Before they welcome their first child together, Cardi B and Offset grace their first cover together for Rolling Stone.
The power couple shares their love story in the magazine’s upcoming issue, which calls their relationship a “hip-hop love story.” In the Ruven Afanador shoot, Offset—dressed in a red velvet suit—is seen kissing Cardi’s bare baby bump.
The “Bodak Yellow” rapper posted the cover on Instagram after it leaked. “I guess it was too much to ask to wait until the official July release of our @rollingstone cover!” she said. “This cover is so special to me and means so much! Thank you to everyone who helped put this amazing cover together! Even tho it was leaked and suppose to be In gray fuck it. My daughter made it to the Rollin Stone cover !!!!”
Cardi and Offset have already chosen a name for their child, a girl, due next month. “My dude [Offset] named the baby,” she recently told Ellen. “I really like the name. I’ma let him say the name since he named the baby. It’s like, almost tricky, but when it comes out, it’s like, ‘Ah!’”
This is the second Rolling Stone cover for both Cardi and Offset. Cardi previously graced the magazine’s November 2017 cover, while Offset and Migos scored their first cover in January.
The new issue of Rolling Stone officially hits newsstands July 2.
