Tyler Perry's longtime girlfriend Gelila Bekele stuns in a photo in a gorgeous red dress.
Fans of Tyler Perry probably know all about his career as an actor and a director, and his work as a philanthropist, but few know about his personal life.
The director has always kept his private life low key, which is a pity because his longtime girlfriend is an extraordinary woman.
Perry and Ethiopian model Gelila Bekele have been together for a long time, and in 2014, they welcomed their first child, son Aman, now 5.
Recently Gelila has given fans a glimpse into her life by posting a striking photo she took in her native Ethiopia in a red dress, and the peace she feels in her native land transpires in her face.
Gelila's book, "Guzu" gives a glimpse into the daily lives and cultures of six tribes
Gelila is a very talented lady in her own right. She was signed on by Ford Models in 2006. Apart from her successful career in fashion, Gelila is dedicated to charity work and has written a book about her native Ethiopia.
Gelila's book, "Guzu" gives a glimpse into the daily lives and cultures of six tribes: the Hamar, Tigray, Afar, Raya, Harrar, and Lasta Lalibela peoples of Ethiopia.
One of Gelila's primary projects is Charity Water, a non-profit organization that has helped provide drinking water to over 8.2 million people in 24 developing countries since 2006.
Tyler Perry met the lovely Gelila Bekele at a Prince concert in 2007, and the two have been inseparable ever since.
In 2014, Gelila announced that she was pregnant in the cutest way.
“I get a FaceTime call and she’s holding up the pregnancy stick. I’m like, ‘I guess this is happening,'” he said.
They welcomed their first son together, Aman Tyler Perry, who is now 5. How about a little sisted for Aman, just as pretty as her mom?
