Tyler Perry and girlfriend, Ethiopian model, Gelila Bekele are expecting their first child.  In an interview with “Extra,” Tyler spoke affectionately about the type of father he expects to be saying,

“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.”

He went on to say, “Into my life for me to get to know, because they come with their own personalities, who they are, to shepherd and usher him”

After catching himself he says, “I said ‘him, Oops.” Smiling and continuing his thought, “into whatever the child is supposed to be is what I’m going to do.”

Awww, I’m sure Tyler has a lot of wisdom to impart and he and Gelila will be excellent parents to the little-one.

Congratulations again to the happy couple!
