Cardi B Says Planning A Baby Shower Is ‘So Overwhelming’, Makes Her Not Want A Wedding
Cardi B is feeling the pressure as the birth of her daughter grows closer. She's overwhelmed by planning a baby shower, never mind a wedding.
Baby Shower Blues
The rapper had no trouble assembling a stuffed baby gift registry, however. Included on her lengthy list of must-have items were a $150 BEABA Babycook set, along with a $3,000 Moses bassinet with an $800 gold-leaf covering.
Cardi's little girl will also soon be cruising around in her own mini Bentley Bentayga, which retails for around $500. The rapper found it difficult not to put stuff for herself on the registry, however, as she admitted on Twitter last week.
The hit-maker received all these items, plus plenty more, at her Atlanta baby shower this past weekend. The 25-year-old tweeted how difficult it was to plan the event, and how it was making her anxious about her upcoming nuptials to fellow rapper Offset.
"Baby shower planning makes me not even wanna do a wedding s**t soo overwhelming," she complained.
Adding to the stress was the fact Cardi's doctor forbid her from flying until after she gives birth, meaning she couldn't have her planned second shower in NYC and had to get her 60 guests to Atlanta for a combination event instead.
She and Offset were recently interviewed by Rolling Stone, with Cardi explaining she didn't want a boring baby shower that started in the afternoon.
"I want a lit baby shower. My baby shower's not starting at no 5:00. My s**t is going to start at 9 p.m. because that's how I celebrate, that's how Caribbean people celebrate," she explained.
Invasion Of Privacy
The "I Like It" rapper got engaged to Offset back in October. However, she confirmed that the two actually got hitched the previous month. Cardi explained that she kept the news to herself so she could control the reporting.
"This why I name my album "Invasion of Privacy" ... There are so many moments that I share with the world and then there are moments that I want to keep for myself! Getting married was one of those moments!" she tweeted angrily on Monday, following a TMZ report claiming the two were already married.
The rapper went on to explain that, because the relationship was so new, she didn't want it to play out in front of the whole world. So, back in September, she and Offset just decided to go ahead and make it official then and there.
Cardi is in her final month of pregnancy and is due to give birth to her little girl any day now. She told Rolling Stone she's excited to be a touring mom and is planning to have a separate room on her bus just for the two of them.
The rapper is only looking to be separated from her daughter when she absolutely has to be, such as when she's on stage, as she's worried about missing any little moments in her life.
