Tyler Perry and his model girlfriend Gelila Bekele have welcomed their first child together!
The couple’s baby boy, Aman Tyler Perry, was born on Sunday, November 30.
Perry and Bekele, 28, attempted to keep their baby news a secret, but Tyler announced their happy news at his 45th birthday party in September.
An insider, “They are overjoyed and really, really happy. He was so happy in the moment so he told the guests.”
During an interview with Extra, he stated, “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”.
The name Aman means peace and represents “the true meaning of Thanksgiving and then, of course, the holiday season.”
An insider revealed that Tyler is “over the moon” over the birth of his son.
Tyler and Gelila sent out a birth announcement to family and close friends, asking that in lieu of gifts, donations be made to Charity Water, an organization dedicated to providing clean water to developing countries.
A source close to Perry said, “He will make a wonderful father. You will never find a more loving, patient, honorable or decent man than Tyler Perry. Any child would be blessed to have him as a father.”
