Cardi B and rapper Offset welcomed their daughter Kulture Kiari Cephus into the world on Tuesday, July 10. On Wednesday, Cardi officially announced the news on Instagram with a picture of her surrounded by bouquets of flowers.
Beyoncé posted a similar photo last year, when she announced her pregnancy with twins. No doubt, Cardi was inspired by Bey. In her song “Money Bag,” Cardi sings, “with them pretty ass twins, you look like Beyoncé,” which caused speculation about Cardi’s own pregnancy when it dropped.
Then, later on Wednesday, Offset posted another pregnancy photo of Cardi. In it, she’s wearing nothing but a red, silk sheet and some chunky jewelry. The photo was captioned with his daughter’s name and birthday.
Leading up to the birth of Kulture, fans online have been teasing Cardi with a photo of her 5-year-old self. The photo has been turned into a number of memes, and Cardi actually liked one so much she posted it to her account.
“Too funny cause I was a smart ass like this,” she wrote on Tuesday.
“Yaaaa annoying for this. Leave five year old Belcalis [Cardi’s real name] alone,” she wrote on another meme of her formative self.
