After Cardi B and husband Offset revealed the name and shared the first photos of their second child on Friday, she explained why she waited seven months to do so.
Wave Set Cephus was born on September 4, 2021, and the “WAP” rapper says one reason she and Offset waited so long was the social media abuse aimed at their first child, who’s now three years old.
“We went through a lot of sad things when it comes to Kulture,” Cardi reveals in Essence‘s May/June cover story. “So many people will post mean, disgusting things, just to get a reaction from us.”
As their fifth wedding anniversary approaches in September, the superstar rappers enjoy leading a blended family. In addition to Kulture and Wave, Offset is also a father to three older children from previous relationships: daughter Kalea, 7, and sons Jordan, 12, and Kody, also 7.
Offset loves how his wife has brought all the children into one family.
“It’s a blessing to be able to have them all together, and to have a wife who’s open and treats them as if they’re her kids,” he says. “It could be an issue, but I don’t have to go through that, and that’s beautiful.”
Explaining the key to their successful marriage, the Migos member says, “It might sound weird, but we don’t always put love first — because sometimes you can put love before work and mess up your career.
He adds, “Love is important, but if you’ve got that foundation, we should respect each other and what we have going on. I had never experienced a woman that was working like me and doing what I’m doing. It turns me on. She does her own thing. She likes the hustle, so that ain’t never getting in between our love.”
