40 and Over Celebs That Aren't Parents But We Wish Were

86th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Tyler Perry is leaving one lists to join another. He's no longer apart of the 40 and over celebs that aren't parents to join the ones that are. At 45 years of age, he confirmed that he's expecting his first child with girlfriend of five years, Gelila Bekele. He stated in an interview that he didn't "want to have all of this and not leave it to my children," and we agree.

Now that he's done everything it seems his heart could ever desire he wants to leave his legacy to the fruit of his loins. Maybe his actions and that of other 40 and over celeb parents will put the baby battery in these stars that have yet to bare kids to leave their fortune to.

Tracee Ellis Ross

Tracee Ellis doesn't have kids so if she's looking to adopt us, she can. We would love to raid her closet and maybe get some of her comedic qualities to rub off on us.

Will Packer seems like an overnight success story and a great bedtime story he can tell to his kids and later grandkids if he has any.

Tinashe Resurfaces With Exciting Message: "I'm Back And Better"

Tinashe fans rejoice! After a hiatus, the Joyride artist resurfaced on Instagram Saturday (Sept. 28), in a brief video expressing that she's “back and better.”

After a tumultuous relationship with her label RCA, the singer-songwriter broke ties with the company. Since then, she's been hibernating in her “cave,” as she puts it.

"Creatively, I just feel like I needed to go through what I went through in order to be the person that I am today and to get back to my roots," she explained. "You pretty much put your heart and soul and emotions into all these songs and then you put them out there for the world to judge and tear down and pick apart. It's terrifying and it can really mess with your head."

In an interview with VIBE, Tinashe expressed how important it is for her to stay true to herself and artistry. “It’s not even necessarily speaking up but coming to your own conclusions yourself and owning your own instincts and trusting in yourself and creative power,” she said. “I think that’s something that is always important to continue to maintain. It’s easy for that sometimes to get derailed, and it’s important to come back to that.”

During her recent statement, she broke down the importance of art and how it should be expressed through individuality and free expression, sans any boxes or limitations. Making people happy through her music is the goal.

"Music and art are supposed to be these wonderful beautiful things that bring people joy and happiness, and that's really why I started making music in the first place—to give people something that means something to them,” she said.

Although Tinashe did not say when fans can expect new music, she did share a snippet of what she’s been working on in the studio in a separate post. “I’m too emotional.”
