I just love me some Tyler Perry! Recently, he sat down wit GMAs Robin Roberts and talked about how his one-year old son has changed his life! And by the way, we still haven’t seen his son yet? In the article, Perry speaks about how his kid healed him from past abuse and more!
According to the interview, fatherhood has changed Perry! Every cliche is true. Everything they say is real. This kid, he is my healer because I look at myself in his eyes,” Perry said. “And everything that I’m finding about growing up and the things that went wrong in my life, I get an opportunity to do them right for him. So he’s my healer.”
If you’ll recall, Perry stated that his relationship with the man he thought was his father (he found out through a DNA test in 2014 that Emmitt Perry, Sr. was in fact, not his biological parent) was terrible. Perry claimed he heard “You jackass! You got book sense but you ain’t got no common sense” almost every day as a kid, was often beaten, and even contemplated suicide to be rid of his pain as a young man.
So he made it clear that he wanted to be the father he never had before Aman even entered the world. He told Extra, “You know, 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.” Read more from source.
