The couple announced that they were expecting back in June, when Cardi joined Offset’s group Migos for a special performance at the 2021 BET Awards. Their daughter Kulture Kiari Cephus was born in 2018.
Today (September 6), Cardi took to Instagram to share an image of herself, Offest and their new arrival in a hospital bed. Revealing the date of birth, she captioned the photograph “9/4/21” (Saturday, September 4) and signed off with a blue heart emoji.
In a statement provided to Billboard, the rapper confirmed she had given birth to a boy.
“We are so overjoyed to finally meet our son,” it read. “He is already loved so much by family and friends and we can’t wait to introduce him to his other siblings.”
