A post shared by Amber Rose (@amberrose) on

I totally blank out on many celebrities’ pregnancies, but for some reason, I remembered that Amber Rose was preg this whole time. She was definitely very quiet during this pregnancy though – I kind of wonder if she was medically advised to take it easy and stay low-key and low-stress. Amber announced her pregnancy back in April, with boyfriend Alexander “A.E.” Edwards. Amber famously gave birth to son Sebastian Taylor Thomaz with ex Wiz Khalifa back in 2013, and people seemed happy that she was expecting another kid. Well, she gave birth to another boy yesterday. AE announced the name via Insta:

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 ❤️

[From AE’s Instagram]

Slash Electric. It takes a lot for me to actually be shocked at a bizarre baby name, but this is it. Slash Electric. And Sebastian was so well-named! I loved Sebastian Taylor for the first kid. I wonder if Amber had much input into this baby name. Deep sigh… anyway, congrats to Amber and AE. I hope everyone is doing great.

    congrats to her! I thought she had a breast reduction not too long ago? When I had my reduction, I was told to wait until I was done having kids before getting it because pregnancy could nullify the reduction and because my ability to breastfeed would be reduced by 50%, thankfully I am childfree by choice so no issues there.

    • Joanna says:

      How was the experience for you? I’m a saggy 36DD and kinda considering if I should get a breast reduction or lift. How was the pain? Were you happy with the results?

      • Grace says:

        Breast reduction for the win!! Had it done in my forties..wish I had done it when I was younger. I was a LARGE 34DDDD…it perked me right up. Now I am a 32DD, so still not that small, but waaaay better, so much more comfortable, and can get bras and tops that fit! Do it! It’s not that bad to go through!

      • DRich says:

        Had a reduction at 30 and haven’t looked back. It was also recommended after children but I couldn’t wait. Sixteen years and 2 kids later, I’m still pleased with the results!

      • OriginalLala says:

        Do it!!! The pain was ok but the pay off has been INCREDIBLE!!!

      • Joanna says:

        Thanks ladies!

      • pottymouth pup says:

        reduction was the best thing I did. the worst of the pain was when I stood up to take my first shower. Also, plan to have it done right after your period so you’re a good month after before you have your first period (I did mine right before so experienced a bit more pain)

  2. Erinn says:

    It’s a weird name, but they’re wealthy, and the parents are in the entertainment industry. He’ll be fine.

  3. Keekee says:

    Don’t these celebrities ever feel sorry naming their kids weird names it’s not amusing at all.

    • AppleTartin says:

      And it’s even tackier when it’s a nickname of a well known guitarist. It’s NOT HIS REAL NAME. Idiots have no creativity just copy and steal.

      • Erinn says:

        I mean… isn’t that what all names are? It’s not like it’s original to name your kid Aiden, Liam, Christopher, etc etc. This just stands out because it’s not a typical name. But unless someone creates an absolutely brand new name… we’re all just copying and stealing.

    • minx says:

      Ridiculous name.

  4. JanetFerber says:

    Congrats! Lovely pic of the new father and baby. Her first son looks so sweet and adoring of his mom. I really like Amber. Absolutely gorgeous woman and I always liked how she handles herself in all situations. Beautiful family. Enjoy the new baby!

    • otaku fairy.... says:

      Me too. It would have taken longer to recognize this as Amber Rose without her name being in the title though, because of the long hair. She’s one of those women who looks best with shorter hairstyles.

  5. Snazzy says:

    Big GnR fans ?

    • Snowslow says:

      That’s what I asked myself. I don’t hate the name actually. I’ve come to like whacko names. I like it when people let their freak flags fly. Life’s short and we only do it once. As long as it is a happy decision.

    • Mmmkay says:

      Amber is a Slash from GnR stan. This was 100% her vision.

    • FHMom says:

      For some reason I don’t hate the name, and her older son is gorgeous.

  6. Willa says:

    I think she named the baby Slash because of the guitarist, Slash. She’s made it known that she’s loved him ever since she was a kid.

