Tyler Perry slipped up and revealed the gender of his baby on the way with girlfriend Gelila Bekele. Plus, he hit up the “TODAY” show to dish on his upcoming role in the drama thriller Gone Girl. More inside…

Tyler Perry is on the promo circuit to promote his new film Gone Girl, where he plays a powerful defense attorney. And during a recent interview with “EXTRA”, Tyler (above at the film’s NYC premiere) accidently confirmed the sex of his baby on the way with his on-again off-again girlfriend Gelila Bekele.

Since confirming he’s about to become a new dad, the director/screenwriter sat down with “EXTRA” correspondent Jerry Panacoli, alongside his co-stars Neil Patrick Harris and Kim Dickens, to talk about his new role in life…becoming a father. And while talking about his bundle of joy, he revealed that he’s having a boy!

When asked what type of dad he plans to be to his unborn, Tyler responded,

“The greatest gift I’m being given right now is the opportunity to give the little boy in me everything I never had, so that’s what I’m excited about. This beautiful human being that God has allowed to come into my life for me to get to know, because they come with their own personalities, who they are, to shepherd and usher him…”

Oops! He then said, “I said 'him.” And continued, “into whatever the child is supposed to be is what I’m going to do.”

And this morning...

 

Tyler Perry appeared on NBC News’ “TODAY” show with Tamron Hall to dish on his role in the film adaptation of the novel Gone Girl. He chatted about taking the role as defense attorney Tanner Booker, continuing acting even after success as a director and anxiety about being in the delivery room.

Here are the highlights:

Tyler Perry on if he took on the role of Tanner Booker based on the popularity of the book, “Gone Girl”:
“No, not at all, and had I been I probably would have passed on it. I didn’t want to step into this huge expectation of, ‘You’ve got to do it this way and the book says to do it this way’…I think everybody who read the book is going to be very, very happy.”

Perry on what tempts him to keep acting even though he is hugely successful as a director:
“It’s a part of me expressing all sides of the artist of myself. Every part of me has a bit that wants to work and do some of those things.”

Perry, an expectant father, on if he’ll be going to Lamaze classes:
“Lamaze is okay but delivery room, I don’t know. Pray for me on that.”

Ha! Check the interview above.

Gone Girl hits theaters October 3rd.  We are SO here for it.
