By AAP Newswire

Rapper Cardi B has given birth to her first child, a baby girl, with her rapper husband Offset, according to an announcement she posted to Instagram.

The parents named the child Kulture Kiari Cephus, Cardi B said on an Instagram post that featured a nude pregnancy photo of the 25-year-old Be Careful singer surrounded by flowers.

The baby's name is an apparent nod to albums Culture and Culture II from Migos, the rap group of which Offset is a member. His real name is Kiari Cephus.

The birth came just weeks after Cardi B confirmed in a statement that she and Offset, 26, had been secretly married in September.

Cardi B's real name is Belcalis Almanzar. She announced that she was pregnant during an appearance on Saturday Night Live in April.

It is the fourth child for Offset, who has three other children from previous relationships.

Cardi B's debut album Invasion of Privacy hit the top of the US album charts in April and has stayed in the top 10 since then. It debuted at No.5 on Australia's ARIA charts.

Her single Bodak Yellow (Money Moves) made her the first solo female rapper to top the US charts since Lauryn Hill did it with Doo Wop (That Thing) in 1998.
