During a surprise interview with live radio appStationhead Tuesday, the pregnant rapper, 28, explained why she’s not having a baby shower for her second child with her husband Offset.
“I’m not having a baby shower. That’s why I did Kulture’s birthday really, really big,” she said. “I just get overwhelmed when I do these big birthdays and I just feel like the baby shower with Kulture’s birthday is just too close. Just to see the same people over again, and it’s like, not doing it.”
Cardi and the Migos member, 29, share daughter Kulture, 3, and recently celebrated her July 10 birthday with a lavish fairytale-themed party. The big bash included an outdoor petting zoo, a balloon tunnel, Disney princesses, a towering birthday cake, a ball pit, bowling lanes and more.
Mom and daughter matched in pink princess gowns, while Offset sported a black and white three-piece suit without a jacket. The family arrived in a Cinderella-inspired horse-drawn carriage, and the birthday girl entered her celebration on a pony.
Though the Grammy winner hasn’t disclosed her due date, the proud mom is savoring every moment as a family of three. On her daughter’s third birthday, she posted a sweet throwback photo from when Kulture was just one month old.
“Forever my little baby 💛⭐️🥺My cancer queen 👑,” Cardi captioned the Instagram post.
Also during her appearance on the Stationhead show, the “WAP” rapper revealed how she told her husband that she was expecting.
After she began showing pregnancy symptoms two weeks before the Grammys — Cardi said she noticed her “mouth started to get watery” and she was experiencing headaches and carsickness — she simply told her husband, “I think I’m pregnant, bro!”
She later confirmed the pregnancy after taking a test. Offset is also dad to daughter Kalea, 6, and sons Kody, 6, and Jordan, 11, from previous relationships.
“We just started laughing like, ‘Lord, we have so much to do,’ ” she recalled.
The star also expressed her excitement for her baby on the way, saying, “There is something so dear about this pregnancy and I feel like I’m starting a new chapter, and I’m happy about that.”
Cardi revealed the pregnancy news while performing with Offset and Migos at the BET Awards in June. After the trio finished “Straightenin,” Cardi joined the group for “Type S—.” Appearing onstage in an embroidered Dolce & Gabbana bodysuit, a sheer panel in the abdomen exposed her burgeoning belly.
