Amber Rose Named Her Baby After Slash

0

Model and actress Amber Rose, who at least some of us dummies (like me) know mostly as “Kanye West’s ex,” gave birth to a baby boy last week, and she named the lil’ guy after Slash. By which I do not mean she named him Saul (Slash’s real name is Saul Hudson, in case ya didn’t know). I mean she literally named him Slash. Slash Electric, to be precise. Slash Electric Alexander Edwards, to be really precise (the baby’s father is Alexander “A.E.” Edwards, VP of A&R for Def Jam).

And that’s… uh… neat, I guess, but it seems like a missed opportunity. If they’d given the baby Amber’s last name instead of the father’s and named it Axl, well, that would have been pretty funny. Axl Rose was born William Rose and raised William Bailey, so this would have been, to the best of my knowledge, the first Axl Rose who was actually born Axl Rose. That would have been entertaining.
