Tyler Perry’s Girlfriend Pregnant – Couple Is Expecting First Baby

It’s official: the creative genius behind Madea is going to be a daddy!

A source close to Tyler, 45, and his girlfriend, Gelila, 28, has confirmed to HollywoodLife.com that they are, in fact, expecting their first child together. So sweet!

Apparently, Tyler recently alluded to the fact that he was expecting at his very own 45th birthday party just recently.

“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 partygoer told E! News. “He said, ‘Some of you know what I’m talking about.'”

The same report claims that Gelila is already “seven or eight months pregnant.” Wow, way to keep a secret!

Even though they managed to keep it a secret for so long, one of Gelila’s friends slipped by sharing the exciting news on Instagram not too long ago.

The photo, which unfortunately has since been deleted, was posted by Instagram user Pietro Mourao.

It featured Pietro sitting next to Gelila at a table, both of them smiling happy. In the comments, Pietro explained that Gelila was his “new friend from NYC” who was “7 months pregnant” with a “baby boy.”

Of course, someone managed to screen cap the photo and it’s comments before it was deleted, so you can see it by clicking HERE.
