Cardi B’s Journey: From Stripper to Number 1 Artist and Proud Mother
Cardi B and her husband Offset recently welcomed their first child together – a baby girl. The little baby Kulture Kiari Cephus is Cardi’s first ever child. She broke the news through an Instagram post. And people are more than just thrilled for her.
The couple got married back in October last year. This April, Cardi B announced her pregnancy to the public. Previously, she had been keeping it a secret. But her visible baby bump during a TV appearance made it very obvious. She performed at Coachella, but had to cancel out on a couple of other tours because of her pregnancy.
The newly turned rapper Cardi B has gained a lot of popularity and success shortly. She became one of the biggest new stars on the US musical landscape. And she also returned to number one on the US Singles Chart with her ‘I Like It’. Considering that previously Cardi B was a stripper, and has faced abusive relationships, it must have been a terrible ordeal for her before she became a successful artist. But throughout all this, she has maintained her reputation of being honest, real and hilarious.
Cardi B has left behind her career as a stripper, and is embracing her new relationship with Offset and most importantly her motherhood. But so many out here won’t let it go easy on her. No wonder she chose to keep her pregnancy a secret for as long as she could. In a radio interview, and a deleted Instagram post Cardi B herself acknowledged that she delayed bringing out the news because of haters. Her post read,
This is why i did not wanted [sic] to say nothing. People be so thirsty to scrutinize and try to destroy something that it suppose to be a blessing.
Further, she was actually put off with people questioning her pregnancy decision just because she was at her peak time in career.
While getting back to such comments Cardi B added that,
Why can’t I have both? Why do I have to be in my mid-30’s to have a baby? What am I doing wrong? I’m a grown woman. … I’m 25 years old, and I’m going to say this in the most humblest way, I’m a millionaire. I’m established.
People, especially the internet has already been pretty hard on Cardi B. Many are quick to jump to judgments about her personal decisions.

But once Cardi B gave her statements on radio, so many supporters backed her up. And people are sending all their love to her.
Why’d this make me tear up?? Like she’s just a young girl trying to live her life & if she wants a baby, she can have a baby. She’s so realistic about it too. Ugh, so much love to Cardi. https://t.co/m5YOPRKPd1

I'm with it, nothing is impossible. Strong independent women raise children on their own and do an amazing job, they still persevere. She's got a career, a fiancé, and money, why y'all expect any less from her? https://t.co/lTuWmA0S10
