In between directing, writing and producing several films and television shows, Tyler Perry found time to be at the birth of his brand-new baby boy, his first child with longtime girlfriend Gelila Bekele.
Perry walked the red carpet at the Selma: The Legends Who Paved the Way gala celebration, where he stopped to talk with ET about the exciting new addition to his family.
"It was the most amazing thing. I was there, I cut the cord, I was in the room, I was helping her breath. I can't even describe it," Perry told ET. "It's really fresh. I'm here for about 18 hours then I'm right back to New York because I can't wait to see him."
ET first confirmed in September that Perry, 45, and Bekele, 28, were expecting their first child. Perry even talked about wanting to be a father last year during an appearance on Steve Harvey.
"I know I would be a great father," Perry told Harvey. "I don't want to work this hard. I don't want to have all of this and not leave it to my children."
