Cardi B Believes Motherhood Is Her Greatest Achievement
Cardi B may be overcoming her viral beef with Nicki Minaj and preparing to launch her new Fashion Nova collection, but she can easily set her drama and money moves aside to be a mommy to her daughter Kulture first. In her new cover story for People En Español, which was released yesterday (Oct. 30), Cardi opens up about her undying love for Kulture and claims that motherhood is her greatest achievement in life thus far.
"It’s my proudest and my happiest [achievement being a mom]," Cardi tells the publication. "When you’re famous, so many things are being thrown at you: so many gossips, so many problems, so many beefs, so much money, so much of everything, it just kind of drives you crazy. And then when I see my daughter, it’s like a peace of mind. [I say:] ‘Ahh, I do this because of you.’ It cracks a smile on the most stressful days.”
The "Money" rapper also vents about the process of splitting up childcare duties with her family in Washington Heights, N.Y. She admits her family feels the exhaustion from babysitting while trying to balance her highly-publicized lifestyle, but in the end, she refuses to miss out on any part of her daughter's life. She also says she pulled out of Bruno Mars' 24K Magic Tour to be with her daughter.
“I don’t want to miss nothing from my baby," Cardi explained. "I read that babies forget people so quick; I don’t want her to forget me. I don’t want her thinking that somebody else is her mom; I want her to love me as her mom. I want to be the one that when she cries, I’m the one that stops her from crying. Seriously. I had to pull out from a tour [with singer Bruno Mars]. Being a week away, it would just drive me insane.”
Cardi B wants her daughter to be very humble and cultured. She also wants her to grow up to speak at least four languages, including English, Spanish, French and possibly Italian.
