Actor and rapper, Tyrese Gibson and his wife Samantha Gibson are expecting their first child together, a baby girl.
The 39-year-old Fast and the Furious actor and his 29-year-old wife, who tied the knot in a surprise Valentine’s Day ceremony in 2017, shared the good news with People on Wednesday.
“Both of our love and energy and magic and families are bonded forever because we’re going to have this child. It’s unbelievable,” the couple said in the joint interview.
“It was me screaming and just being overly excited and just fired up about the news,” Tyrese says.
According to Samantha, she learned that she was pregnant with the couple’s baby girl in late January and they couldn’t have been excited about the news.
“We were able to conceive at the right time, I believe,” Samantha told People. “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.’”
The publication also reported that Samantha plans to give birth in Los Angeles, where they also have a home, and they will raise their new daughter primarily in Georgia, in the same house where they wed last February.
This will be Tyrese’s second child who already shares a 10-year-old daughter, Shayla, with his ex-wife, Norma Mitchell.
