Director-actor Tyler Perry hinted at his recent birthday party that he and model girlfriend Gelila Bekele are expecting their first child.

A guest at the party told E! News, "He said he had to start getting used to not getting a lot of sleep, because his life was about to change in a big way. He said, 'Some of you know what I'm talking about.'"

The guest added that Bekele is about "seven or eight months pregnant."

News of the pregnancy was posted on some friends' social media sites but were taken down soon afterwards.

Guests at Perry's birthday party included Jennifer Holliday, Tamia and LeAnn Rimes, and featured a performance by Stevie Wonder.

Perry has yet to comment on the pregnancy rumors.
