Madea is having a baby!  Well, not quite…

Reportedly, multi-talented filmmaker, actor, director and producer Tyler Perry revealed over the weekend that he is going to be a father. The news was announced during his lavish 45th Birthday Bash that featured performances from Stevie Wonder, Mary Mary, Ledisi, Jasmine Sullivan and Tevin Campbell.

While Perry did not reveal who the mother of the baby was, it is believed to be Gelila Bekele (pictured above), the 20-something-year-old Ethiopian model he’s been dating over the last few years. No word yet on how many months she is or the sex of the baby.

Perry has most recently enjoyed success with his new OWN series, If Loving You Is Wrong  and will appear in the upcoming thriller Gone Girl  opposite Ben Affleck.

Stay Tuned…
