What Is Cardi B’s Second Child’s Name?

Cardi B has been making waves and marching to the beat of her own drum since she first burst onto the entertainment scene. She released her debut studio album in 2018, but for years prior to that, the rapper and entertainer had worked as a singer, a reality star, and a social media personality.

Cardi B is well known for her willingness to shock fans with unexpected announcements and big moments — and in June, the rapper took to social media to announce that she was pregnant with her second baby. Just under three months later, Cardi B gave birth to a baby boy. Many fans are curious to hear all the details about the precious new arrival, including what the chart-topping singer decided to name her second baby.

One of the best-selling female artists of all time, Cardi B is responsible for tunes like “WAP,” “Bodak Yellow,” “I Like It,” and “Money.” Fans love Cardi B for her unfiltered personality and her knack for always speaking her mind — whether on political issues or fashion trends. Cardi B has received acclaim from many for her ability to balance work and motherhood, but it’s clear that the artist still has the ability to shock fans.

One shocking moment was at the end of June 2021, when Cardi B took to social media to share a nude photo of herself covered in white paint and cradling a prominent baby bump. Cardi B captioned the photo “#2,” along with a heart emoji, and tagged her husband, fellow rapper Offset. Fans guessed that Cardi B was quite advanced in her pregnancy, based on the size of the baby bump in the photo, but she didn’t reveal an exact due date or offer up any other details about the pregnancy. 

What is Cardi B’s new baby’s name?

Fans didn’t have to wait long to see Cardi B expand her family with Offset. On September 6, Cardi B once again took to social media to share a photo — this time featuring her brand-new baby boy. In the photo, Cardi B can be seen cradling the newborn in a hospital bed, while Offset looks on with a loving expression on his face.

Cardi B captioned the sweet photo “9/4/21” along with three emojis — a dinosaur, a teddy bear, and a blue heart. As reported by Insider, Cardi B and Offset also released a mutual statement, announcing “we are so overjoyed to finally meet our son. He is already loved so much by family and friends and we can’t wait to introduce him to his other siblings.”

One thing that was missing from the social media announcement was any mention of the newborn’s name. In fact, in the days since welcoming their son, Cardi B and Offset have remained mum on their son’s name, and to date, fans don’t know what the baby’s name is.

Cardi B has a daughter named Kulture Kiari

Cardi B’s new son is likely spending his first few weeks of life bonding with his older sister, 2-year-old Kulture Kiari. Cardi B gave birth to Kulture in July 2018, only a few months after she married Offset in a secret ceremony.  Kulture is a regular presence on Cardi B’s social media pages, with Cardi B posting lots of adorable pictures of the toddler in extravagant outfits — and often carrying matching purses. In addition to Kulture, the infant has some siblings through Offset’s previous relationships, named Kalea, Kody, and Jordan, according to Distractify. Could Cardi B and Offset reveal their new son’s name before the holiday season? Fans will have to wait and see.
