It's been a crazy 24 hours in the world of Cardi B.
After posting a confessional video on Instagram announcing that she and her husband Offset were separated late Tuesday evening (December 4), the "I Like It" rapper shared the first ever full photo of her daughter, Kulture. "My heart," she simply titled the snapshot of a her pink-clad baby gazing longingly at someone who's not in the frame while lounging in her carseat.
The photo is interesting for a few reasons. First of all, the timing. Could her Migos ex be a reason why she was reluctant to share a photo of their child before now? Secondly is just that: reluctance. The new mama had made it clear she had no intentions of showing Kulture to the world. "My baby is beautiful, she looks like a real baby doll. I can't even believe I made something so beautiful... [But] even if [your] baby [is] pretty or not there's always going to be Internet trolls and [they] will say mean sh*t just for clout," she explained.
Regardless of the reason behind her change of heart, we're so happy to finally see what Kulture Kiari Cephus looks like.
Peep the photo below.
Cardi and Offset welcomed Kulture into the world in July, after secretly wedding last September. Now, just over a year after saying "I do," the couple is calling it quits.
"So everybody been bugging me and everything. And you know, I been trying to work things out with my baby father for a hot minute now. We're really good friends and you know we're really good business partners... He's always somebody that I run to, to talk to and we got a lot of love for each other but things just haven't been working out between us for a long time," Cardi shared in her video. "It's nobodies fault it's just I guess we grew out of love."
Though seemingly amicable, hours before Cardi made her announcement, inappropriate text messages between Offset and rapper Cuban Doll leaked, implying that the Migos star may not have been faithful to his wife. The alleged conversation went down in June, while Cardi was still pregnant.
As for Offset's thoughts on the whole situation? He believes public opinion may be to blame for his failed marriage. "Y'all won," he somberly commented on Cardi's video.
