Since giving birth to her first child with husband Offset in July — named Kulture Kiari Cephus — Cardi B has taken a page out of Beyoncé’s book and kept the newborn completely out of the spotlight. There have been no pictures, no videos, no nothing. All that changed Wednesday when the “Money” rapper shared the first-ever photo of her 4-month-old baby girl. And honestly, the internet kan’t handle how kute she is.
Baby Kulture came through dripping in a car seat for all 36 million of Cardi’s followers; rocking a customized bib wit her name on it, a pink headband, and a look of adoration for whatever is hovering above her. As is the natural order, the infant is already trending on Twitter. And if you listen carefully, you can hear my bank account arguing with my ovaries about why having a baby of my own is not a good idea.
Cardi’s big reveal comes less than a day after she announced in a separate Instagram video that she and Offset were no longer together. She insisted that she would always have a lot of love for him because of the child they share. And looking at Kulture, how could she not? Offset replied to the separation announcement with the comment, “Ya’ll won.”
During this year’s MTV VMA’s Cardi trolled us when she opened the show by holding a Moon Man swaddled in a pink blanket, tricking even Offset into thinking she was debuting Kulture on national television. She’s taken a more traditional route by using social media, and my heart-eye emojis are already in formation.
