Heather and longtime love, Taylor Hubbell, welcomed newborn son Elijah, their first child, on Saturday, September 28. To celebrate, Heather’s pal and former roommate Ash got a few of Heather and Taylor’s friends to record an amazing rap song — appropriately titled, “Welcome, Elijah” — in honor of the little tyke.
“Hey, hey, Elijah, welcome to the world,” Ashley sings, along with enough hilarious autotune to make T-Pain proud. “You are a big baby, big baby baby baby boy,” sings another friend. Seriously, we’re now wishing that someone had recorded a rap to celebrate our birth. Life just isn’t fair sometimes.
Heather and Ash have been friends for quite some time, and they’ve also been co-workers, as they appeared together in the recent hit film Spring Breakers. Come to think of it, if you were wishing Heather’s hilarious part in that film should have been a lot bigger, you’re not alone.
And while we’re bummed that Heather will likely miss all of Glee Season 5 as she cares for little Elijah, we know that she will be an amazing mom. So congrats to Heather and Taylor! And also, congrats to Ash on jump-starting your career in the rap game. We expect big things.