  7. Kittycat says:

    Terrible name

  8. Joanna says:

    Her older son is so cute. I swear to God, for the longest I thought she was mixed. Am I the only one? I guess she was wearing heavy spray tans cause now she’s as pale as I am.

    • Lisa says:

      I believe her mother is biracial and her father is white.

    • Keekee says:

      she says she is from Cape Verde

    • ReginaGeorge says:

      She is mixed race. Her mom is from Cape Verde and already on the lighter/mixed side and her dad is White.

    • Oracle says:

      Okay, so I have questions–

      Just curious @Joanna, is it just her *skin tone* in this pic, that caused you to all of a sudden think she ‘wasn’t mixed?’

      Why do you think people ‘as pale as you,’ (whatever that is) can’t be mixed or black?

      To me, that sounds sorta crazy.

      Are you from here? (In America, or points south?)

      She’s about a whole shade darker than my mother who’s been ‘black,’ all her life.

      I’m always amazed at people’s ignorance/hang-ups re race, including their own and how they perceive themselves. No offense.

      • Joanna says:

        Yes because when she was with Kanye, her skin tone was a lot darker than it is here. Not because I don’t know black people can be white looking. My stepdaughter can pass for white, she is as white as me. She is mixed and my husband is multiracial. Hes a caramel tone in winter and will get darker if he’s outside a lot. His daughter’s mom is white. So no, I’m not that ignorant. Jesus I’m amazed at your assumptions.

    • MC2 says:

      I appreciate Oracle’s comment.
      “I thought she was mixed….I guess she was wearing heavy spray tans.” There is so much wrong with this statement to unpack. You insinuating that she was faking it?! Skin tone does not dictate heritage, change it and, for god’s sake, I’m a white woman & mine changes according to the seasons plus my level of outdoor activities. What an odd comment.

      • Joanna says:

        No, I’m not saying she was faking it. I’m saying she had a darker skin tone when she was with Kanye. But I guess it was just the makeup. Jesus people

      • Tiff says:

        She looks the same as she did with Kanye, her “tone” didn’t change, is the lighting/filter and the wig 🤦🏽‍♀️

  9. Lucy says:

    Amber’s a massive GnR fan, so I’m pretty sure she did have a say in the name. Congrats to her and A.E.!!

  10. lucy2 says:

    Congrats to them on the baby! I don’t understand choosing that name, but at least there’s a more common middle name in there the kid can use if he chooses.

    Is her face…different? I always thought she was so pretty, but now she looks like everyone else?

    • ab says:

      I think it’s mostly the hair. some face tweaks for sure but the long blonde hair makes her look so generic. she was absolutely stunning with her shaved head.

  11. susiecue says:

    She looks like a totally different person?!

    • AnnaKist says:

      Exactly what I came on to say. It looks as if she’s dispensed with that horrid tan, but what else?

    • Elisa says:

      +1, without the headline I wouldn’t have recognized her. IMO she had a brow-lift and sth done in her mouth / chin area. She looked better before, her son actually resembles her old face (he is super cute BTW).

  12. Lala11_7 says:

    It’s the PERFECT Baby name for their Baby…and she’s a GOOD Mama…which is all I really care about!

    • Slowsnow says:

      Exactly

    • HK9 says:

      I like the name because the third name is Alexander so he can use that if he wants. Which is nice because there’s a choice and Amber is always about choice. While I don’t know the woman, I get good mama vibes from her too.

  13. Originaltessa says:

    The older son is the kid in the Oreo commercials, right? He’s a cutie pie.

  14. LaUnicaAngelina says:

    I agree LaLa!

  15. HK9 says:

    I had to come back to say that Amber looks STUNNING in that picture!!! She’s positively radiant. Congrats to her & her family. 🙂

  16. pollyv says:

    Awful wig.

  17. Trillion says:

    She won me over on RuPaul’s Drag Race years ago. The name? I think it sounds cool -for a nickname. Doesn’t “slash” mean “piss” in the UK?

