Cardi, 29, married rapper Kiari Cephus, aka Offset, in 2017. Their daughter, Kulture Kiari Cephus, was born on July 10, 2018. They welcomed their second child, a boy, on September 4, 2021.

They have yet to reveal his name.

In a video on social media, Cardi B says the 4-month-old is already talking.

"I'm not exaggerating, this baby is talking," Cardi said.

"I put this on everything I love. Yesterday, I was like 'You love Mommy? Yeah?' Then I asked him again. 'You love Mommy?' And he replied back 'Yeah!'

"I don't know if that's like the pandemic thing. I don't know if this is normal. This sh*t is crazy. I need a camera in his room 24/7."

Tristan Thompson attempted to pay Maralee Nichols $75,000 to abort their unborn son last year. Instead, she packed her bags and moved to California. Her son was born there on December 1.

Now a California judge has ordered Tristan to pay Nichols $40,000 a month in temporary support for the newborn.

The child support amount is based on Tristan's NBA salary of nearly $10 million in 2021. The judge also reviewed Maralee Nichols' bank records and determined she needed the extra support.

The judge considered the other child support payments Tristan is paying to Khloe Kardashian, the mother of his 3-year-old daughter, True, and Jordan Craig, mother of his son Prince, 4.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tristan is paying $40k per month for his son, and $34k per month for his daughter, based on Khloe's net worth of $50 million.

With all three child support payments combined, Tristan is paying over $1 million a year. The 6'-9" Sacramento Kings forward has earned over $116 million since he was drafted by the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2011.

Rumors swirled that Diamond was pregnant with Chris Brown's third child, but Chris has never confirmed the rumors.

Chris was silent when Diamond announced she had given birth to her first child.

"The princess is here! Lovely Symphani Brown. My sweet babygirl, it's been a whole day you've been in the world and have already shown me the true meaning of life. I promise to love and protect you always. Forever yours, mommy."

She posted a photo of a newborn with a heart emoji covering the baby's face.

The newborn's grandmother, Lilleth, reposted the same image on her social media, along with a caption stating the mother and father didn't want the child's face to be shown.

In a follow-up post, Lilleth wrote:

"The name #LovelySymphaniBrown is so beautiful and unique we love that both #ChrisBrown and #DiamondBrown put so much thought into her name it's beautiful and I just wanted to share with you about Chris Symphonic Love foundation this name is near and dear to him."

According to reports, Diamond held a baby shower several weeks ago. Fans commented under the photos congratulating Chris on his third child by three women.

He also shares a 7-year-old daughter, Royalty, with a one-night stand, Nia Guzman, and 2-year-old son, Aeko Brown, with Ammika Harris.

Ammika seems bitter and upset at the news that she is now one of three baby mamas.

"She mad and bitter AF," an Instagram user noted in her comments. "Be careful his second babymama would literally block you just for commenting," another fan wrote.

Ammika and Chris are reportedly on holiday together in London this weekend. Chris seems smitten with Ammika.

"I love you Meek Meek," he wrote in a caption for her birthday last year.

The Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood star said:

"Obviously, being with child means that I can't take my antidepressants, I can't take my high blood pressure meds, I can't eat edibles, I can't drink... I'm dehydrated, malnourished. I have endometriosis, hypertension, ovarian cyst, one of which has ruptured... Bro, you're not gonna stress me out... My daughter is measuring smaller than she should... I can't believe I'm about to be a single mom for the second time."

Moniece said she suffered two miscarriages and her unborn daughter was her "greatest blessing" that she plans to name "Dior".

"I know I said I didn't want any more kids," she added. "Dior was unexpected and I have to choose to love her in spite of. All I can do is make it to full term."

She added that her daughter's father is not her baby daddy, Lil Fizz of B2K, and father of her son Kamron.

Moniece will document her pregnancy journey in her own reality TV series, Slaughter Slays, which premieres on For Us By Us Network on March 22.

