Posting a photo of her pregnant self on Instagram on June 11, Cardi wrote, “Kulture Kiari Cephus 07/10/18″. Fans think the name of the baby is a reference to Offset’s 2017 album Culture. The K at the start of Kulture could be a reference to Offset’s real name, which is Kiari Kendrell Cephus. In the picture she posted, Cardi is wearing no clothes, and is surrounded by dozens of colorful flowers. According to TMZ, Offset was there at the hospital with Cardi when she gave birth.
