The wait is over! Chris Brown finally revealed the name and first photo of his baby boy with ex-girlfriend, Ammika Harris, to Instagram on Wednesday, December 11.
In the photo, Chris, 30, appeared to cradle his baby boy’s foot while wearing a hospital band. “AEKO CATORI BROWN,” he wrote, which seemingly confirmed the little one’s name.
Shortly after sharing the photo, fans shared their excitement. “CONGRATULATIONS BRO,” one fan wrote. Another added, “God Bless.” A third noted, “FINALLY! congratulations!”
Like Chris, Ammika, 26, confirmed the news by reposting the same image to her Instagram Stories. One of Ammika’s friends, Demi Milani, admitted that she was shocked when she learned the news about her pregnancy. “I completely lost it when your mother surprised me with the pregnancy news. I was literally crying my eyes out and immediately fell in love with you. You’re so loved baby boy,” she wrote to her Instagram Stories.
Throughout the duration of Ammika’s pregnancy, the former couple kept their lips tightly sealed. Last month, Chris hinted that the model gave birth after he shared two cryptic posts to social media. For the first post, Chris shared a photo of himself smiling with the caption “11-20-19.” In another post, the Indigo star rocked a sweater that had the word “born” on it.
Aeko marks Ammika’s first child and Chris’ second. Back in May 2014, Chris welcomed his daughter, Royalty, with ex-girlfriend Nia Guzman. The following year, during an interview, Chris explained that being a hands-on dad was important to him.
“I didn't care about how me and Nia didn't have a relationship, I didn't care about any situation. I just wanted to see Royalty. I just wanted to be able to have that opportunity, as something personal to me. I'm not gonna be upset, I'm not gonna be mad. I have to be honest with myself and pick the priorities over the situation. I had to make my priority my daughter," he said at the time.
