Cardi B loves being a mom to her daughter Kulture Kiari, but she's not ready to give her 6-month-old baby girl a sibling just yet
The rapper, 26 — who shares her only child with husband Offset — sat down with PEOPLE for a candid interview in Atlanta ahead of the Super Bowl, where she revealed that she’s waiting a bit before trying for baby No. 2.
“I want a second child, but I got so much things to do first. It’s like, I want to learn more, you know?” said Cardi, who will appear in a Pepsi commercial set to air during the big game. “It’s not that easy to have a child, so you just want to learn more and more and the process and wait ’til they get a little bit bigger.”
“Right now, a baby requires 24/7 attention so imagine two?” she asked. “That’s why when people have twins, I honestly … I don’t know how [they do] it. It’s hard!”

Of course, Cardi has already learned a lot of lessons about motherhood — one being that babies tend to ruin their clothes, no matter what expensive outfit they’re wearing.
“She has so much name brands, and she just throws up in all of them,” joked Cardi.
“She always ends up [wearing] Target pajamas. I look at every video and pictures and she got Target pajamas!” Cardi added. “By the time I take a picture we want [of her in] very pretty, expensive clothes, she throws up on it, she s—s on it, or she drools all over it. Things never go as you plan.”
Cardi was able to get one snap of Kulture in her designer duds. Back in January, the “Bodak Yellow” singer shared a photo of herself holding her daughter on a private yacht, the tiny tot wearing a Versace hooded puffer.
The onesie retails for $830 on the designer’s website, and is also available on farfetch.com for a bit cheaper, at $600.
Elsewhere in her interview, Cardi opened up about her relationship with Offset.
Though she and the 27-year-old Migos rapper were both pretty public about their breakup and recent reconciliation, leading to an onslaught of media reports, Cardi said that she tries to tune out the spotlight when it comes to their time together.
“My relationship — my marriage — is not for them. It’s not for them,” she said. “It’s very personal.”
The two are “just taking things slow,” Cardi said. “We have a baby right now. That’s our real big focus.”
“I feel like we just really are a very regular couple. We just do regular things,” the Bronx native said. “I just feel like: We’re famous … we’re really popular right now — I just don’t know the obsession, like I feel like everything we do is a big deal. Even before the bad scandals, just from the first time they seen us together, it was just like this big, crazy deal.”
“I hang out with him, I talk to him every day and we do our thing,” she said of Offset. “It’s just like — to make things perfect … it takes time. You know, f—ing and hanging out doesn’t mean that you guys are on a perfect note, it takes time. It takes time. And it’s a marriage and there’s a child involved and family involved.”
While in Atlanta for the Super Bowl, Cardi said she and Offset, a Georgia native, have plans to spend time together in the place he knows best. (Their daughter didn’t make the trip south: “I just felt like it was too hectic for her,” Cardi explained.)
“This is his city,” Cardi, who is up for five Grammy awards later this month, told PEOPLE. “And I don’t really know much about this city. I know that this city’s almost like the Wild Wild West, so I know that he protect me the most. He knows everything.”
