Cardi B has told fans she decided to call her baby daughter Kulture because anything else would've been "too basic."

The 'Bodak Yellow' hitmaker announced on Wednesday  that she had given birth to her little girl Kulture Kiari Cephus - whom she has with her husband Offset - and, although her choice of moniker has raised a few eyebrows, the 25-year-old rapper has defended her decision to give her baby girl an obscure name. 

Taking to her Instagram account, the brunette beauty uploaded a professional photograph of her baby bump and captioned it: "Kulture anything else woulda been basic."

And the 'Be Careful' hitmaker has already proved that she wants her little girl to live an extravagant lifestyle as she recently dropped $7000 on luxury baby items.

Cardi and Offset were seen buying the designer gear at Couture Kids on Robertson, a baby boutique in West Hollywood, which included a Fendi stroller for $1,600 and a Versace changing bag at $600.

There was also a pricey Stokke Xplory stroller, which retails at over $1000 and a customised recliner at $3,000. The couple also bought a Givenchy teddy bear for $195 for their little girl. 

Cardi previously insisted she is working hard to make things better for her future children as she doesn't want them to be raised the way she was and wants to be able to give them all she can.

Speaking before she revealed her pregnancy, she said: "This is my work ethic: I do not want to raise my future kids where I was raised, and I know the only way to do it is working, working, working, working, working. I don't want to live in a small Bronx apartment. I don't want to have three kids that got to share one room. I don't want my kids to go to school and get gang-affiliated. I don't want to do welfare. I don't."

Offset, 26, already has three other children from previous relationships.
