In One Tweet, Cardi B Explains Her Migos-Inspired Baby Name

In case you’re wondering where Cardi B and Offset’s new baby’s name came from, leave it to Cardi to give it to you straight. “Anything else woulda been basic” was the “I Like It” rapper’s explanation for her baby’s name, Kulture Kiari Cephus.

Cardi announced on July 11 via nude pregnancy photos that she had given birth to her first child with her husband Offset. In April, she appeared on The Ellen Show to talk about her SNL pregnancy reveal and said that Offset came up with the name. “My dude named the baby,” she said. “I really like the name. It’s like almost tricky, but when it comes out, it’s like ‘Ah!’”

Kiara comes from Offset’s real name, Kiari Kendrell Cephus. Some fans were wondering if Kulture came from Migos’ last two albums, 2017’s Culture and this year’s Culture II. But Cardi tweeted simply, “Kulture anything else woulda been basic Okrrrrr” But the rapper also unofficially confirmed her name inspiration when she posted a photo set to the music of Migos’ song “Higher We Go” with the line, “Higher we go, beg and plead for the culture.”

It was yesterday that Cardi B announced on Instagram the birth of her baby girl, with a beautiful (and very floral) nude pregnancy photo captioned with “Kulture Kiara Cephus 07/10/18.” Offset followed suit posting another nude (this time draped in silk) photo captioned with their baby’s name and birth date.

Kulture :’)…no better feeling ❤️?

TMZ reported that Kulture Kiari will be lounging in major style, with a Fendi stroller, a Versace changing bag, and a Givenchy teddy bear. The new parents spent somewhere in the range of $7,000 at Couture Kids, a West Hollywood baby boutique. The Blast reported that not long after the birth of Kulture, Nicki Minaj gifted the baby and her parents a $5,000 gift basket that she requested be made “as girly as possible.”
