Amber Rose’s son, Sebastian, knows about his mom’s menstruation cycle. The celebrity mom tells Refinery29 that she isn’t ashamed to discuss reproduction with her 4-year-old.
“I don’t hide things from my son,” Amber says. “He is only 4-years-old. But even still, I talk to him about a lot of things. As far as women, one of the things I do is talk to him about my period. My son knows what a period is. It’s funny because we’ll literally be out at the grocery store, in the aisle, picking out cereal, and he’ll be like, ‘Mommy are you bleeding? Do you need pads? Do you need tampons?’ He’s 4-years-old. People will look at me like, ‘What? How old is he?'”
The star mom further explains, “He sees me in the bathroom. I don’t hide anything from my baby. I think it’s really important because a lot of guys think that periods are gross. So I explain everything to him, when I have cramps or I don’t feel well. I don’t hide that from him.”
Although she can’t tell her son everything that she knows about life due to his young age, Amber looks forward to sharing her experiences as an exotic dancer and more with Sebastian as he grows older. “He’s not going to have to dance, but I think when he gets older, I think he’s gonna be like, ‘Mom you were a dancer? That’s cool!’ I’m gonna let him know what had to be done,” she shares.
Rose will also continue to advocate for gender equality. Her annual Slutwalk was quite the showing last week as Amber made a grand entrance dressed as a superhero.
