Tyler Perry’s about to take on his most challenging role yet! The self-made media mogul is going to be a dad!

While celebrating his 45th birthday last week, reports that Tyler revealed he’s about to achieve another huge milestone in his life. He joyfully told guests that he’s expecting his first child!

Although Tyler was thrilled to announce the big news to his friends during the bash, where Stevie Wonder was performing, he supposedly kept the mother’s identity a secret. He has been dating a woman named Gelila Bekele on-and-off for the past years, but we don’t know if they’re on or off right now.

Either way, Tyler is taking a huge step, and we wish him the best!
