The other Amber Rose, Amber Rose Tamblyn, recently announced that she’s knocked up and her husband of four years David Cross is the father. As you can see from the picture above, Amber and David aren’t regular famous people, they’re cool famous people. So I would never expect them to announce they’re having a baby by posting a cheesy black and white picture on Instagram of David caressing Amber’s bump with both their eyes closed. That’s nowhere close to how they announced the news.
Amber let the world know she’s pregnant in a serious essay about sexual assault for Glamour. Dear internet: now might not be the best time to make jokes about Tobias Fünke, Analrapist being a dad. Shortly after Donald Trump and Billy Bush’s pussy-grabbing bus chat leaked, Amber took to Instagram to share a personal story about an ex-boyfriend sexually assaulting her at a concert. She elaborated further about her experience in an essay released today for Glamour. Amber talks about talking to her own mother about sexual assault before subtly announcing she’ll one day be talking to her own daughter about that sort of thing.
“I’ve been thinking about motherhood a lot lately. What it means to be one, what it means to have one, what it means to know one, what it means to make decisions as one and have conversations as one…Motherhood has been heavily on my mind because I am going to be a mother soon. I’m pregnant, with a daughter on the way. I think constantly about the world I am bringing her into.”
She goes on to talk about how she’d like to bring her daughter up in a world where Donald Trump is a “Who?” and the hope that her daughter will know the possibility of a female president.
This will be 33-year-old Amber and 52-year-old David’s first child. No word on when she’s due or any of that.
That’s probably the heaviest celebrity baby announcement that has ever been. Especially from Amber Rose and David Cross. I always pictured them more as the type to do it in a video where Amber writes “WE DID IT!” on David’s wrinkly balls in Sharpie before doing pregnancy-twerks in a pair of leopard print leggings. I’m glad Amber did in a way that was important to her. But part of me feels a little sad for David’s balls. I’m sure they would have liked to have been included.
