Tyler Perry's longtime partner Gelila Bekele celebrates all types of moms during Mother's Day, giving them a shoutout on social media for their strength.
Tyler Perry's partner Gelila Bekele shares a sweet Instagram tribute to mothers everywhere, acknowledging their strength for raising and loving their children. As it's a shoutout to all mothers, she decided to share a picture of a woman carrying her child surrounded by nature.
"Mothers/ grandmothers, caregivers/ angels- guardians/ anyone and everyone raising and loving. Happy Mother’s Day weekend #MoreLoveLessFear"
GELILA AND TYLER'S SON
Gelila is a mother herself, sharing a son with Tyler Perry. Although she's a proud mother, she and Tyler have decided to keep him out of the spotlight to protect his privacy.
Through the years, Tyler has gushed about their son Aman, even saying that he is his "greatest joy." However, the public won't expect to see him any time soon, as the "Madea" creator wants his son to grow up without people telling him who he is or who he should be.
FAMILY TIME AT HOME
It's been a special time for Perry's family, as both Gelila and Tyler have been home. With two of them being successful professionals, it's not often they get to spend time at home for long periods. This quarantine has made that possible for them.
She is an activist and a documentary filmmaker, complementing her partner's interests greatly.
WORKING FROM HOME
Although they've been at home for weeks now, Perry and Bekele continue to work. From traveling from set to set and going from meeting to meeting, that's all shifted to a safer environment through video calls.
Instead of her usual makeup routine, Gelila has only been putting on face oil and her favorite lipstick as she springs from one video meeting to another. Naturally, the model looks flawlessly beautiful in the process.
KEEPING THINGS PRIVATE
The same way that Tyler is accomplished in the entertainment industry, Gelila is also a force to reckon with. She is an activist and a documentary filmmaker, complementing her partner's interests greatly.
Despite their private relationship, Tyler and Gelila have proven time and time again that they are going strong and don't need to be public about their lives just to prove that. For them, keeping their privacy is an important thing especially for their son.
