R&B Singer Ameriie Announces Birth Of First Child With Husband By Sharing First Adorable Photo

Ameriie celebrated Father’s Day by introducing her son to the world.

Ameriie Mi Marie Rogers, (known originally as Amerie before changing her singing name to match her real name), surprised fans when she took to social media to share the first photo of her adorable newborn son, River Rowe, with husband Lenny Nicholson.

The "One Thing" singer and her husband of six years welcomed their son last month, but is just getting around to telling her fans the exciting news. 

The singer took to Instagram to debut her beautiful baby boy, River Rowe, along with a sweet caption.

Ameriie wrote, "1 magical month later… | River Rowe Charles L. Nicholson ❤️🐯 God blessed us with our baby boy May 15th, 2018. River, we love you and we’re so honored to be your parents, to be your foundation and your rock in this thing called life. God bless you, our beautiful son. #RiverRowe #MommysLilCupcake."

The 38-year-old singer revealed she was expecting her first child back in January on her birthday. She was 21 weeks along in her pregnancy at that time and told fans the baby news was the best birthday gift ever.

Ameriie tied the knot with Lenny, a former Columbia Records executive, in July 2011 in a destination ceremony in Anguilla.
Love of my life. I did, I do, I always will. ❤️❤️ #MeandtheMr #June25,2011

Fans may recall that Ameriie was previously rumored to be "Becky with the good hair" when Beyonce's album, Lemonade, was released in 2016. 


Many fans believed that Ameriie was Jay-Z's 'other woman', due to their career rivalry in the past.  

Ameriie finally addressed the crazy rumors during an interview with "The Breakfast Club", appearing to be surprised that she was Hova's alleged mistress. "Really? I never, ever heard that," she said. 

The "1 Thing" singer was then asked if she thought Beyoncé’ copied her style, after hiring Amerie’s producer and releasing several songs that were similar to Amerie’s live band feel at that time.

Ameriie said, "No, I wouldn’t say that. A lot of people are going to say different things, but it’s like what I was saying — artists, we’re all in dialogue with each other. We’re not on an island…We were on the same label but I don’t think that did anything. I know, Jay [Jay Z] really liked my album."


Ameriie has also been plagued by rumors that her husband was the reason she wasn't as active in the music scene.
The singer explained that the reason was actually due to label changes and nothing to do with Lenny.


She explained, "Going from label to label, that’s part of it. It always took so long…For me, I would record an album and by the time we’re ready to put it out …I was like I’m on to the next thing. …He’s [Lenny] actually very supportive…Actually, he helped a lot of things. '1 Thing' really came from his involvement."


Congrats to Ameriie and Lenny on the birth of their precious baby boy!
