Cardi B doesn’t have a nanny for nine-day-old Kulture, her family is helping out

2018 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival - Week 2 - Day 2

Cardi B gave birth to a healthy baby girl on July 10th. She named her daughter Kulture Kiari Cephus, which… I still sort of like. I mean, Cardi was never going to name her baby Elizabeth or Mildred, so Kulture is what we get. Considering Kulture isn’t even two weeks old, I think it’s a bit early to speculate about Cardi’s plans to return to work or how she’s going to handle new motherhood with her career. Just let her chill out and rest and enjoy her baby. But Cardi did post an Instagram where she revealed that her family is helping her a lot and that she has no plans to hire a nanny.

Cardi B is marching to the beat of her own parenting drum. The “Drip” rapper thanked her family in an Instagram video for all the help they’ve been providing since she welcomed her baby girl, Kulture.

“I’m a very blessed person. I know y’all see all the blessings that God be giving me in my life, but one thing is that I’ve been blessed since birth,” Cardi B said on Tuesday. “I’ve been blessed since I came out of my mom’s vagina because of my parents. Those are my biggest blessings, and I’m so thankful and I’m so grateful for them….I have not gotten a nanny yet. I just want to learn how to be a mom. I want to enjoy every single second of it since I’m going back to work.”

It must be great for her to have her family close by. She says in the video that her mom hasn’t left her side, her dad has been running errands for her and her sister is there too. That’s wonderful for her. My guess is that she probably doesn’t want to hire a nanny anytime soon, especially with her family so close by, but the nanny situation might change when she’s back on tour, or back to working full-time, whenever that might be. Just let her enjoy the baby, people!

    I’m pleased she said no nanny “yet”. The shaming of women for utilizing child care needs to STOP. Yes she’ll likely need a nanny when she’s touring, she’ll likely need several. And that’s fine.

    Oh and as far as family helping out that is great for awhile. Pretty typical. But unless your family is being compensated that is (and should be) a part-time temporary solution. Presumably they have their own lives.

    I prefer Kiari to Kulture, at least the girl will have cool options!

      Same. I like the sound of ‘Kiari Cephus’, or even ‘Kultura’ Kiari Cephus because that sounds more girly, but to each her own. Glad this is a happy time for her. I love the unique celebrity baby names. Not ‘Pilot Inspector’ though. Ugh.

      Exactly! If she needs the help (and what new mom doesn’t?) and she has the cash, I certainly don’t blame her for getting some professional help to do it.

    I love Cardi!!

    What about her husband’s family?

    And I don’t understand why it’s a bad thing for a working (or unworking) person to get a nanny or whatever help they need to raise a child. It’s literally their own business.

    I mean if a mom goes back to work, who is gonna watch the baby? It’s either daycare or some type of nanny-be it a hired nanny or a relative. I don’t understand the shaming because many women don’t have the luxury of deciding whether they want to return to work. Shaming a mom for getting help to watch their child when the mom returns to work is such a tired argument. A baby can’t be alone for crying out loud and not mother’s or fathers can stay home!

    Cardi’s gratitude and love are an example we should all try to follow. She’s made some bad decisions in life, but she’s got a really kind heart, it seems. Glad she has been supported so well. This was really heartwarming.

    I like her a lot, too.

    Afrodescendientes often (not always of course) creatively name their children since they already have last names like Almanzar, Cephus, and Jones. There are books on this, which explain that the roots of this naming strategy come from resistance to colonization and also enslavement, but also Kulture.
