Cardi B is receiving all the love from her colleagues after the birth of her son.
Yesterday, the rapper took to her Instagram story to show off a heartwarming baby gift given to her by singer Selena Gomez.
In the clip, Cardi B displayed a gigantic gift basket packed with several lovely things alongside an adorable stuffed elephant for her baby boy, whom she called “son son.” The “WAP” crooner gushed about the thoughtful items, saying:
I got this beautiful gift basket … with this little bear from Selena Gomez. It’s so cute and it’s got treats for me when, you know, I’m rocking the baby to sleep at night, you know I get hungry in the night time.
She concluded, thanking Gomez and calling her “adorable.” The duo first formed a connection after collaborating on the 2018 song “Taki Taki” and have since been each other’s corners.
A Good Friendship
In March, the rapper came out to support the former Disney child star when Gomez shared that she found it challenging to keep up with music because people don’t take her seriously.
Cardi B took to Twitter to encourage the “Lose You To Love Me” crooner, saying that she doesn’t think Gomez should retire because she makes good music and fans love her.
The 28-year-old rapper advised Gomez to go for one more era and promised to give her ideas to make her come back like nothing her fans have ever seen before.

Cardi B explained that she defended Gomez because she was a “sweetheart in person.” She then clapped back at haters who picked celebrities apart.
Cardi Welcomes Son!

The rapper uploaded a photo of her and Offset cradling their newborn and staring sweetly at him in the hospital. The accompanying caption stated the date of his birth, September 4. The little bundle of joy joins big sister Kulture Kiari.

In a social media update, the actress showed off her “pouchy” stomach, assuring fans that her body was still going through the changes after a difficult delivery.
She encouraged other pregnant women and new mothers to take their time and revel in their bodies without the undue pressure to return to their former sizes.
