Chris Brown has a son, and his name is Aeko

American singer Chris Brown

Chris Brown’s baby son is called Aeko.

The 30-year-old rapper – who already has five-year-old daughter Royalty with his former partner Nia Guzman – announced on Instagram on Friday that he 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 two haven’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 (November 21, 2019): “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 a 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”.
