Tyrese Gibson is expecting his second child! The singer/actor has confirmed that he and his wife Samantha are pregnant with their first child together, and it’s a baby girl.
The couple revealed the news exclusively to People after Samantha learned she was pregnant in late January. In a rare joint interview, the Gibson’s told the publication, “Both of our love and energy and magic and families are bonded forever because we’re going to have this child. It’s unbelievable.”
Samantha learned she was pregnant not long after the couple decided to try to conceive. The mom-to-be says she didn’t even have time to plan a surprise because Tyrese arrived home moments after a pregnancy test revealed the news.
Gibson says he was “screaming” and “overly excited and just fired up” about the news. And, family and friends are just as excited. “There was no greater reaction than her mom’s reaction,” the R&B star shared. “Samantha is her only daughter, and this has been prayers for years and years, for her to get married and find the right one and start a family.”
Gibson has one daughter, Shayla, from his previous marriage, but Samantha says there will be no sibling rivalry because Shayla’s “been asking for siblings since I’ve known her.”
“We were able to conceive at the right time, I believe,” she added. “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.'”
CONGRATS TO THE GIBSON’S!!
