Apparently Hollywood mogul Tyler Perry is about to be a dad.
The 45-year-old TV and filmmaker held a private birthday party at his estate in Los Angeles that featured performances by Stephanie Mills, Rachelle Ferrell, Monica, Tevin Campbell, Mary Mary, Ledisi, Desiree Coleman, Jennifer Holliday, Jazmine Sullivan, Tamia, Yolanda Adams, and Stevie Wonder.
During the invite-only shindig, Perry gave a speech to the crowd that indicated that he was expecting.
A party guest recalled to EOnline: “He had to start getting used to not getting a lot of sleep, because his life was about to change in a big way. He said, ‘Some of you know what I’m talking about.'”
Unconfirmed rumors claim that his long-time girlfriend, model Gelila Bekele is about seven months pregnant with Perry’s first child. Bekele is the second model the New Orleans-bred multimillionaire has dated. He previously dated supermodel Tyra Banks.
Perry has yet to confirm the news of him being a first-time dad and his rep has declined to comment.
However, Perry’s friend and party performer Adams posted a message on Instagram congratulating him.
“CONGRATULATIONS to my good friend @tylerperry on the Wonderful news of New Life!! GOD BLESS YALL!!” – she posted via her Instagram page @YolandaAdams.
