Tyrese Gibson and his wife Samantha have a bun in the oven!
The couple revealed to People that they are expecting a baby girl after Samantha learned she was pregnant in late January.
In a rare joint interview, the couple told the publication, “Both of our love and energy and magic and families are bonded forever because we’re going to have this child. It’s unbelievable.”
Samantha learned she was pregnant not long after the couple decided to try to conceive. The mom-to-be says she didn’t even have time to plan a surprise because Tyrese arrived home moments after a pregnancy test revealed the news.
Gibson says he was “screaming” and “overly excited and just fired up” about the news. And, family and friends are just as excited. “There was no greater reaction than her mom’s reaction,” the Fast & Furious actor shared. “Samantha is her only daughter, and this has been prayers for years and years, for her to get married and find the right one and start a family.”
Gibson has one daughter, Shayla, from a previous marriage, but Samantha says there will be no sibling rivalry because Shayla’s “been asking for siblings since I’ve known her.”
Already in her second trimester, Samantha is in full mommy mode. And, despite last year’s rocky events, she’s happy that she and her hubby are starting a new chapter.
“We were able to conceive at the right time, I believe. There was a lot that happened last year — everyone is aware of that — and so to have the opportunity to … really start a new chapter in the way that has happened, I just look to God and I’m like, ‘Wow, I can’t believe that you would plan it this way and you do it so perfectly.'”
