Tyrese has been a little quiet these days and we think we know the reason why. The singer/actor shared with PEOPLE magazine that he and his wife Samantha are expecting their first child together. This makes sense after the whole debacle in 2017 between his beef with celebrities and his ex-wife who wanted full custody of his first-born.
PEOPLE reports, "A little more than a year after their Valentine’s Day wedding, Fast & Furious star Tyrese Gibson and his wife Samantha are expecting a baby girl."
“Both of our love and energy and magic and families are bonded forever because we’re going to have this child,” Gibson said. “It’s unbelievable.”
It's said that Samantha, a 29-year-old social worker, found out she was pregnant in late January - which wasn't long after the couple began trying conceive. Tyrese and Samantha celebrated the news minutes after Samantha was met with a positive first pregnancy test.
“It was me screaming and just being overly excited and just fired up about the news,” he says.
The couple spread their news with a faux movie trailer, narrated by Tyrese himself, and ultimately shows footage of Samanta's ultrasound.
“There was no greater reaction than her mom’s reaction,” Gibson says of his wife. “Samantha is her only daughter, and this has been prayers for years and years, for her to get married and find the right one and start a family.” Now in her second trimester, with their baby due in September, Samantha says she’s been in “full practicing mode” with 10-year-old stepdaughter Shayla, “[whom] I consider mine.”
Samantha states that this is the perfect time for her family right now.
“We were able to conceive at the right time, I believe,” she says. “There was a lot that happened last year — everyone is aware of that — and so to have the opportunity to … really start a new chapter in the way that has happened, I just look to God and I’m like, ‘Wow, I can’t believe that you would plan it this way and you do it so perfectly.’ “
