Hollywood actor Tyler Perry and his partner, Gelila Bekele, had their 3-month-old son christened on Sunday in an elaborate event attended by various celebrities and Gospel singers.
In a Facebook post on Monday, the 45-year-old “Madea” actor shared photos from his son, Aman Tyler Bekele-Perry’s christening, which was held in the backyard of his Beverly Hills home.
The event was attended by the couple’s friends and family as well as Gospel singer and pastor Smokie Norful, who led the christening. Other attendees included Gospel singer Yolanda Adams, VaShawn Mitchell, and R&B artist Jennifer Hudson. Media mogul Oprah Winfrey was named as one baby Aman’s godmothers along with actress Cicely Tyson and Oliver Ripley.
“These pictures are from our son’s christening yesterday. Christening him in the Gospel,” Perry captioned alongside the beautiful photos.
Another photo revealed an empty church, which Perry explained was built in his backyard in honor of his late mother.
“I had this church built in my backyard. It’s almost a direct replica of the one my mother grew up in. It was in her honor. I know she was with us in spirit. Thank you to all our family and friends for joining us,” he wrote.
