Ashley Burgos was destined for fame since her mother, Bernice Burgos, is a world-famous internet personality and successful entrepreneur. She followed in the footsteps of her mother and developed similar career of an Instagram model. Let’s find out more about Ashley’s personal life, boyfriend, daughter, etc.
Early life, family
Ashley Marie “Amarie” Burgos was born under the sign of Taurus on 9 May 1996, in New York City USA. She is the daughter of Bernice Burgos, an Instagram model, internet personality and entrepreneur. Bernice was only 15 years old when she gave birth to Ashley, while Ashley’s father was 19 years old – his name is still unknown since both Ashley and Bernice hide this information from their audience. Bernice had hard times raising Ashley as she was too young to handle all responsibilities with the baby – she once admitted that Ashley’s father had problems with the law and was jailed several times, so in fact she has always been a single mom. However, Bernice did her best and managed to raise Ashley and get a well-paid job, pursuing her online career. Ashley has a younger sister named Sarai, who is ten years younger than Ashley. As for her ethnicity, she is Puerto Rican, and so holds American nationality.
There is no particular information about Ashley’s educational background, except that she matriculated from her high school in 2014; neither Ashley, nor Bernice have shared any information about college or university Ashley might enter.
Ashley started her career very early – she became a model for her mother’s sleepwear line and appeared in the pages of the online store called “Bold&Beautiful”. She is also an Instagram model, now with over 240,000 subscribers. She started posting her photos there in 2015, but soon understood she could make her Instagram account her model portfolio, so started uploading professional shots and rapidly increased her number of followers. Besides modelling for her mother’s sleepwear line, she signed a contract with another clothing brand called “Fashion Nova”, and often shares sponsored posts tagging the brand. She also promotes the “Hair by Neecy” hairdresser, who sells hair extensions and installs remy hair into one’s own hair.
Personal life, ex-boyfriend Sambou “Bubba” Camara, daughter India Ava
For a long period of time Ashley dated Sambou Camara, a well-known R&B artist also known as “Bubba”. Ashley became pregnant to him, and enjoyed their baby-shower party decorated in the Aladdin theme, posting many photos from that event. Ashley gave birth to their daughter India Ava on 17 February 2018, but then broke. Sambou now posts the photos and videos of India on his Instagram account, writing that he misses his daughter, but Ashley deleted all their mutual photos from her Instagram account. Ashley now raises India by herself, although Sambou is said to pay an impressive amount of alimony – he often shares pictures on his Instagram of the huge amounts of cash he holds in his hands. Both, Ashley and Sambou are now single – neither have announced any new partners.
Hobbies and interesting facts
Although Ashley is very busy with her modelling, she loves spending as much spare time at home as she can with her mother and her daughter. She likes reading and dancing, even taking her one-year-old daughter to dancing classes with her.
Social media presence
Ashley is very active on her Instagram account which has almost 250,000 followers – her profile also helps to promote her model career. She doesn’t have any Twitter or Facebook accounts. Her mother Bernice has even more subscribers – her Instagram account has over 5.2 million! Bernice’s Twitter is read by more than 120,000 people, and her Facebook profile is followed by over 124,000 fans.
Ashley has long black hair and bark-brown eyes. She is 5ft 1ins (1.55m) tall, weighs around 110lbs (50kgs, and her vital statistics are 36-25-40. Ashley has never confirmed any surgery, but her fans insist they noticed the changes in the form of her hips, so she probably underwent some plastic surgery. As for her clothing style, Ashley loves wearing dresses and one-piece suits from the brand Fashion Nova, which she is not promoting on her Instagram account. Ashley has several tattoos on her shoulders depicting roses and tulips, and a big tattoo of a crying female face on her back.
Authoritative sources estimate Ashley’s net worth to be over $1.1 million, accumulated by modelling from a young age, and by helping her mother with their sleepwear brand “Bold&Beautiful”. She is still very active on her Instagram account, and has multiple commercial contracts with various brands, so her net worth is only going to grow.
