Is tyler perry dating anyone Adult chat boards
The multitalented actor-director is expecting his first child with on-again, off-again girlfriend Gelila Bekele.
"He said he had to start getting used to not getting a lot of sleep, because his life was about to change in a big way," a guest at Perry's 45th birthday bash in Los Angeles told E!
The couple has been together since 2009 and have one child together, a son named Aman.
The same year that the couple got together, Perry's mother Willie Maxine Perry died at the age of 64.
It's unclear whether she was in attendance at his birthday party, but a slew of celebrity guests celebrated with him."I had never thrown myself a birthday party, so for my 45th I wanted to do something special," he wrote on Facebook. A celebration in thanks to God for my life." The "For Better or Worse" creator is probably thanking God for the blessing of Bekele's pregnancy as he previously indicated that he wanted to be a father."Jennifer Holliday, Desiree Coleman Jackson, Tevin Campbell, Ledisi, Monica, Jazmine Sullivan, Tamia, Mary Mary, Le Ann Rimes, Yolanda Adams, Rachelle Ferrell and Stevie Wonder brought the house down," Perry added. Thanks to all of them for making this night special for me. "I know I would be a great father," he told Steve Harvey in a 2013 interview. "I don't want to work this hard, I don't want to have all of this and not leave it to my children. A rep for Perry has yet to respond to the Daily News' request for comment. I also know, that as hard as I'm working — doing 20 hours a day — now is not the time." What a difference a year makes.
