Cardi B and Offset flaunted their blended family on the May/June issue of Essence magazine. For the featured article, the star couple talked about their relationship, Cardi B’s pregnancy and how she set out to forge a strong bond with Offset’s children from previous relationships.
Cardi was hesitant to pursue a relationship with Offset.
Cardi's team worried that getting pregnant would put her career in jeopardy.
As the musical guest for Saturday Night Live, Cardi announced she was expecting her first child, but her team was concerned about how it would impact her career.
“I was really nervous because everybody around me was nervous,” the Bodak Yellow rapper recalled. “People who work in the industry said that nothing like this had really happened before, when somebody was at the height of their career and they got pregnant.”
During this time of intense doubt, Offset became her rock and assured her that she would be the hottest emcee.
“He kept telling me, ‘Trust me. It’s going to be alright. You’re huge. Everybody loves you. People are going to understand,'” she said. “And I just kept telling myself, ‘I have to put out my album before I get big and I can’t do these music videos. I can’t let everybody in the industry that believes in me down.'”
Cardi B desired to shape a healthy family dynamic.
Twitter was beside itself when the cover was published on social media.
After catching a glimpse of the Essence photos, Twitter users applauded the family.

I like the way they did the colour scheme with the older kids in darker blue shades to match offset while their shared children are in that cute mint to match cardi’s lavender
