Chris Brown announces Aeko (pronounced as echo) is name of his newborn son with ex-girlfriend Ammika Harris
The 30-year-old rapper – who already has five-year-old daughter Royalty with his former partner Nia Guzman – announced on Instagram on Friday (29.11.19) that him and his ex-girlfriend Ammika Harris have chosen the unusual moniker for him. Alongside a picture of him looking at his phone, Chris wrote: “RORO & AEKO(ECHO) (sic).”
Up until now, the former couple hasn’t publicly spoken about their tot’s birth, but they did both take to social media to post cryptic messages, which fans of the ‘No Guidance’ hitmaker thought was about their new arrival.
Ammika posted on her Instagram story on Thursday (21.11.19): “I was in love when I first saw you.”
And Chris shared an image of himself with the caption “11-20-2019”, which fans thought was his son’s birth date, as well as the second image of himself wearing a hoodie emblazoned with the word “born”.
The news came after it was reported in August that the pair were due to welcome a baby boy, following their split earlier this year.
It was also claimed at the time that Ammika and Chris “are getting along well” and Chris is looking after her “financially, medically and emotionally”.
In June, Chris hinted at his baby news on social media, referring to Ammika as his “baby mama”.
Meanwhile, last year, Chris agreed to “significantly” increase his child support payments to Nia Guzman.
The ‘Loyal’ hitmaker had been paying his former partner $2,500 a month to support their daughter Royalty, and he agreed to increase the sum considerably following months of discussions in mediation.
The musician reportedly also agreed to buy a house for Nia and to pay over $100,000 of her legal fees.
