In addition to having two stars for parents, Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose’s newborn son, Sebastian “The Bash” Taylor Thomaz, also has some pretty cool celebs in his extended family. According to a tweet from his mom on Monday, young Sebastian will know "Jet Life" spitta Curren$y as his godfather.

"Yay! I'm so excited 4 Sebastian 2 meet his godfather @CurrenSy_Spitta today!" said Rose via her Twitter. "This Lil boy has so much family & Love... It's such a blessing." Curren$y and Khalifa have shared a long friendship in the public eye, famously bonding over their shared love of marijuana. The pair teamed up for the How Fly mixtape in 2009 and have been collaborating ever since.

"He's a king..... The family is royal .... See yall soon," said Curren$y in reply to Amber’s tweet. The couple has gotten love from across the hip hop universe, including pubic well wishes from friend Rihanna, Russell Simmons and Snoop Lion.

Bash was born on February 21, three days before his due date, and his father announced the news to the world via Twitter. “Happy Birthday Sebastian "The Bash" Taylor Thomaz!!!,” Wiz said. “Everyone welcome this perfect young man into the world."

Khalifa released his second studio album O.N.I.F.C. December 4, 2012, on Atlantic Records. It sold 148,000 copies in its first week, debuting at No. 2 on the Billboard 200.
