Gelila Bekele's Parenthood

Gelila Bekele, the civil activist, is over the moon for having experienced the motherhood for the first time. Gelila gave birth to her baby boy in November of 2017, after letting the news of her pregnancy surface the media in September that year.

Gelila shares the baby with her long-term boyfriend, Tyler Perry, who is an actor and a comedian by profession. Even though no news of their marriage has surfaced the media, the couple has been together for a long run being in an on-and-off relationship.

The couple began dating in 2009 and has been together since then. However, the fact about how they first met, is kept confined as the couple prefers living a low-key life.

Moreover, the duo has not shared the picture of their son yet. Gelila's boyfriend, Tyler, believes that his son is not personally famous and do not want him to be in the limelight because of their fame. 

Likewise, even though Tyler has accumulated a staggering net worth of $600 million, he has decided that his son, Aman, will have to work for himself. Well, that's another way to raise a child into this professionally competitive world!
