Ethiopian model Gelila Bekele knows how to get her grooves on! The social worker showed a must-seen dance move in a new clip she shared on her Instagram page. The video can be seen below!


Humanitarian, and documentary maker Bekele has modeled for major brands like Levi’s, Diesel, Anna Sui, Michael Kors, H&M, just to name a few. She has also appeared in numerous reputable magazines.


In 2009 she was engaged to Tyler Perry, and years later, the couple was blessed with a son, Aman Tyler Perry. Despite her busy life, she was recently seen enjoying free time in a video she posted on her Instagram page. The model showed her fans a glimpse of a dance move in the five seconds video she posted.

It was a sunny day, so Gelila showed off a lot of skin wearing just a bra and scarf tied around her waist. She captioned the video,

"Little vegan muscles (Rrrrrrrrr?) @simonelovesfitness."


The clip, as expected, received lots of likes and comments from her followers.

Tyler Perry once revealed that Gelila revealed her pregnancy to him on a video call in an episode of "PEOPLE's" "The Jess Cagle Interview." The "Madea" actor explained that he got the news at the exact place he got the test results that said his father wasn't his real father. He also remembered to profess his love for the 31-year-old model.

"There's no other person on this planet that I would want to be involved with or have a child with because she’s amazing" Tyler confessed.


Even though the couple hasn't said anything about tying the knot, rumors say otherwise. Singer Stephanie Mills once fuelled the stories that they may be secretly married when she shared a picture of herself with the couple on Instagram. The image was innocent until she added the caption, which was either direct or misinterpreted. She wrote,

"Tyler Perry, his lovely wife, Gelila and I at The Tyler Perry Cast Party in Atlanta GA."


Tyler also once told the world about his desire to start a family during an interview on the "Steve Harvey's show."

"I know I would be a great father,' he said, I don't want to work this hard, I don't want to have all of this and not leave it to my children," the father of one concluded.

Besides modeling, Bekele is also a humanitarian and social activist who makes it her life’s work to provide clean water to those who don’t have access. And yes, she can dance!
