Rappers Cardi B and Offset welcomed their second child over the weekend. The child, a baby boy, was born on Sept. 4. Cardi shared the news today on Instagram, in a photo that shows her and Offset cradling their new baby while draped under a Louis Vuitton blanket. This is the second child for the couple, who are already parents to 3-year-old daughter Kulture.
Cardi and Offset confirmed the news in a statement to People magazine. “We are so overjoyed to finally meet our son,” they said. “He is already loved so much by family and friends and we can’t wait to introduce him to his other siblings.” In addition to Kulture, Offset has three other children — an 11-year-old son, Jordan, and two six-year-olds: daughter Kalea and son Kody.
“I have an 11-year old, even though I’m 29,” Offset told guest host Stephen “Twitch” Boss on Ellen in mid-June. “I got two six-year-olds; they’re 20 days apart. My beautiful kids.” He credited Cardi for treating his other children with the same love as their mutual kids.
Cardi B revealed her pregnancy during her performance on the BET Awards on June 27. The rap trio Migos did a medley of songs from their newest album Culture III; Quavo, Takeoff, and Offset (Cardi’s husband) were performing their single “Type Shit” when Cardi joined them to perform her blistering verse. Clad in a skintight Dolce and Gabbana bodysuit with a sheer panel displaying a visible bump, Cardi blazed through her bars onstage.
“Once hoes start doing bad, they need somethin’ they can blame it on/Bitches couldn’t be as hot as me in the summertime with a blanket on,” Cardi spat. “All these verses I done slayed, all these looks that I done gave/Could have let these f–k hoes drown, but I let them ride my wave.”
And the wave doesn’t stop. That night, Cardi won Best Collaboration for “WAP”, her controversial combo with fellow rapper Megan thee Stallion. The song’s video also won Video of the Year. Cardi B didn’t stay to accept the honor at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, but Megan Thee Stallion rushed to the stage to pick up the award, according to the Associated Press.
