Cardi B and Offset had their first child, Kulture Kiari Cephus, in July of 2018.
Though fans were excited to see the new addition to their family, Cardi B and Offset have yet to share a photo of Kulture — but now, a new leaked baby picture of Kulture has reportedly surfaced.
After Kulture’s birth, TMZ reported that Cardi planned on keeping the baby’s looks a mystery until she was at least 5 or 6 months old. Despite reportedly receiving multiple offers of $100K or more from several media outlets, Cardi and Offset have only shown a literal sliver of their baby on Instagram.
However, it appears a leaked photo of Kulture has made its way online. According to MTO News, one of Cardi B’s fan sites uploaded a baby pic of Kulture to their Instagram page. They allegedly received the photo from Cardi B’s sister Hennessy.

Though neither Cardi B or Offset have publicly addressed the issue yet, MTO News reports that Cardi B and her team are “furious” with the site’s decision to upload the photo and are working to have it scrubbed from the Internet. But you know what they say — once it’s on the internet, it’s there for good.
Some fans thought they’d get their first look at Kulture when Cardi B opened the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards. The rapper appeared onstage complete with a bundled blanket in her arms, a gesture so convincing even her husband Offset seemed legitimately distraught about it.
After the show, Cardi tweeted that Offset “was sooo mad” because he thought she was about to reveal Kulture, when really it was just one of Cardi’s awards.
Why Set said i was sooo mad, when i saw you on stage with that blanket I thought you was going to show Kulture

Cardi B and Offset aren’t the first celebrities who’ve decided to keep their baby to themselves. Jay-Z and Beyonce have also been secretive about their twins, Sir and Rumi, going so far as to show a photo of Beyonce holding twins that apparently weren’t theirs during their recent On The Run Tour. And though open about her daughter Stormi’s looks at first, Kylie Jenner stopped sharing photos of Stormi on social media for a bit after receiving threatening comments.
