Congratulations are in order for Tyrese Gibson. The singer and actor is having a baby! He first shared the news with People, doing an exclusive interview alongside his wife-of-one-year Samantha.
“It’s unbelievable,” he told the outlet.
After a little over a year of marriage, Tyrese, 39, and Samantha, 29, are expecting a baby girl. The social worker learned she was with child in January via a home pregnancy test. According to the couple, Tyrese came home minutes after Samantha read the positive results.
“It was me screaming and just being overly excited and just fired up about the news,” Tyrese told People. “Both of our love and energy and magic and families are bonded forever because we’re going to have this child.”
The duo — who vowed “I do” in a private, low key ceremony on Valentine’s Day of 2017 — announced their new edition to their family with a sweet mock movie trailer.
The “Sweet Lady” singer’s second daughter is slated to join the world in September of this year, with Samantha being in her second trimester. Tyrese’s oldest daughter, Shayla, is just as excited about the new baby as her dad. According to 10-year-old’s stepmom, Shayla’s “been asking for siblings since I’ve known her.”
Samantha, who met the star through mutual friends nearly three years ago, added that she’s in “full practicing mode” with Shayla, “[whom] I consider mine.”
Sing it loud!
After People broke the story, Tyrese himself took to Instagram to share the good news some more and sing his wife’s praises. Along with a screenshot of People‘s headline, the 2 Fast and 2 Furious actor said that news of his second child is “not a rumor.”
“So proud to share the news!” he went on. “I will never forget when my wife told me these words….. ‘Take my hand and never let go, I will love you and stand with you through thick and thin from my heart, our love will inspire others to lovers to love deeper… Take my hand and where ever you lead me I will follow you around the world’.. -Samantha Gibson”
“I love you too………. Truly.. I guess the world knows now…….” he added. In response, fans flooded the comments with well-wishes and congrats.
“That’s gonna be a gorgeous baby girl!! Congratulations brother! Many blessings upon your family!” commented a fan. Another wrote, “Congratulations. You have a good queen it sounds. She was there when you was acting out and was at your darkest moment trying to fight to get your daughter back,” before adding, “good to see you posting positive.”
Speaking of the star’s “darkest moment,” it has been nearly six months since his eight-year-long custody battle against his first wife Norma ended. Back in November 2017, a Los Angeles court judge awarded him 50/50 custody of his daughter from his first marriage. Wearing a black ‘Shayla Rocks’ hoodie, the soon-to-be father-of-two took Shayla out for celebratory sushi at Nobu Malibu.
“My reputation has been f**ked up forever,” he told TMZ at the time. Now that I’ve been completely exonerated, I’m trying to clean up my reputation. I want to go back to work.”
