Cardi B and Migos rapper Offset welcomed their first child on Wednesday morning. The celebrity couple broke the news on Instagram, where Cardi posted a nude maternity photo with the name of their newborn daughter: Kulture Kiari Cephus.
The birth of their daughter comes mere weeks after Cardi (born Belcalis Almanzar) confirmed that she and Offset (born Kiari Kendrell Cephus) were secretly wed this past September. “Well now since you lil [nosy] f**ks know at least ya can stop saying I had a baby out of wedlock,” she wrote on Twitter.
Kulture is Cardi’s first child, but Offset has three additional children with different women: Jordan, Kody, and Kalea Marie.
Here’s what you need to know about Offset’s children:
1. He Had Jordan Cephus With a Woman Named Justine Watson
Offset’s oldest child is Jordan Cephus, whom he fathered with a woman named Justine Watson. Jordan’s identity was unknown by the public until last year, when Watson sued the rapper for lack of child support. According to The Blast, Watson claimed that Offset provided only “sporadic financial assistance,” but didn’t contribute to education, medical expenses, or extra-curricular activities for Jordan. Watson asked for retroactive child support and an estimated $15K in legal fees.
Despite a lack of DNA evidence, Offset responded to Watson’s claims and admitted that Jordan was his child. He did, however, claim that he had provided child support since Jordan’s birth and that he had no intention of paying Watson’s legal fees. The rapper went on to say that he wanted joint legal and physical custody of Jordan, and that he legally change Jordan’s last name to his.
In February, Watson’s request to make Offset’s financial records and personal information public were dismissed by the judge. An insider for Bossip stated: “It is specifically understood that the Confidential Information is of critical importance to the parties and the harm resulting from any breach may be difficult to determine and may be wholly or partially irreparable.”
The current status of Jordan’s custody is unknown.
2. He Had Kody Cephus With His Ex-Girlfriend Oriel Jamie
Offset’s second child is named Kody Cephus, whom he fathered with his ex-girlfriend Oriel Jamie. Offset and Jamie began dating in 2013, according to Empire BBK, and they had Kody on March 3, 2015. It is unclear when they broke up. When Offset announced his engagement to Cardi B, Jamie took to Snapchat to vent about the fact that Kody had yet to meet his step-mom. “Congrats to my son daddy and his step mother whom he has yet to meet. Hopefully he at least get an invite to the wedding.”
Offset frequently posts videos and photos with Kody, including one of them where the latter is looking into the camera and crying. The rapper playfully captioned the photo: “Crybaby,” but Watson wasn’t humored by the photo, and felt that Offset was pretending to be something he wasn’t– a family man. “N*ggas always want to down u to they n*ggas or …read more
