Congratulations are in order for Tyler Perry. PEOPLE confirms that Perry and his long-time girlfriend Gelila Bekele welcomed a son, Aman Tyler Perry, on Sunday. “Mom and baby are happy and healthy. Tyler is so excited,” a source told PEOPLE. Perry and Bekele reportedly sent out a birth announcement to family and friends asking them to donate to Charity Water in lieu of gifts. The 45-year-old media mogul told Extra that becoming a father is “the greatest gift I’m being given right now” and that it’s his opportunity “to give the little boy in me everything I never had.” “He will make a wonderful father,” another source told PEOPLE. “You will never find a more loving, patient, honorable or decent man than Tyler Perry. Any child would be blessed to have him as a father.” Congratulations to you and your family, Tyler Perry!
