Director and playwright Tyler Perry is expecting a child. Mr. Perry reportedly made the happy announcement during his 45th birthday party last week.
Tyler used to show up on red carpets with a 28-year-old Ethiopian named Gelila Bekele. But there are virtually no photos of them together anywhere. It’s doubtful Tyler actually impregnated a female.
Madamenoire.com was more direct:
I think more likely is that he’s probably going to adopt or have a child through some type of surrogacy situation.
Other notable Hollywood men who commissioned children via a surrogate include the late Michael Jackson, blogger Perez Hilton, singer Elton John, and actor Neil Patrick Harris.
