 - The director, writer, producer, comedian, and actor is a proud dad of one little man, Aman Tyler Perry, with his stunning model girlfriend, Gelila Bekele. 


- What makes the entire occasion extravagantly fabulous and posh is the list of A-list godparents in a star-studded christening event.

- Aman's godparents include the 'Queen Of All Media,' Oliver Ripley, and Cicely Tyson, and we've got the details from 'E! News'


One of the highest paid men in the entertainment industry, Tyler Perry celebrated his son's christening a few years back, and it was a complete blast and success as it was a star-studded event with over the top godparents.

Indeed, Aman Tyler Perry is one lucky baby who is blessed with a wonderful and kind-hearted mom and dad and phenomenal godparents.


Apparently, as Tyler Perry revealed previously, his only son was christened in a church that he built in his backyard. 

He even shared some snaps of the said venue and the cake as well as the invitation card in the above post on his official Facebook page where he penned down how he came about with the church. 

Before he became a proud and blessed dad, he was a proud, loving, and caring son to his mother as he built the church for his mother's honor, and expressed further which we quote below.

'I know she was with us in spirit. Thank you to all our family and friends for joining us.'




One of the big A-listers who joined the christening and welcoming Aman is the media mogul, Oprah Winfrey.

Tyler Perry took a snap of the 'Queen Of All Media' in his child's christening event in the reception area as evident in the post above.

The proud dad posted the photo above of Oprah with his baby's name at the backdrop and wrote down a caption.

'What a special day. Thank you Oprah, Oliver, and Cicely. I know my son has great Godparents. To be born in love is a beautiful thing.'


 Oprah's best friend of more than 2 decades also came to join the celebration for Aman's christening. 

He is the only son of the couple, the entertainment mogul, Tyler Perry, and model-philanthropist, Gelila Bekele.

The dad also welcomed A-list guest singers such as Jennifer Hudson.

Gayle shared this on her Instagram account as evident above which she wrote down the important role that Tyler has taken on.

Oprah Winfrey, on the other hand, shared a glimpse of how the christening went about with the picture collage above.

The 'Queen Of All Media' is clearly having a blast and a great time bonding with the great Cicely Tyson which she shares a caption alongside with it, and we quote it below.

The entertainment mogul dad told 'Extra' earlier before his son's birth, 

'The greatest gift I'm being given right now is the opportunity to give the little boy in me everything I never had, so that's what I'm excited about.'

He continued, and we quote.

'This beautiful human being that God has allowed to come into my life for me to get to know, because they come with their own personalities, who they are, to shepherd and usher him...into whatever the child is supposed to be is what I'm going to do.'

 Isn't Aman extremely blessed to be surrounded by wonderfully brilliant people?