Tristan Thompson hopes to impregnate his on-again, off-again girlfriend, Khloe Kardashian, if she takes him back. The couple share 3-year-old daughter, True Thompson.

MTO News spoke with a source close to the Kardashian Kamp who insist Tristan is begging Khloe to forgive him after he dropped a baby in another woman.

According to MTO:

"Our snitch tells us that Tristan is even promising to get Khloe pregnant again, if she takes him back.

"Tristan told Khloe that if she takes him back they can have more babies and build on their family. He was reluctant to have any more kids with Khloe before this [cheating incident] happened."

BACKGRID

They will have to hurry because Khloe's eggs are past the 35-year expiration date.

It isn't clear if Khloe, 37, is speaking to Tristan after a DNA test confirmed he fathered a baby boy with fitness trainer Maralee Nichols.

Last week Khloe took to her Instagram Story to share an emotional message about surviving difficult times.

"There's going to be very painful moments in your life that will change your entire world in a matter of minutes. These moments will change YOU. Let them make you stronger, smarter and kinder. But don't you go and become someone that your not. Cry. Scream if you have to. Then you straighten out that and keep it moving [sic]."

Rapper Joey BADA$$ (left) returned to Twitter after a long hiatus to spark controversy with his first tweet.

Joey weighed in on Tristan Thompson's paternity drama after the 30-year-old NBA star confessed to fathering a child with a fitness trainer.

The baby boy, who was born in Dec. 1, is Tristan's 3rd child by three women (that we know of).

Joey, who last tweeted on Nov. 13, called Tristan a gyalis -- a Jamaican patois term for a player or a man who enjoys more than one female partner at a time.

Joey tweeted:

"Tristian Thompson gotta stop being a sorry ass n***a. Tell Khloe you're a f****** gyalist and you need more than one woman. Straight up. Whats so hard about being honest with our women fellas? F*** this western bulls**t. Relationships should be expansive and beneficial for all [sic]."

Joey followed up his tweet by explaining that men should be honest with women about their true nature.

"Most of us have been in polyamorous relationships our whole lives. The only difference is we weren't honest about it. But if you've ever been sexually involved with someone non-exclusively, guess what, you're polyamorous."

Joey is right: men are naturally polygamous. It's in the Bible that men should be fruitful and multiply. But that doesn't fly in today's female-dominated society.

Joey's female followers were mostly in disagreement.

"Jessica" wrote:

"Loud and WRONG! Polyamory - means many loves. You're not in a polyamorus relationship if you are not honest you're simply a cheater.

You're only in a polyamorus relationship if all partners are consenting and intentional in the relationships."

Candace Rice wasn't expecting a surprise Christmas gift when she went into preterm labor and delivered her son at just 24 weeks.

The "Floribama Shore" star announced her pregnancy on Instagram after going into preterm labor. She posted a maternity photo shoot on Instagram from her hospital bed.

"I didn't want to post these yet," she wrote, "but unfortunately yesterday I went into pre term labor at 24 weeks."

"Dr. Tosha Muse in addition to all the wonderful doctors & nurses have been doing all they can to keep baby Maxwell Michael Hardy inside the womb as long as possible. It's wayyyy too early for him to enter."

 

Maxwell came into the world at 2:30 a.m. on Christmas Day. Candace posted a photo of a nurse gently squeezing air into Maxwell's fragile lungs with an Ambu bag.

Candace captioned the image:

"Maxwell Michael Hardy arrived at 2:30am. We have a Christmas baby and another Capricorn! He's so strong! Currently in Nicu and hopefully I can take him home in a few months. I'm asking for prayers now, more than ever for my little man. He's so small, but so aware."

The baby's father is Rice's boyfriend, DJ Skar, whose real name is Denzel Hardy.

The proud parents expect to take their baby home in a few months.

"Please keep the development of baby Maxwell in your family prayers today as you gather with family & friends. #ChristmasBabyBaby," Candace wrote.

Cardi B surprised husband Offset with a giant check for $2 million at his birthday party this week. Offset's 30th Sneaker Birthday Ball was held at Sneakertopia LA in Los Angeles.

