Rapper Offset is grateful that his wife Cardi B loves her stepchildren “the same way” as their daughter.
The 28-year-old “WAP” rapper is mom to 2-year-old daughter Kulture Kiari Cephus, and she is also stepmother to Offset’s three other children, Jordan, 11, Kalea, 6, and Kody, also six.
The Migos rapper, real name Kiari Kendrell Cephus, spoke to Entertainment Tonight about fatherhood ahead of Father’s Day on Sunday, June 20.
He praised the way his wife treats his own children with as much love and tenderness as their own child.
“She usually surprises me with an expensive gift, man,” he said. “That’s how it usually goes. She always just give me love… My other kids who ain’t hers… (she) gives them love the same way. It’s a beautiful thing.”
Offset, 29, is looking forward to his Father’s Day gifts, but he’s looking forward to spending the day with his spawn.
“(I want) to be at home more than anything, just enjoying the kids… running around, ‘Daddy! Daddy! Daddy! Daddy! Daddy!'” he said.
“Being able to see them all at once just running around, it’s beautiful. Just with the family – family time. It’s wild, man. It’s non-stop (mimicking his children) ‘Daddy! Daddy! Daddy! I want to do this! If he’s doing something, I want to do it! He ain’t pass the controller! He’s playing the game too long! He won’t give me my iPad! He’s watching the iPad too long!’ But they love each other so much.”
The rapper is also eager to teach his children important life lessons.
He told Entertainment Tonight:
“I want them to understand that they got to work hard. Life is not easy… I want them to respect the moral of life, respect other people, and not act so spoiled… I have real life conversations with them. Sometimes they ask, ‘I want this, this, that’… I don’t say yes to everything. Mostly because I didn’t have it.”
“I see a lot of people say, ‘I didn’t have it coming up, so I give them whatever they want.’ I don’t do that because how I got to the position I’m in right now is by not having access to everything… I tell ’em (to) save money… I’m trying to teach them that early because even though we’re blessed to be able to give them what they need, they’ve still got to understand the real-life situations in the world.”
