Tyler Perry was all smiles as he walked the red carpet Sunday night for the premiere of the Martin Luther King Jr. inspired film, Selma.

The Madea director has a reason to celebrate, as he recently became a father for the first time.

The actor and director, 45, and his longtime girlfriend, model and activist Gelila Bekele, welcomed their first child in late November.

Perry opened up about fatherhood in an interview with theGrio.com.

“I wish I could say that I’m up all night, but [Gelila] is doing alot of work,” Perry said. “She’s a great mother who just wants to be there for the baby. We have no nannies, we have no help. She wants to do it all. So we’re doing it all. I’m getting a little sleep, but she’s not getting any.”

Perry later revealed that his son’s name is Aman.
