Belcalis “Cardi B” Almánzar Cephus and Kiari “Offset” Cephus secretly wed in September 2017. The celebrity couple now has two children together, 3-year-old Kulture Kiari Cephus and 7-month-old Wave Set Cephus.
Offset also has three other kids from previous relationships. 12-year-old Jordan Cephus, 7-year-old Kody Cephus, and 7-year-old Kalea Marie Cephus joined their father, step-mother, Kulture, and Wave for a recently unveiled Essence cover.
Inside the magazine, Cardi B talked about being the matriarch of a blended family with her husband. Offset also discussed being a father of five and how his wife accepts all of his children.
“It’s a blessing to be able to have them all together, and to have a wife who’s open and treats them as if they’re her kids,” stated Offset. “It could be an issue, but I don’t have to go through that, and that’s beautiful.”
Offset & Cardi B Have Been Together For Five Years
The Migos member from Atlanta and the Bronx-bred rapstress began dating in 2017. Offset and Cardi B famously attended Super Bowl LI in Houston’s NRG Stadium as a first date.
According to Essence Senior Editor Brande Victorian, Cardi B suggested Jordan, Kody, and Kalea also be part of the family photoshoot. The “Up” hitmaker apparently did not want her stepchildren to feel left out of the experience.
“I feel like sometimes people go into a relationship with a man or a woman who has kids with negativity – and I feel like people should embrace it, and love it. I love our family, and I wouldn’t want it any other way,” said Cardi B.
