The rapper broke the great news with a photo of her and Offset in the hospital cradling their newborn alongside a caption that read 9/4/21🦕💙 .” In a separate statement, the doting parents revealed, “We are so overjoyed to finally meet our son.”
However, since welcoming her baby boy, Cardi has been quite mum about the details of her son. She hasn’t shared his name or any photos of the bundle of joy until now. However, it didn’t seem to go well with the internet.
Cardi B Teases Photo Of Baby Son
Yesterday, the “Bodak Yellow” rapper took to Twitter to cry about her son’s teething process. She wrote, “Ugh I wish I can take my sweet baby teething pain away. He has been sad all day.” In no time, fans bombarded the tweet asking Cardi what the toddler looks like and why she hasn’t introduced him to the world.
After much persuasion, Cardi succumbed to the numerous requests and teased fans with a photo. Not giving much detail, Cardi shared an up-close image of her son’s eyes, showing off his lengthy and full eyelashes. Alongside the picture, she wrote, “That’s all y’all will get.”
It didn’t take long for members of the #BardiGang to gush over the infant, with many noting that he strikingly resembled his big sister, Kulture. One fan wrote, “OMG THAT DOES LOOK LIKE KULTURE WOW,” while another added, “omgggg, I can tell he’s Kulture’s twin🥺💗 .”
Others couldn’t help but focus on the toddler’s full lashes, with one netizen writing, “now how do the boys be blessed with long lashes, and we get nothing?”
Many other users focused their energy on asking Cardi to give more details about her beautiful baby boy. One netizen mentioned, “now how about the first letter of his name, or is that too much to ask?
Some Fans Criticize Cardi For Wanting Attention
While most of the comments were positive, some netizens weren’t pleased and bashed Cardi for using her son’s photo to seek attention.
One user who has since deleted the post accused the New York native of trying to steal the spotlight from another female rapper who was trending. However, the netizen didn’t clarify the female rapper that Cardi was trying to steal the spotlight from.

The disappointed rapper didn’t waste time clapping back at the comment and many others. She wrote, “How people mad cause people was asking me to see my son and I replied? It seems like I can’t do or say nothing these days without people getting irritated…maybe I should delete my social medias or just die cause Wtff?”
In a follow-up post, the “Hustlers” star elaborated on the backlash, saying netizens always attribute a controversial reason to her actions.
” If I post it’s cause I want attention, if I speak my mind it’s cause I want attention, if I post a pic I want attention. If I talk about my kids which I’m with everyday it’s cause I want attention…like wtff?” the mother-of-two noted.
Nevertheless, loyal #Bardigang members encouraged the rapper not to pay any mind to the haters and instead flaunt her numerous accomplishments.
A Tattoo Reveal For Her Son’s Name
As The Blast previously reported, Cardi once revealed that she plans to announce her son’s name in an unusual name.
During a discussion with fans, she took to Twitter and wrote, “Random but… I’m 1% close to tatting my son’s name on my face… I really really wanna do it!”

The tweet was met with mixed reviews from fans, with some shutting down the idea. They argued that a tattoo on Cardi’s face might tamper with her impressive beauty.
Others, however, suggested she should go for it as a tribute to her son. One fan even suggested that Offset debut their son’s name tattoo with the rest of his music group, Migos, given their familiarity with facial inkings.
