AceShowbiz - Congratulations are in order for Tyrese Gibson and Samantha! The couple, who got married on 2017's Valentine's Day, told PEOPLE that they are expecting a baby girl. It is said that the baby is due in September.
In an interview with the webloid, Tyrese expressed his happiness, saying, "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, who was also present during the interview, revealed she learned that she is pregnant with her daughter in late January. Not long after she took her pregnancy test, Tyrese arrived home and they celebrated the happy news together. She continued, "It was me screaming and just being overly excited and just fired up about the news."
"The Fate of the Furious" star also spread the big news on Instagram. He shared a clip showing their happy moments and captioned it with, "It's not a rumor.......

Talking about people's reactions to the happy news they spread, Tyrese opened up, "There was no greater reaction than her [Samantha] mom's reaction. 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."
Samantha talked about how the decision to have a baby this year was right, considering the last year's unfortunate events including a custody hearing amid Tyrese and ex-wife Norma Mithcell's custody battle of their 10-year-old daughter Shayla. She opened up, "We were able to conceive at the right time, I believe. 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.' "
Samantha plans to give birth in Los Angeles, where they also have a home. However, they will raise their new daughter in Georgia, in the same house where they held their wedding ceremony last year.
The 39-year-old actor then shared about his thought on splitting from Norma. He said, "Unfortunately as entertainers and public figures, you have to go through very private matters publicly sometimes... I'm just happy to be on the other side of it and have my daughter back home with us."
