Cardi B is officially a mom!
The rapper and husband Offset welcomed their first child, a baby girl, on Tuesday, July 10. Their daughter’s name is Kulture Kiari Cephus, taking her father’s first and last name. (Offset’s real moniker is Kiari Kendrell Cephus, while Cardi’s is Belcalis Almanzar.)
The proud new mom announced the news with a stunning nude pregnancy shoot on Instagram this morning.
Baby Kulture’s name is also likely a tribute to Offset’s rap trio, Migos, who released highly successful albums titled Culture and Culture II in 2017 and 2018, respectively.
After months of speculation, Cardi first confirmed she was expecting in April during a performance on Saturday Night Live. She revealed her growing baby bump while she was on stage in a form-fitting white dress.
Since then, the outspoken rapper has openly shared her pregnancy journey with her fans on social media, whether it’s a bump-baring OOTD post or an update on her struggles preparing for birth.
Cardi recently hosted an over-the-top baby shower for her incoming little girl at the end of June. The soirée was “Bronx fairytale”-themed, and the mom-to-be wore a bodycon pink dress for the occasion.
Cardi and Offset secretly married in September 2017, though he publicly got down on one knee a month later. The lowkey nuptials took place in the couple’s bedroom in Atlanta. She revealed on Twitter, “One morning in September we woke up and decided to get married. We found someone to marry us, and she did, just the two of us and my cousin 😂. I said I do, with no dress no make up and no ring!”
Offset also has three children—two sons and a daughter—from previous relationships, reports The Sun.
Congrats to the happy couple!
