Ah, motherhood! Cardi B, who is mom to two-year-old Kulture Kiari Cephus, knows all about the joys and challenges of being a mama — and one of them is being interrupted by your toddler when you’re trying to take a thirst trap!
In a hilarious and adorable video posted by Cardi on November 20, we see the musician filming a video in a low-cut black corset top, green and black wig, and bright green eyeshadow, flirting with the camera. She plays with her hair and glasses, and bites a green-painted fingernail. Then, all of a sudden, a tiny voice can be heard, interrupting the moment. “Mommy?” Kulture asks off camera. Cardi stops and asks her daughter, “Yes?” Then Kulture appears, just for a moment, ready for the spotlight. “I can’t even be sexy in peace,” Cardi captioned the cute video. Aww! Plus, as any parent — or anyone with younger siblings or nieces and nephews — knows, when there’s a video screen in the vicinity, you’re probably going to get a child-friendly cameo or two!
Kulture’s video crashing aside, the mother and daughter are a truly dynamic duo. Not only does little Kulture have her very own Instagram account where Cardi documents her outfits and escapades, the two also love hitting the town in matching outfits and doing fashion shoots. Kulture even gifted her mom a billboard for her birthday!
Cardi has spoken about how motherhood has changed her and guided her career decisions before. “All the time I’m thinking about my kid. I’m shaking my ass, but at the same time I’m doing business, I’m on the phone with my business manager saying, make sure that a percentage of my check goes to my kid’s trust,” she told Vogue in 2019. “I give my daughter so much love, and I’m setting her up for a future. I want to tell her that a lot of the sh*t that I have done in life—no matter what I did, knowing that I wanted to have kids made me go harder to secure a good future for my kids.” It sure seems like Kulture is ready to follow in her mom’s footsteps to musical superstardom. When is the album dropping?
