Nearly three weeks after welcoming their second child together, Omarion and Apryl Jones have revealed their newborn daughter’s name. Apryl shared the news with fans by posting a photo of the baby’s adorably tiny wrist ordained with a customized name plate. The singer captioned the post: “A’mei (Ah-may) Kazuko Grandberry 3/7/16.”
According to the website fashionstyle.com, “the word ‘Mei’ means beautiful in Chinese and ‘Kazuko’ means harmonious child in Japanese. While difficult to verify, the same website stated that Apryl is of Chinese, Taiwanese, Mongolion, Native American, and African American backgrounds. In November of 2015, the model told VH1 that she and Omarion had picked out a name for their baby girl and dropped a hint, saying: “In my culture it means beautiful harmonious child.”
The couple are already loving parents to their son Megaa, 1 1/2. Shortly before A’mei was born, Apryl shared a photo of her family writing: “I never wanted anything more in life than a family, that I could give everything and more to that I never had. My family is my life, I live for them.”
The couple starred together on Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood. Their pregnancy with Megaa was documented on the show.
