Although Tyler was thrilled to announce the big news to his friends during the bash, where Stevie Wonder was performing, he supposedly kept the mother’s identity a secret. He has been dating a woman named Gelila Bekele on-and-off for the past few years, but we don’t know if they’re on or off right now; this doesn’t necessarily mean she’d be the mother.

Either way, Tyler is taking a huge step, and we wish him the best!
