Cardi B got a jumpstart on her Mother’s Day celebration seemingly at the urging of her four-year-old daughter Kulture.
On Friday, the 30-year-old superstar rapper took to her Instagram page and shared a few videos and photos of her ‘Mother’s Day Brunch’, along with some quiet time she spent with her first born that included looking through a custom scrapbook that she made for her.

Included was a clip of the proud mom laying down and cuddling with her baby girl, which the Best Life star enhanced with a snippet of Madonna’s song True Blue.
The social media frenzy began with Cardi sharing a selfie video of herself standing in front of a mirror in the living room of their home.
She appeared to be putting on the finishing touches to her ensemble of the day, which included a light lavender dress that hugged her famous curves from top to bottom and a pair of light green heels.
Straight off the top of the opening clip, Cardi could be seen running her hands through her dark tresses, which were styled long and straight down over her chest to her waistline in the front and back.
Flashing a big beaming smile toward the camera, the New York City native was obviously touched by the gestures of her daughter for Mother’s Day.
The Bodak Yellow MC also shared a photo of herself touching cheeks with Kulture while puckering up to give her a kiss.
Dressed in a white outfit with a gold star on the front and her hair pulled up into a bun, the thoughtful little girl also had a big smile on her face as she shared the moment with her mom.
During their brunch at a restaurant, Cardi (born Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar Cephus) took time to look through the custom book her daughter gave to her, which read on the front cover: ‘Happy Mother’s Day, Love Kulture.’
She flipped the cover to the first page, revealing a letter with a floral outline: ‘Dear Mommy, Have a happy Mother’s Day. I love you to the moon and back. Love Kulture.’
Voices from the brunch party could be heard in the background as she turned to the second page, which appeared to be a dark side silhouette of her daughter, with the headline: ‘Mother’s Day 2023.’
The clips ended with the proud mother of two yelling out, ‘I love this,’ to Kulture.
Later in the evening on Friday, Cardi took to her Instagram to share a video of Kulture laying on top of her that had Madonna’s hit song True Blue playing along to their snuggle-fest.
‘True love/You’re the one I’m dreaming of/Your heart fits me like a glove/And I’m gonna be true blue, baby, I love you,’ the Material Girl could be her singing in the catchy song, which was the third single from her True Blue (1986) album.
As her baby girl lay on top of her, Cardi once again couldn’t resist puckering up and giving her more kisses.
At one point, Kulture began to shift around and then flash another sweet smile while her mommy showered her with affection.
Cardi shares Kulture and her 20-month-old son Wave with her husband of more than five years, rapper Offset (born Kiari Kendrell Cephus), 31.
The campaign to make Mother’s Day a recognized holiday in the United States began in 1905, when Anna Jarvis wanted to honor her mother, Ann Reeves Jarvis, after her death that year.
The modern holiday was first celebrated in 1907, when Anna Jarvis held the first Mother’s Day service of worship at Andrews Methodist Episcopal Church in Grafton, West Virginia, according to International Mother’s Day Shrine.
President Woodrow Wilson would go on to officially proclaimed the second Sunday each May as Mother’s Day in 1914.
