Tyler Perry Is Expecting His First Child


Madea's about to be a mommy daddy. Tyler Perry and his off-on girlfriend, Gelila Bekele, are expecting their first child, a source close to the actor confirms to Yahoo.

Perry shared the news with a close group of friends at his 45th birthday party two weekends ago in Atlanta, says the insider, who was in attendance.

"He is thrilled and couldn't be happier," the source says.

With George Clooney soon to be off the market, Perry is one of the most eligible bachelors left in Hollywood. The actor, who is best known for his Madea movies but will soon be starring in Gone Girl, is known for not only being a good guy, but he's also one of the wealthiest, with a net worth estimated at $400 million.

"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."
Perry has spoken repeatedly about being abused by his own father and not having a positive male influence in his life.

"I remember [my father] cornering me in a room and hitting me with this vacuum cleaner cord," he revealed to close friend Oprah Winfrey in a 2010 interview. "He would just not stop. There are all these welts on [me], the flesh that's coming from my bone, and I had to wait for him to go to sleep. … When he fell asleep, I ran to my aunt's house, and she was mortified when she saw it."
