Cardi B and Offset Reveal Name of Their Baby Boy and Share First Photos Showing His Face 

Cardi B and Offset are giving the world a glimpse into their colorful family life, including revealing the name of their  newborn son. 

The superstar rappers both took to Instagram to share adorable close-up shots of their sons. Offset, born Kiari Kendrell Cephus, revealed the baby’s name  

in the caption of his post: “WAVE SET CEPHUS,” he wrote, alongside a photo of Wave wearing a bundle of silver chains. 

Cardi shared photos of baby Wave decked out in a stylish ensemble, which included a baby blue puffer jacket with matching beanie and pants, white sneakers, and a pendant necklace. 

Previously, Cardi had only shared a photo of Wave shortly after his birth in September 2021, in which the baby could only be seen wrapped in a blue blanket. 

The rapper is back on social media after deleting both her Twitter and Instagram accounts following criticism from fans for not attending the Grammys earlier this month. 

After posting about her newborn son, Cardi shared she, Offset and their children, are gracing the cover of Essence's May/June issue, in which the couple opens up about raising a blended family.  

“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,” Offset said of Cardi’s relationship with his children.  

Cardi and Offset share a 3-year-old daughter Kulture. The Migos rapper has three older children from previous relationships: sons Jordan, 12, and Kody, 7, and daughter Kalea, 7. 

Cardi says she hopes to “always have a great relationship” with her  step-children. 

“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,” 

Cardi opened up about how she and to Offset held off on publicly sharing images of Wave’s face because of their experience with “Internet bullies” on Kulture’s Instagram page

“We went through a lot of sad things when it comes to Kulture — terrible behavior that not even the older kids have ever been through. 

So many people will post mean, disgusting things, just to get a reaction from us,” Cardi said. “We want to protect our feelings because we get very, very angry and upset.”
