This celebrity kid isn’t even in the double-digits yet but he already knows about the birds and the bees.
“I’m not hiding nothing from my son. My son knows what a period is,” model Amber Rose, 37, said Wednesday as a guest on the Facebook Watch show “Red Table Talk.”
Rose discussed how open she is with son Sebastian “Bash” Taylor Thomaz about her menstrual cycle. “He’ll come in the bathroom, and just be like this,” she said, smiling, “and be like, ‘Mommy, do you have your period?’” Even if she tells him she doesn’t, he’ll ask if she needs a tampon or a pad.
She doesn’t feel like Bash — whose name she had tattooed on her forehead in February — is too young for her to be open about the topic.
“Once he hits 13 and the girls in his classroom are getting their periods and the boys are like, ‘That’s disgusting, she’s bleeding,’ he’ll be like, ‘That’s nothing … I knew that since I was 6 years old, dude; get with the program.’ ”
Rose opened up about their honest chats to “Red Table” hosts Jada Pinkett Smith, 49, her daughter, Willow Smith, 19, and her mother, Adrienne Banfield-Norris, 67, as well as fellow episode guest Rumer Willis, 32.
She told them that educating her son so early about often-taboo topics has made him eager to learn more. “He’s very curious now,” Rose went on.
She’s also been frank with Sebastian about consent when it comes to touching women’s bodies.
“He’s like, ‘Mom, you’ve got a jiggly butt,’ and he’ll just come behind me and jiggle my butt,” she said, to which she responds by gently telling him, “That’s my private area, and you don’t touch Mommy’s private area, OK?”
He understands, she said, and he also gets that the same applies to other women — including when he’s at dad Wiz Khalifa’s house. “His dad’s a rapper,” she said, noting with subtle shade that while she believes she and ex-husband Khalifa co-parent very well, “it’s a different dynamic over there.”
