Bardi Baby Shower! Cardi B and Offset Celebrate Daughter on the Way at 'Bronx Fairytale' Bash
The spouses celebrated their baby girl on the way at an extravagant shower Tuesday night in Atlanta, with a theme of Bardi Shower: A Bronx Fairytale.
Friends and family (including Cardi B’s sister Hennessy Carolina) danced the night away amid tons of pink and white flowers, pink balloons and more, shown in video footage shared to the couple’s Instagram and Facebook pages.
The chic soirée also featured a full band, a children’s book library for the couple’s bundle of joy and a “Bardi Baby Bodega,” where guests could grab a variety of refreshments and other products.

Alongside an exclusive set of photos, Vogue received details on the shower from its planner Karleen Roy, who worked alongside event designer Michelle Gainey of Lemiga Events. Roy described the shower’s theme to Vogue as “a magical and imaginary Bronx land fit for the quintessential baby girl … only this time there is a plot twist in this lavish story: It’s a magical, whimsical land, but FOR THE CULTURE!”
C.Wayman Floral & Events provided the more than 25,000 flowers, which were used to build various animal sculptures, subway-car models, a 16-foot decorative piece and more. Attendees noshed on sliced fruit, piraguas, soul food, coquito cocktails and Hennessy shots — a clear shout-out to Cardi B’s younger sibling.
Vogue reports the night’s entertainment was provided by the Ballethnic dance company and hip-hop orchestra group Orchestra Noir and that the baby’s library included titles like Viva, Frida and Buenas Noches, Luna, while the “Bardi Baby Bodega” offered multiple baby-related items such as bottles and diapers wrapped in pink ribbon.
For dessert? A five-tier cake covered in flowers, with each tier boasting a different flavor: red velvet, chocolate ganache, strawberry, honey bun and Dominican pineapple. Guests also went home with purple baby blankets, which Vogue describes as “a nod to the epic self portrait shawl Cardi once wore to the airport.”
Cardi B, 25, and 26-year-old Migos member Offset (whom she revealed on Monday that she’d married in September) opened up for Rolling Stone‘s July cover story about their loving relationship and how they’re preparing for their child.
“I want a lit baby shower. My baby shower’s not starting at no 5:00. My s— is going to start at 9 p.m. because that’s how I celebrate, that’s how Caribbean people celebrate,” the pregnant rapper told the magazine, laughing.

“I don’t like baby showers that be at 5 p.m. in the backyard, eating, cooking hors d’oeuvres. Nah,” she added. “S—, I might even drink some red wine. Red wine’s healthy, right?”
Cardi B — who was dressed in a light-pink bump-hugging dress and lots of sparkling jewels for her shower — posted a video Monday showing off her baby bump in a red dress while dancing and lip-syncing to her hit “I Like It.”
Also on Monday, TMZ reported Cardi B had registered for a BEABA Babycook set ($150), a battery-powered mini ride-on Bentley Bentayga ($490) and a Moses bassinet the outlet reported as costing $2,799, with an $839 extra fee for gold-leaf covering.
The mom-to-be herself tweeted on Saturday, “Baby shower planning makes me not even wanna do a wedding 😩😩😩s— soo overwhelming 🙄🙄.”
In a Wednesday tweet, she wrote, “I was planning to have 2 babyshowers …One in NY and one in Atl but my doctor told me i can’t fly nomore ☹️☹️now i have to fly 60 people to Atlanta😩I always bragged about having 2 big families until now 😩😩😩😩”
