Amber Rose And AE Welcomes Baby Boy Slash Edwards, First Photo

Amber Rose has welcomed a new baby boy with her boyfriend Alexander ‘AE’ Edwards. The couple paid homage to the legendary lead guitarist for the band Guns N’ Roses by naming their son Slash Electric Alexander Edwards.

Amber announced that she was pregnant back in April, sharing a photo from a sonogram appointment on her Instagram page. AE took to Instagram to share a heartfelt post about expecting his first child, “Even when it’s dark … my SON will shine. Thank u baby 4 my greatest gift. s*** wild! I love you I can’t wait to thug it out w my baby boy. ‘& baby boy, I promise I won’t get mad if ur first words r where the b****?”

Amber, unfortunately, experienced a difficult pregnancy as she suffered from hyperemesis gravidarum just as she did when pregnant with her first child Sebastian whom she shares with her ex-husband, rapper Wiz Khalifa. Speaking on the pregnancy, Amber Rose stated, “I can eat a little bit more now cause I’m in my second trimester, but not much, and I pretty much sleep all day. But all in all, babies are a blessing, and God bless women, man. We are resilient, we get through it. You know, it’s really, really hard being pregnant.”

She added, “To all the women out there who just pop out babies like it’s nothing, God bless you guys, because, oh my God, it’s a lot. I wanna be out, I wanna be cute, I wanna show off my belly, I just can’t get off this couch. Like, I’m tired and I just wanna barf all day. It’s just not fun, but it’s totally worth it.”

On Thursday, Amber announced that she was in labor by posting videos from the hospital. In the videos, Amber’s boyfriend AE, who is the vice president of A&R for Def Jam Records, can be seen wearing protective clothing while talking to Amber’s son Sebastian. The model and TV personality was at the breaking point after informing fans that she was “still pregnant” two days ago, well past the nine-month mark.

The music exec took to his Instagram to share his excitement on their new addition posting a tender photo holding his son while kissing him sweetly on the forehead. He captioned the post, “Slash Electric Alexander Edwards…the world is urs now thank u @amberrose for loving me so much that u put ur body thru it 2 bring my sun in2 the world. I could never be as strong as u. Slash a rockstar.”

Congrats to Amber and her man, AE, on the birth of their baby boy Slash!
