Amber Rose has revealed that she is suffering from hyperemesis – the same condition Amy Schumer and Kim Kardashian had during their pregnancies.
The model – who announced in April that she was expecting her second child, the first with new beau A.E. Edwards – explained her diagnosis in depth in a natural make-up free video shared to her Instagram on Monday.
‘For people who don’t know what it is, it’s basically extreme nausea, vomiting and dehydration,’ the 35-year-old announced.
In her new video, Amber began by detailing her hopes to ‘document’ her second pregnancy more than her first one.
The star – who is mum to Sebastian, 6, who she shared with rapper ex Wiz Khalifa – admitted that she wasn’t able to capture precious pregnancy moments the first time around because she suffered from hyperemesis then too.
Hyperemesis is a pregnancy complication with severe nausea and vomiting that sometimes leads to weight loss.
Amber added: ‘I can eat a little bit more now, cause I’m in my second trimester, but not much, and I pretty much sleep all day.’
‘I try to be cute and get my hair done, and I just slept in it and messed it up,’ Rose said with a laugh while playing with her hair.
‘But all in all, babies are a blessing, and God bless women, man. We are resilient, we get through it. You know, it’s really, really hard being pregnant,’ Rose said candidly.
‘To all the women out there who just pop out babies like it’s nothing, God bless you guys, because, oh my God, it’s a lot,’ she added.
‘I wanna be out, I wanna be cute, I wanna show off my belly, I just can’t get off this couch. Like, I’m tired and I just wanna barf all day,’ she said of the hyperemesis.
‘It’s just not fun, but it’s totally worth it,’ she added with a smile.
She also gave a shout-out to her beau, record executive A.E. Edwards, stating, ‘I love you honey,’ before showing fans her belly.
‘It’s probably gotten bigger since the last time I showed you,’ she added. ‘Excuse all the lint, like I said, I’ve just been on this couch.’
‘Yeah, shout-out to A.E., he’s so amazing, he takes care of me so well. He’s amazing. He’s awesome. He’s such a good guy,’ Rose enthused.
She added that he was currently out with ‘his boys,’ and that she wanted him to go out because he, ‘does so much for me’ that he should ‘go have a good time with your boys.’
She then thanked her fans, saying, ‘I love you guys and I’ll come back and give you another update soon.’
