Cardi B was seven and a half months pregnant when Rolling Stone caught up with her and her husband-to-be, rapper Offset of Migos, in his Atlanta mansion, where they're living while they build a dream home or two. The couple plans to do their version of settling there, where they can build an empire by investing in local businesses and other smart ventures.
The reality-star-turned-rapper is thrilled to be having a daughter with Offset, even though she gets a lot of public flack because he has three other children with three different women.
“People want to make fun of me, saying I’m the fourth baby mom, [but] I know I’m not having a baby with a s***** a** man,” she said in the interview.
She plans on taking her newborn on tour with Bruno Mars in September, and will spend as much time as she can with her on the road.
"What I envision is my tour bus has my own personal room, and I just want to be with my baby," she said. "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."
She will encourage her daughter to do whatever she wants and will give her the choice as to whether she wants to be coddled (or "maintained," as she put it) or to be independent as she matures. She doesn't want her to make more than $200 per week when she starts working, if she's working as a teenager, and she will warn her about the dangers of being a stripper like she was. She'll teach her how to speak English and Spanish, and she wants her to start learning French by the time she is four. Ballet lessons could also be in the cards, but she for sure wants her child to know self-defense.
"I don't want my kid to get picked on and she don't know how to defend herself," she explained. "I have a little brother and I always put in his head, since he was two years old, ‘Somebody hit you, you kick, you kick, you kick.'"
Will Cardi B and her daughter wear amazing twinning fashions, like Beyoncé and Blue Ivy? We'll have to stay tuned.
