Read excerpts from the interview below.
Cardi B, on having her baby with Offset: People want to make fun of me, saying I’m the fourth baby mom….I know I’m not having a baby with a sh*tty-ass man.
Cardi B, on Offset’s reaction to the pregnancy: He was like, ‘What? Are you sure’…I said, ‘Yeah.’ And then he just started smiling really hard.
Cardi B, on the baby being unplanned: He said, ‘What do you mean, what are you going to do? You’re going to keep it.’ A lot of successful women have kids, and a lot of successful artists have kids, but not at the peak of their career.
Cardi B, on the pregnancy being public before she was ready: The media didn’t even let me tell people, and I hated that. I really wanted to tell them [Atlantic Records] myself, to sit down with them and tell everybody that I am pregnant and I have a plan.
Cardi B, on handling her music career and being a new mum: What I envision is my tour bus has my own personal room, and I just want to be with my baby. Only time I don’t have my baby with me is when I’m getting my hair done, makeup done, performing. I don’t want to miss one second. I don’t want to miss no smiles, I don’t want to miss no new movement, I don’t want the baby to confuse me and the babysitter. Just because I’m a mom, my street credibility’s not gone, my sex appeal’s not gone.
Offset, on their lives together: We work. With a day off, we’ll be in bed all day, just enjoying each other’s company. It ain’t about going to no movie, no dinner, nothing. We can go eat McDonald’s or Wendy’s. She might want a chocolate Frosty. We done so much bizarre sh*t with each other – rings and cars and chains. We got that out of the way.
Offset, on their relationship: We really love each other. She’s real. I wanted real. I also wanted successful.
