Last week, Amber Rose announced her second pregnancy. I didn’t cover it at the time because I didn’t find the news particularly scandalous or gossip-worthy, although I didn’t even even know that Amber was that serious about anyone. She’s been dating Def Jam A&R Vice President Alexander Edwards (he goes by AE). Amber has one son, Sebastian Taylor Thomaz, by her ex-husband Wiz Khalifa. She’s expecting another boy, and she’s already had the gender reveal party and everything. She’s due in October. I’m really happy for her – she loves being a mom, and I bet she’s happy to have another chance to be part of a stable family unit. I hope AE is a good guy – but I bet Amber wouldn’t tolerate him if he wasn’t a good guy. Anyway, it looks like this pregnancy is really difficult on Amber:

Amber Rose is having a rough early pregnancy … because she has the same sickness Kate Middleton had to endure. Sources close to Amber tell TMZ … she’s 13 weeks pregnant and is suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum … a severe type of nausea and vomiting during pregnancy. We’re told Amber was hospitalized at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for a few days, getting IV treatments because she was sick and losing weight.

It’s not all bad though … we’re told Amber and her boyfriend, Alexander “AE” Edwards, are thrilled about having their first child together. We’re told the pregnancy wasn’t planned, but they weren’t taking precautions because they’re deeply in love.

The baby boy is due in October, close to Amber’s birthday … and we’re told she’s excited to share the same sign — Libra. Kate battled the condition through all 3 of her pregnancies … and now Amber’s had it for both of hers.

Amy Schumer is also suffering through a really difficult pregnancy, and she has HG too. Schumer has been sick as a dog throughout her entire pregnancy though, and I hope Amber doesn’t have to suffer like that. I hope her HG is a lot more mild, like the kind Kate seems to get in the first trimester – Kate’s usually sick as a dog from like month 2 to 4. Poor Amber (and Amy).

    Orrrr she just wanted another kid and this was the sucker who got trapped lol. All jokes aside congrats !

    • Yes Doubtful says:

      Trapped? Really?

    • Anna says:

      Why are you making this assumption? Could it be that perhaps you have fallen back into tired old sexist (and yes, racist) assumptions about women, especially women of color?

      Just some food for thought.

  2. Jb says:

    I like amber but she falls in “love” fast and especially with dudes who are not marriage material/faithful. She also seems like the type who can’t be alone and jumps into relationship from relationship. Congrats on the baby as Sebastian seems like her biggest love of all but hoping if it doesn’t work with AE she just enjoys being single and solo for a bit

    • velourazure says:

      Hoping this dude is a little bit better relationship material. From what I’ve seem he seems more willing to express his devotion to her publicly unlike the rappers and athletes before him.

    Had HG, wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy.

  4. NotSoSocialButterfly says:

    What in the world is the reason to say you weren’t using protection??? Seems superfluous, at best.

    • minx says:

      Oh, I know. Talk about over sharing.

    • Jb says:

      Nice way to say it was an accident?? Yea agreed completely not necessary to include. Also I was on birth Control until recently does that mean my husband and I aren’t “deeply in love”?? I commented above I like amber but the statement reads like they’re trying to explain away an unplanned pregnancy, which is not necessary

    • outoftheshadows says:

      I was thinking that not using protection is basically planning on having a child. What’s the distinction?

    • SK says:

      Yeah, if you’re not using protection then yes, you are trying!!

    • Ange says:

      Especially since they’ve only been dating since September last year or so. Maybe get to know a person before you commit to marriage or children people! It’s like something is in the water in hollywood lately.

  5. JanetFerber says:

    Congrats to all! I’ve always liked Amber and she seems like a beautiful person inside and out.

  6. Veronica S. says:

    Terrible disease without proper care, honestly. If I recall correctly, it’s thought HG may have been what killed Charlotte Brontë.

    I had it with all three.
    It’s like having stomach flu for months.
    The first was the worst.
    By month 7, I didn’t think I could take it any longer and was seriously depressed but you don’t want to take anything when you are growing a human in your body.

    Example: I weighed a healthy 135 lbs when I got p.g. and weighed 117 lbs the day after he was born. He weighed 8 1/2 lbs.
    I kept asking for help and saying, “This isn’t normal. I’ve only gained 3 lbs.” but I was just ignored and didn’t know what to do.

    Everyone: “Eat saltines and drink ginger ale!”
    Me: “Go f**k yourself. Do you think I haven’t tried that and everything else?”

    Because of it, I didn’t plan to ever have more kids but remarried many years later and agreed to one more.
    The sick only lasted 5 months with that one.

    4 months with the last surprise baby.

    People think it’s not real but it is and you have to keep going to work and all.
    I got used to driving with a barf bucket and had one next to my desk as well.
    I’m never going to miss being pregnant. Pregnancy sucks.

    • PleaseAndThankYou says:

      I am so, so sorry that you had to endure that, @nancypants. It’s unbelievable how little they can do for severe nausea and vomiting, especially when you are pregnant, and it can become so dangerous so quickly and so easily. I cannot fathom going through that while pregnant, and being unable to keep weight on must have been terrifying. And I can certainly attest to how painfully irritating the “ginger ale and saltines” comments are, too.
      I have a chronic illness that causes constant (every 20-30 minutes) projectile vomiting for 24-96 hours when an episode is triggered (called Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome or abdominal migraines), with episodes occurring at least once a month, sometimes up to 3x monthly. Hormones, travel, anxiety, everything that can trigger a regular migraine will set my stomach off. I had a very mild form of it my entire life (mild to the point of going undiagnosed; I grew up believing that I just had a “weak stomach”, and that I simply seemed to get food poisoning or gastritis more easily and more frequently than others) until I miscarried 5 years ago, and for some reason, this kicked my illness into high gear (PPD came as a part of the deal, too! Likely connected). It changed the course of my entire life, and has only been somewhat controlled for the last 10 months – with a lot of medication and a lot of time and effort.
      I have no idea what will happen when my husband and I decide to try to get pregnant again, and neither do any of my doctors, but I am absolutely terrified to go through something like HG during a pregnancy. I struggle to keep weight on as it is. It’s so difficult to not know how your body will react to pregnancy.

        Thank you and I’m so sorry for your loss and what you are going through.

        I’ve always wondered if it’s genetic.
        Many of the people on my mom’s side of the family have stomach issues to include ulcers, acid reflux, and so on.
        We aren’t sure but it seems my mom’s grandmother died from stomach cancer.
        I DO think it might be genetic as many ailments are.

        Don’t get angry and Judge Judy y’all, but some edibles help with vomiting and nausea among other things like PTSD and nightmares, anxiety but NOT while pregnant or working or driving.

        I never tried edibles until about a year and a half ago.
        I was drug tested so often for so long that I still can’t pee without a cup between my legs. ;)
        Weed is legal here and I don’t smoke anything ever but I have a little bit of candy an hour before bed once every 2-3 weeks.

        A little Jolly Rancher type watermelon candy or Cheba Chew works better than any prescription they ever gave me.

        I wish you all the best.
        Be well.
