As for married life, Tyrese gushed, “It’s good, I like it. I would say everybody — guys, everybody — ultimately that wants to be married and start a family, take your time.”

The singer turned actor, the father of 9-year-old daughter Shayla from a previous marriage, says he got it right the second time. “We’ve been laughing every day. It’s been beautiful.”

Tyrese is now looking forward to the next “Fast” movie, commenting, “I would love to take it to Africa, I would love some Cape Town and Johannesburg… and I would love Matt Damon and Denzel [Washington] to join the franchise. I really feel like they could contribute.”
