In leading up to the birth, Tyler beamed about being a new father. In fact, his excitement got the best of him in a media interview and he accidentally revealed the gender of the baby.
"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 told Extra TV. "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…"
He then stopped, laughed and exclaimed, "I said 'him!'" Perry paused for a moment before clarifying, "...into whatever the child is supposed to be is what I'm going to do."
It's the first child for Tyler and Gelila. Congrats, you two!
