A day I thought I would never come has finally arrived: Cardi B, after being pregnant for what felt like 6 years, finally gave birth to a daughter. In an Instagram post that is very reminiscent of Beyoncé’s pregnancy announcement—I guess just because both depict naked pregnant women surrounded by a bunch of flowers, so maybe this is a me problem—Cardi B announced that her daughter, Kulture Kiari Cephus, was born yesterday, July 10.
I don’t really have a lot to say about this, except that I cannot believe they named their daughter Kulture. With a K. This is literally the embodiment of that meme that’s like “Dad, why did you name my sister Rose?” “Because we like roses.” “Thanks.” “No problem, Applebee’s.” Except in Cardi B and Offset’s case, it’s going to go something like this:
Kulture: Dad, why did you name me Kulture?
Offset: Because it’s one of daddy’s rap group’s best albums.
How many times do you think this girl will have to hear the phrase “do it for the culture” before she finally snaps? I mean, it’s kind of genius because I bet streams for Culture and Culture II are going to skyrocket. At the same time, Kulture is kind of a weird name, and I’m not even talking about how it’s spelled with a K. Kulture Kiari Cephus kind of sounds like a kind of lab test. And is there a viable nickname for Kulture? Kultch? IDK.
Congrats to Cardi B and Offset, and I can’t wait for the arrival of their next baby, Envasion of Privasy!
