Tyler Perry, Gelila Bekele have a new baby son, reports say

Tyler Perry and Gilele Bekele reportedly have a new son, Aman Tyler Perry

Tyler Perry and Gilele Bekele cruised into the month of December as parents of a new baby boy, according to several reports.

Aman Tyler Perry was born Sunday, a source told People.

"They are totally and completely excited, and really looking forward to their first holiday with their son," a source told Us Weekly.

A birth announcement apparently went out to family and close friends, People said, and included a request that in lieu of gifts, a donation be made to Charity Water, which works to provide clean water to developing nations.

Perry and model-activist Bekele, 30, have been linked on and off for about five years. Word that they were expecting a child together surfaced in September after the actor-director-writer spilled the beans at a party for his 45th birthday.

A rep for the "Madea" mastermind had no comment.
