It’s been months since Cardi B gave birth to her first child, a daughter named Kulture Kiari, with husband Offset, and the 26-year-old rapper has successfully kept her baby girl out of the spotlight. “I’m scared of sharing her to the world. There are too many mean people out there,” she said in November, adding, “I want to protect her! She’s my little buggy.”
But last night, shortly after sharing news of the split from her husband, Cardi B shared the very first photo of Kulture with the world, and she is a ray of sunshine. In the photo posted to Cardi B’s Instagram account, the super cute four-month-old sits in her car seat wearing a striped bib with her name on it. The post is simply captioned: “My Heart.”
The excited that ensued comes as no surprise. Friends and fans flooded her comment section with positive messages, and the post has nearly eight million likes less 24 hours later.
The reveal follows the couple confirming their separation after one year of marriage. “So everybody been bugging me and everything,” she said on Instagram, addressing rumors about her relationship. “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 we’re really good business partners, but things just haven’t been working out between us for a long time.”
She continued, “And it’s nobody’s fault. It’s just like I guess we grew out of love. But we’re not together anymore. I don’t know, it might take time to get a divorce. And I’m going to always have a lot of love for him because he is my daughter’s father and yeah.”
Offset later commented on the post, writing, “Y’all won.”
While we’re sad hear of the split, we are happy to see Cardi B recognizing what she gained from the relationship: a beautiful baby girl — and business partner! Keep the adorable photos of Kulture and hit tracks coming, you two!
