The rise of Cardi B's celebrity status and the announcement of her pregnancy correlated with each other earlier this year. Just as Cardi B was earning more and more followers, she was getting ready to have her first baby-- and the child was delivered a few months ago. The musician understandably opted not to go on tour, despite incredible record sales, in order to raise her baby Kulture. And she has made a strong effort to keep the young child away from the media's attention. That tradition continues to this day, although Cardi has certainly been tempted by high-paying offers in recent weeks.
I got offered seven figures [for baby pictures], but I'm just not ready yet.
During a conversation with Ebro Darden on Beats 1 Radio, Cardi B claimed that she has been getting very, very high offers from people wanting to see baby pictures of Kulture. But the chart-topping artist doesn't think it's the right time to release these infant photos to the public, opting instead to wait. With Cardi B's ever-rising fame at the moment, there are several people who want to get a glimpse of the baby. But Cardi B wants the time to be right.
Celebrity child rearing can be a difficult thing. While there are several celeb children who make their way into the limelight, there are also other high profile kids whose parents would rather keep themselves out of any notoriety. In any case, Kulture is just a baby, and there are some things that are best kept private. That includes the family lives of famous celebrities, particularly as the child is in the very early development stages of growing up. Cardi B wants to respect that and keep the baby away from the flashing bulbs of the media's cameras for now.
There's certain things I want to do with my daughter. Like, I want to go to the beach with my baby, I want to take a stroll down the street with my baby. And I can't, because I don't know who's next to me, or who has certain intentions. I don't wanna show my baby out to the public right now, I just want to protect her. I'm not mentally ready. [But] paparazzi be everywhere, like even in my asshole. I would like to do normal things with my baby, but right now I gotta keep it very low key.
The time will come when baby Kulture is introduced to the world. But that time hasn't come yet, and Cardi B wants to keep it that way for now.
