On April 7th, Cardi B announced her pregnancy on Saturday Night Live, during a moving performance of Be Careful — dressed in all white and proudly showing her baby bump. Baby Kulture was born on July 10th, 2018.

A few months later, Cardi B would take to social media to announce she and Offset would be getting a divorce due to allegations of Offset cheating with another woman. Yet, it seemed as if Cardi B’s heart was not going to let go, or at least not so easily and not without some very public back and forths.

Offset posted an Instagram apology, insisting that he did onto cheat on Cardi B, but he had entertained the thought. Social media followers went on the attack harshly criticizing Offset’s behavior, but Cardi B pleaded to her fans that they refrain from bashing the father of her child.

After Offset crashed a live headline performance of Cardi B at the Rolling Loud music festival in Los Angeles, everyone was not only stunned, but certain the couple would not get back together. Even Cardi B made a number of public statements that she and Offset would not reconcile due to the alleged affair.

But, time would seem to heal all wounds, and a reunion was in the work. The 27-year old rapper called off the separation and prepared to move forward with a number of “rules of marriage” in place for the couple.

Offset and Cardi B choose marriage

For any couple, marriage takes hard work, dedication, and love. The couple is now reconciled and working on their marriage and being loving parents to their daughter Kulture.

Cardi B has talked about the grueling pace of being a superstar entertainer and the conflicting schedules that make it difficult to keep a marriage healthy and thriving. In January of 2019, Cardi B and Kulture moved back into the couple’s Atlanta home. 

TMZ has reported that Offset has changed his telephone number to demonstrate his sincerity on making this marriage work. Also, Cardi B has insisted on a “no groupies” lifestyle. And, interestingly, as a sort of indication of where Cardi B may have strayed a bit: She is dedicated to not listening to the social media gossip and trash talk that are so often posted on social media and can make any wife and mother wonder what may be happening on the other coast.

Maybe the most prominent way Offset and Cardi B are working on their marriage is by focusing on their friendship. They both already know that fame isn’t easy. Cardi B has been so open and honest about her and Offset’s struggles, which is just another reason why her fans adore her so much.
