A hearty congratulations to Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa, the proud parents of a new baby boy. Wiz announced the birth last night via Twitter: “Happy Birthday Sebastian “The Bash” Taylor Thomaz!!!” he tweeted. “Everyone welcome this perfect young man into the world.” Of course, celebrities far and wide obliged the new papa, with congrats flowing in from Russell Simmons, Chevy Woods, Tamar Braxton and even Larry King. And it wouldn’t be a celeb birth celebration without a hashtag and some Twitter trending: #TheBash became a hot topic just hours after he made his big debut. Sorry folks: no pictures and no word about whether Amber and Wiz stuck with their plans for an all-natural, drug-free water birth, with Wiz being the first to touch their newborn. But we’re super glad to hear that their child is healthy and the couple is happy. Welcome to the MyBrownBaby family, Amber and Wiz!