  18. ME says:

    She’s giving me Kim Kardashian vibes.

  19. Lucy Hamill says:

    Slash can mean “going for a pee” where in from lol but I get the guns n roses reference as she’s a big fan! Love her! Congratulations to the family

  20. SJR says:

    Ya know, at this point I would be floored if a celeb named a kid “Mike”, or “Tom” or any old style name.
    Of course, back in the day most kids had nicknames that followed them into adulthood, including myself. Lots of kids I grew up with still call me by the childhood nickname, which makes my adult kids laugh like crazy. I will not tell you what it is either.

  21. dreamchild says:

    @joanna I had breast reduction surgery, my breasts were about the same size as yours and as I was getting older they were getting bigger. My grandmother had huge boobs which also influenced my choice for reduction rather than lift. It has been almost 20 years and one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. My only suggestion would be to do it in the Spring so most of your healing is in warm weather. I did mine in September and you know what the cold does to nipples. Super painful and led to a couple embarrassing moments of me massaging them forgetting I was in public. Just saying massaging them feels awesome! Also haven’t worn a regular bra in as long. You don’t realize when you have large breasts how heavy those suckers are until they are smaller. Go for it girl I don’t think you will regret it.

  22. avatozeke says:

    I appreciate the fact that if a celebrity is going to give their kid an unusual name, there’s at least a strong personal reason/association for it. The fact that Amber Rose loves GnR and Slash in particular? I kind of find it endearing that it is so meaningful to her. At least it wasn’t a “unique” spelling!

  23. No Doubt says:

    I don’t care for the name, but I’m so happy for her. She gets crapped on so much for her views on sex and also her former relationship with Kanye. She seems very happy with this guy and she’s been with him for awhile.

    • otaku fairy.... says:

      She does, but just like in most situations, the loudest craps will come from those who just aren’t ready. Speaking of… Jezebel ran an article last week about a S.W.E.R.F group doxxing and using revenge porn tactics on sex workers, and in it some of the women were talking about how feminists dehumanize them.

  24. Barfly says:

    She calls Sebastian “Bash” alot on her IG & social media. So the brothers will be Slash & Bash…and if you follow her you know shes a HUGE GnR fan so she probably had input naming this kid….and he’s gonna grow up in showbiz so his name will probably fit in with all the people he’ll go to school with/meet later in life….such is celebrity….congrats on the healthy baby 🙂

  25. Grey says:

    Sebastian is called “Bash”, so it’s cute to me that she has Bash and Slash!

  26. olive says:

    doesn’t her older son go by “bash”? siblings with rhyming names is a little much

  27. Naddie says:

    Somehow I thing fame and money dulls people’s brain until they think their childhood ideas are cool. We have Apple, Bean, Pilot Inspektor and now Slash Electric. Btw when I was a kid I wanted a daugther named Tomoko, which in my language can be effortlessly turned into “stick in your a*#@”.

  28. Severine says:

    No one thinks a name is unusual or weird unless they are told (by their parents) to think that it is. This boy’s peers will not think it is weird that his name is Slash. What I find puzzling is why anyone would want to name their child something overused and common. How many boys do we need named Liam, Alex, Noah and Aiden? If you want to name your child one of those names, that is your right to do so. But to me it says you lack creativity and imagination. We gave our son an unusual name that happens to be more popular in Europe. Never once had to use a last name on name tags!

    • Aggie says:

      Exactly, this. Kids learn that names are “different” from adults. Kids learn to make fun of other kids’ names from watching and mimicking adults.

  29. Zantasia says:

    I wonder if they will call him Sea or S.E.A.

  30. CairinaCat says:

    I accidentally sat on Slash once. He was hiding in my friends bed one morning when I popped over early one morning.
    She had met him at the Troubadour where she worked, this was right before they got huge.
    The band used to sit on her dad’s huge U shaped couch and watch bootlegged VHS videos with us. Her dad had this insane movie library.
    Good times
