In an interview last year on the "Steve Harvey" show Perry talked about his goal to eventually become a father by the age of 45.
"More than anything I think that it’s fatherhood. I know I would be a great father. I don’t want to work this hard. I don’t want to have all of this and not leave it to my children. I also know that as hard as I’m working, doing twenty hours per day, now is not the time. Right now I’m enjoying what I’m doing. I’m enjoying the work. I’m enjoying being a bachelor, so eventually I’ll get there."
"Listen, I’m 43, so two more years. By 45 you know who the hell you are, right? You’ve really settled in at 45 so I think two more years."
Perry revealed he’s expecting his first child during his 45th birthday party last week. While he did not reveal who the mother is, sources close to Perry believe that it’s likely model Gelila Bekele is the mom to be. She and Perry have been dating off and on for the last five.
