Another addition! After welcoming her daughter Kulture in 2018, Cardi B and Gap continued to expand his family with his son Wave.
The on-and-off couple got engaged in 2017 after being linked earlier that year. They married in 2018, shortly before the arrival of their first child. Offset, for his part, also shares his son Jordan with his ex Justine Watsonson kody with ex Oriel Jamie and her daughter Kalea with her ex Shya Love.
Cardi has already reflected on how her stepchildren enrich her own family with the Migos member.
“When I was pregnant with Kulture, a lot of people [were] like, ‘Oh, he already has three kids; why would you have a child with someone who [has] three children?’ And it’s like, how is that such a bad thing? she explained to vogue in January 2020. “My dad has eight kids, and we’re all getting along, and it’s better, more satisfied. And with Offset, I feel like his kids bring a touch of fun to life when they’re at his house. I really like. It brings out another side of him that I love seeing, and I love seeing my baby interact with his siblings. More the merrier, the merrier.”
The New York native also opened up about finding the right “balance” when it comes to motherhood. “It’s good for the mind. For example, if I play with my daughter, I forget the problems,” she shared. “I’m giving my daughter so much love and setting her up for a future,” Cardi told the magazine. “I want to tell him that a lot of things I’ve done in life – no matter what I’ve done, knowing that I wanted to have kids made me work harder to ensure a good future for my kids. “
Prior to the birth of their son, Cardi and Offset went through a separation in December 2018 and again in September 2020, but the songwriter withdrew her divorce petition in November 2020.
During a joint performance at the BET Awards in June 2021, the couple announced Cardi’s second pregnancy. At the time, the Grammy winner discussed getting closer to Offset as they waited for their newest family member.
“No. 2! We listened to each other, communicated, prayed, and then God blessed us and our family with another small blessing. Our home is so happy and very busy, but we are ready and so happy,” she wrote via Instagram.
Cardi added a photo of herself with her daughter Kulture’s hand on her baby bump, writing, “I just know these two have been going to love each other so much and fight so much since they were three years old. But one thing is for sure, they will support each other like no one else ever will.
After welcoming her second child in September 2021, Cardi praised Offset for being a “hands-on” dad. “Sometimes it just gets too convenient,” she said hello america in November 2021. “I’m like, ‘Look, I got it. I know what I’m doing too. This isn’t my first rodeo anymore.
Three months later, Cardi B detailed her son’s defining moments. “I’m not exaggerating, this baby is talking,” she said via her Instagram Story in January 2022. “I put that on everything I love. Yesterday I was like, ‘Do you love mommy? Yeah ?’ Then I asked him again, “Do you love mommy?” And he said, ‘Yeah!’ »
