allowed to come into my life for me to get to know, because they come with their own personalities, who they are, to shepherd and usher him.”
Realizing he used the word “him,” the director stopped dead in his tracks before realizing the cat was already out of the bag. “I said ‘him,'” he embarrassingly uttered.
Congrats on the boy, Tyler.
