The announcement marks Cardi’s second pregnancy. She and Offset first welcomed their child Kulture Kiari Cephus in 2018 and the mother and daughter have already graced covers of Vogue, being shot by none other than famed legendary photographer, Annie Leibovitz. Following her appearance on stage with Migos, Cardi then took to Instagram and Twitter to confirm the news, sharing an incredible image by photographers AB+DM. In the photographs, Cardi looks ever the royal, strong woman she is. the styling is credited to the rapper’s long-time stylist Kollin Carter who dressed Cardi in a sculptural breastplate by Pakistani artist and designer, Misha Japanwala that was custom-made for the occasion.
There’s also an image of Cardi and Kulture wearing matching white headdresses. “I just know these two will love each other so much and argue so much since they’re three years apart,” she wrote in the caption. “But one thing for sure is they’ll have each other’s back like no one else ever will.”
Cardi might be a goddess onstage and in her performances, but it’s clear from her caption and the way she dotes on Kulture that first and foremost, she’s a loving mum and to see her family expand is an incredibly exciting journey. She added, “We listened to each other, communicated, prayed and then God blessed us and our family with another little blessing. Our home feels so blissful and very busy but we are ready and so happy!! Thank you soo much everyone for the congrats and well wishes.”
