Rapper Cardi B gave fans on Twitter the first look at her 6-month-old son. She captioned the photo, “That’s all y’all will get.”
The reveal came after Cardi posted that she wished she could take her baby’s teething pain away. A fan joked in the replies, “Our baby cousin got teeth coming in and we ain’t seen him yet,” prompting Cardi to post the first photo of his face online.

Cardi, 29, then responded to backlash from the post, saying, “How people mad cause people was asking me to see my son and I replied? It seems like I can’t do or say nothing these days wit out people getting irritated.”

It’s not the first time the WAP rapper has shared updates about her newest child online. She posted a shot of her newborn son and his father, Offset, on Instagram after his birth. She has shared updates on his development on her social media accounts since.
According to People, Cardi’s son spoke his first words at just four months. When the mother of two asked her son, “You love Mommy?” he replied “Yeah!” clearly and with no signs of the usual baby babbling. Cardi added that her son said “Hello” while singing along to Cocomelon.
“I don’t know if that’s like the pandemic thing. I don’t know if this is normal,” Cardi said in the original Instagram story. “This s— is crazy. I need a camera in his room 24/7.”
His sister, 3-year-old Kulture, has come around to love the 6-month-old even though she insisted she wanted a baby sister before he was born. In a more recent video, Kulture said she doesn’t want another sibling because she likes her brother and he is “perfect.”
The artist has kept the name of her son a secret still. Her desire for her children’s privacy could stem from the harassment she found on her daughter’s Instagram account. She’s since deleted the account and spoke out against those who sent hate messages.
