The photos feature both artists, their two children together, daughter Kulture, 3, and 7-month-old son Wave, as well as Offset’s three children from previous relationships, Kalea, 7, and sons Kody, also 7, and Jordan, 12.
The culture and lifestyle publication shared video covers as well as shots from a fashion editorial spread. In the story, the couple opened up about how they maintain family and fame, discussing details of their home life and careers.
Despite their public ups and downs the Cephus’s are here to stay, and their love is one for the books. The sanctuary they have created not only for themselves, but also their children is evident throughout their honest dialogue. Welcome to “The Safe House.”
- CARDI B ON MEETING OFFSET’S CHILDREN: “After we got married, that’s when I met his kids. I always wanted them to love me, and they really do. They tell me that. I feel it, and I hope we always have a great relationship.”
- OFFSET ON FAMILY: “It’s a blessing to be able to have them all together, and to have a wife who’s open and treats them as if they’re her kids. It could be an issue, but I don’t have to go through that, and that’s beautiful.”
- CARDI B ON HOW OFFSET SUPPORTS HER: “When I had my baby, I felt like things were going to be alright, because I know the type of man that he is with his kids. It’s hard for me to explain, but I see how much he loves his kids and how passionate he is about his kids, and I love that.”
- OFFSET ON HOW THEY STAY MOTIVATED: “It might sound weird, but we don’t always put love first—because sometimes you can put love before work and mess up your career, because you’re not focused. Love is important, but if you’ve got that foundation, we should respect each other and what we have going on. I had never experienced a woman that was working like me and doing what I’m doing. It turns me on. She does her own thing. She likes the hustle, so that ain’t never getting in between our love.”
