Tyler Lepley is one of the many breakout stars of the series P-Valley. The actor has been a viral social media heartthrob for a while now and finally scored a major role that helped highlight his acting skills as well as good looks. P-Valley was a double blessing for Lepley because it’s also how he met the lady of his life, Miracle Watts. The pair had just welcomed their first child together.
Tyler Lepley grew up in Philadephia and was raised by his Italian mother and Jamaican father. He would become a star athlete throughout college and pursued the sport for several years. Even when his dreams got sidelined due to an injury, he managed to bounce back and became the MVP at Villanova University before he attended Kutztown University on a football scholarship.
He eventually relocated to Los Angeles to become a personal trainer. He was discovered by a casting agent who invited him to audition for a film. From there, his acting career took off. In 2013, he booked the role of Benny on Tyler Perry’s The Haves and the Have Nots and began gaining viral popularity for his good looks on social media. In 2019 he scored his role on Starz P-Valley and was made a series regular.
Miracle Watts would join the series during its second season. She’s been an influencer for a while now and was even name-dropped by Drake on a Tinashe remix. She quickly upgraded from an exotic dancer to a social media influencer. Eventually, she would score a role as a dancer at Uncle Clifford’s club, where she met her man Tyler.
The duo took to social media last summer to make things official with a photo together with the caption “6.14.21 🖤” By May of this year, they revealed they were expecting their first child together in a video inspired by the film The Notebook.
Lepley already has two kids, Leo and Jade, whom he shares with ex-April King. Miracle and Tyler took to IG to welcome home their baby boy. Dressed in all black and sitting on a couch, she captioned the post “My Kings.” Congrats to the happy couple.
