For Cardi B and Offset, first came love... then came marriage...
... now has come a baby in, we presume at some point, a baby carriage.
It's true: Cardi B just gave birth to her first child!
The beloved artist made this very exciting announcement herself, doing so in very Cardi B-like fashion:
Via a naked photo on Instagram, along with the date of the child's birth (yesterday, July 10, 2018) and her gender (a girl) and her unique name: Kulture Kiari.
Yes, Kulture Kiari.
Gotta imagine the Kardashians are either very excited about that name or very angry that Cardi B totally stole their gimmick.
"Kulture Kiari Cephus 07/10/18 @offsetyrn," wrote Cardi B as a caption to the image below.
The rapper kept her pregnancy a secret for months before finally revealing her bump during her stint as a musical guest on an April episode of Saturday Night Live.
“I’m finally free!” the 25-year-old said as she walked off stage from her performance.
Since then, she has talked openly about the pregnancy, as well as about her relationship with Offset.
Heck, she even admitted that she considered an abortion because she learned about the pregnancy, which was NOT planned, at the exact time her career was taking off.
But then Cardi realized the position she's in and explained:
“I just didn’t want to deal with the whole abortion thing. I’m a grown woman, I’m 25 years old, I’m gonna say this in the most humblest way: I’m a schmillionaire. I'm prepared for this."
Cardi and Offset, meanwhile, actually got married in September.
They just didn't tell anyone at the time.
“There are so many moments that I share with the world and then there are moments that I want to keep for myself! Getting married was one of those moments!” she wrote in a Twitter note, adding recently:
“Our relationship was so new breaking up and making up and we had a lot of growing up to do but we was so in love we didn’t want to lose each other."
Offset is the father of three children from previous relationships – two sons, Jordan and Kody; and a daughter Kalea Marie.
Cardi B has been happy to put trolls who question their romance and who question having a child with a multi-time baby daddy in their rightful place.
Wendy Williams, as always, was one of those trolls.
Offset was also caught cheating on Cardi B awhile back, but the singer was able to move past that rather huge obstacle.
"We didn't want to lose each other," Cardi simply said of that issue.
As for whether motherhood will change her schedule? Cardi B has said the following:
"What I envision is my tour bus has my own personal room and I just want to be with my baby. Only time I don't have my baby with me is when I'm getting my hair done, makeup done, performing.
"I don't want to miss one second. I don't want to miss no smiles, I don't want to miss no new movement, I don't want the baby to confuse me and the babysitter."
We love it!
Congrats to the new parents!
