The mother of his child is said to be Ethiopian-born model Gelila Bekele, who Perry has been linked with for the last five years or so.
In the past Perry had said that he wanted a child by 45, and fittingly Perry has accomplished that. Last year Perry told The Steve Harvey show his plans for a baby.
“I know I would be a great father. I don’t want to work this hard. I don’t want to have all of this and not leave it to my children. I also know that as hard as I’m working, doing twenty hours per day, now is not the time. Right now I’m enjoying what I’m doing. I’m enjoying the work. I’m enjoying being a bachelor, so eventually I’ll get there.”
Perry is yet to publicly speak about the baby’s mother, but we suspect pressure to do so will mount now that the news is now viral.
I can see this on Oprah’s Lifeclass already! Let’s just hope next he’s not on Iyanla Fix My Life!
