Tyler Perry's longtime girlfriend Gelila Bekele shares a gorgeous selfie on Instagram, appreciating the natural spring light as she lounged indoors.
Tyler Perry, Gelila Bekele, and their son are currently safe at home amid the COVID-19 pandemic. To keep herself busy recently, Gelila shared a gorgeous barefaced photo on her Instagram stories as she appreciated the spring light.
Staying at home could be quite a daunting task, especially for figures like Tyler Perry and Gelila Bekele who are always on-the-go. With the ongoing pandemic, however, they're left with no choice but to stop work for a while and stay at home with their son to keep themselves safe.
Since then, the couple has been sharing updates with their fans through social media, which often include videos, throwback pictures, and selfies. Recently, Bekele expressed how much she missed the beach, sharing a picture of her enjoying her time sitting on a rock by the water.

While everybody knows that Tyler Perry is an actor, producer, and director, not a lot of people know that Gelila is also very accomplished on her own right. Working in the entertainment industry, she is a model and filmmaker.
Aside from this, she is also an activist for her home country Ethiopia, and most of her work focuses on equal rights and access to education for girls and women.
Tyler and Gelila have been together for more than a decade now, sharing a son together. While not a lot is heard about them on social media due to their decision to keep things low-key, there are some occasions when they do appear together.
Despite their setup, Perry made it clear that Gelila is "getting a share of all of it." To him, it's important that his family stays out of the public eye for their own protection.
