Despite a whirlwind year filled with accolades and exciting opportunities, Cardi B described motherhood as her "proudest" and "happiest" accomplishment. The charismatic 26-year-old rapper recently spoke about being a new mom in the December/January 2018 issue of People en Español, and though she admitted her high-profile lifestyle provides certain obstacles, Cardi said parenting her 3-month-old daughter Kulture keeps her grounded. "It cracks a smile on the most stressful days," she said.
While she's famously candid, Cardi has been fairly private about her daughter, and even declined a million-dollar offer to share pictures of her with the press. Cardi also dropped out of a tour with Bruno Mars so that she could spend more time with her newborn. "I don't want to miss nothing from my baby," Cardi said of the decision. "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."
What's more, Cardi is adamant about ensuring Kulture isn't spoiled. "She's gonna be raised in a big mansion. She's most likely gonna get whatever she wants from me and her dad, but I also want her to be humble," Cardi said. Adding, "I would like her to see how the people in my community live. I would like for her to be humble, for her to want to share, for her not to be snobby."
