Cardi B’s new baby has received a lot of pampering from her close friend and fellow entertainer, Selena Gomez. The 29-year-old rapper took to social media to share with her fans the thoughtful gesture of a giant gift basket filled with adorable toys and snacks for her busy mommy duties. In the video shared on her Instagram, Cardi expressed how cute and sweet the bear and treats were, which would come in handy during those late-night baby rocking sessions.
On Day 1 of the 2019 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, singers Cardi B and Selena Gomez performed together on stage at the Outdoor Stage in Indio, California. Cardi B thanked Selena during their performance and called her adorable in a video shared on social media. The two artists became friends after collaborating on the hit song “Taki Taki” with DJ Snake and reggaeton star Ozuna. Selena has always been supportive of Cardi B during her milestones, as the pop star, actress, and businesswoman continue to show their friendship.
Selena Gomez’s gift marks the baby boy’s first month, and Cardi will benefit from it in multiple ways since she decided not to have a baby shower. According to the rapper, she preferred to hold a big bash for her daughter instead. In an interview on the live radio app Stationhead, she explains why.
“I feel overwhelmed when I have to do these big events, and I just feel like the baby shower with Kulture’s birthday is just too close,” Cardi said. “Just to see the same people over again, and it’s like, not doing it.”
In September, the rapper made her first public appearance after giving birth. The starlet became the center of attention at Paris Fashion Week when she arrived at a Mugler event wearing a jaw-dropping and spectacular outfit. Describing herself as a “Mugler Mami” on social media, Cardi stepped on the “Thierry Mugler: Couturissime” black carpet in a form-fitting over-the-top sequined gown from the designer’s 1995 couture collection. The plunging red dress had a matching cape constructed in feathers.
