Cardi B won’t have a baby shower for her second pregnancy: ‘Not doing it’


Cardi B recently threw a huge, excessive princess-themed birthday party for her daughter Kulture. To be fair, it seemed like Offset was involved in the planning, and he was right there celebrating his little princess too. Kulture is three years old now and just about to become a big sister. We don’t know when Cardi’s second child is due, but it will probably be in the next few months. And Cardi says that after the princess party, she’s not having a baby shower for her second pregnancy:

During a surprise interview with live radio app Stationhead Tuesday,Cardi B, 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.

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!”

“Just to see the same people over again” cracked me up. She’s like “I just saw them at my daughter’s birthday, I don’t need to see ‘em again for six months.” I would imagine that Cardi was trying to give Kulture a really special day because Cardi is perhaps nervous about how Kulture will react to having a little brother or sister. As for not having the baby shower… I mean, it’s her call, and she can afford to buy all of the baby gear she would have gotten at a baby shower anyway. Ideally, someone should host the baby shower for her so she doesn’t have to plan her own shower anyway. But she’s probably told friends and family she doesn’t want one. And that goes along with baby-shower etiquette too – most people don’t believe in having big showers or any showers for the second/third/fourth babies.

      Omg thats the detail for me too! My daughter is a few months younger than Kulture and she isn’t in to princesses but now I want to have a princess party and dress up our two German shepherds and the husky as princesses. I’ll squeal, my husband will roll his eyes, but I can guarantee my girl will say “wow pretty woofs”

      ROFL. And people wonder why little dogs are divas.

    Cardi is a most spectacular person. I sincerely hope offset gets his s*** together.

    I know Cardi is one of the biggest artists but everyone I see her I just feel sad for her. She has a cheating husband, toxic back and forth marriage, her plastic surgery looks awful and it’s not going to age well at all. Her daughter is adorable and I hope she is happy but I never get that vibe.

    She doesn’t know that she’s not supposed to throw her own baby shower? Okaaaayyyyyyy…..

    Honestly baby showers f*cking suck, so good for her.

    • Lawcatb says:

      Agreed! They’re a lot of work and stress (even if the expectant mother isn’t technically throwing it), and if we’re being honest, they’re not a lot of fun. The only reason to have one is for the gifts. If you don’t need those, I say don’t bother.

    • Robyn says:

      Lol! Best comment!

    • Willow says:

      I always enjoyed baby showers. But it was the meals people dropped off after the baby was born that was the best. Do that instead of a party.

      • JanetDR says:

        So much better and more practical. I’m sure she has all of the baby things she needs.