After Offset made it rain stacks of cash on the crowd, Cardi surprised him with the massive check.

Apparently, Offset's income was disrupted by the pandemic, but Cardi -- the breadwinner of the family -- is making up for his loss in revenue.
 


 
Earlier this week, Cardi B and Offset had a falling out over how to dress their infant son.

In a video shared on her Instagram Stories, Cardi shows Offset a mini fedora for their only son.

But Offset disagreed with her fashion choice. "Hell nah," the Migos rapper said. "I'm not putting that s—t on my son, man ... Have my boy looking like Ne-Yo!"

Ne-Yo is a Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter who is not known for his masculinity.

Offset also balked when Cardi showed him a cute baby outfit featuring red pants, a button-down Oxford shirt and suspenders.

"Ain't this cute?" the mom-of-two asked.

"Hell the f**k no!" the frustrated father-of-5 responded.

"This is cute. This is cute," Cardi pressed on. But offset wasn't having it.

"Hell no! Man, bro, stop playing for real," Offset said, before adding that Cardi wanted to dress their son like Carlton Banks, the nerdish character played by actor Alfonso Ribeiro on '90s hit comedy TV series "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air."

Cardi gave birth to her first son on September 4, 2021. She has not yet revealed her son's name. The hip-hop couple also share 3-year-old daughter Kulture Kiari Cephus.

Offset also has two sons, Jordan and Kody, and a daughter, Kalea Marie, from previous relationships.

Maralee Nichols shared the first photo of her newborn son. The fitness model claims the baby was fathered by NBA star Tristan Thompson.

In the photo obtained by Page Six, Maralee cradles her newborn son in front of a festive Christmas tree. Both mother and son are wearing matching Grinch pajamas. The baby's face is not seen in the photo.

The 31-year-old fitness model filed a paternity suit against Tristan earlier this year, claiming he fathered her then-unborn baby.

But Tristan hit back, demanding a DNA test after the child was born, but Maralee has not complied.

A counter-lawsuit he filed in Houston -- where the child was allegedly conceived -- was thrown out by a judge.

The judge stated the suit should be heard in Los Angeles, California where Maralee and her son reside.

IXOLA / BACKGRID

At the time of his hookup with Maralee, Tristan was in an on-again, off-again relationship with socialite Khloe Kardashian, 37, the mother of his 3-year-old daughter, True Thompson.

Maralee and Tristan appeared via a Zoom hearing on Dec. 8, where Tristan confessed his Snapchat username was "blkejesus00" and that he used the app to arrange a "hook up" with Maralee.

"We never had any telephone calls, emails, nor did we exchange text messages. We only communicated via the Snapchat application," Tristan said.

He said he used the app to arrange meetings with women because it automatically deleted their communications.

"I only recall that [Nichols] and I had sexual relations in March of 2021 and at no other time in 2021," the Sacramento Kings star said. "[Nichols] constantly used the term 'hook up' to describe our relationship which was the reality."

Tristan, 30, also accused Maralee of having a sexually transmitted disease.

He claims Maralee scheduled a labor induction on December 1, due to "medical reasons." He said herpes was the reason behind the induced labor and he believes that his own health might be at risk.

"Since opening up our private files to the media, I have been contacted by a source confirming that I should be checked because Petitioner has been diagnosed with herpes," he said. "Therefore, it would make sense that Petitioner had to have a designated delivery date."

Maralee issued a statement to Page Six, saying:

"Instead of focusing on any negativity, I am choosing to embrace being a mother and doing the best I can for my son. I do not want any further media attention, nor do I want a romantic relationship with Tristan.

"My goal is to raise our son in a safe, healthy, loving and private environment."

Moving trucks were seen outside Khloe's Hidden Hills estate, where Tristan had been laying his head until Maralee Nichols' paternity suit went public.

The moving trucks were presumably there to remove Tristan's belongings after Khloe threw him out (again).
