Cardi B has stepped in to defend her husband, Offset, after he gave their two-year-old daughter, Kulture, a Hermes Birkin bag worth over £10,000.

The bags, which are named after actress, Jane Birkin, are considered by fashion lovers around the world as collectors items, which is the reason behind their high value.

The rapper shared a video on Instagram of him gifting the pink bag to his two-year-old.

He captioned the video: “Late is better then never I Birkin my baby,” but confused fans commented that Kulture had no idea what the bag was.

Later in the day, Cardi B, 27, went onto Instagram Stories to defend Offset’s decision to buy their daughter the bag.

In the series of videos, Cardi B said: “I know when celebrities buy their kids jewellery and designer s**t, people be like ‘kids don’t care about that, they only care about toys and candy.’

“But the thing is, kids also go outside. Kids go to restaurants, kids go to fancy places. Celebrity kids, they go do red carpets.

“And if I’m fly, and daddy’s fly, then so is the kid. If I’m wearing Cha-nay-nay (Chanel), my kid’s having the same thing. It’s not up to what the kids like. If it was the kids, they’d be outside in diapers.

“No, cause if I was looking like a bad b**ch, expensive b**ch, and I had my kid looking like a bum bum, then y’all would be talking s**t.

“So, I’m not mad that daddy bought baby a Birkin. She’s gonna match mommy.”

The series of videos didn’t go very far to satiate the masses, who shared their thoughts on the purchase under Offset’s Instagram post.

“She’s about to put crayons, snacks, wrappers and some open gummy candies in a purse that’s worth more than my life on the black market,” one of the most liked comments said.

“She doesn’t even know what she just got,” another said in response to Kulture seemingly placing the bag back in the box after two seconds.

“She just wants toys,” another observed.

The choice of present did go down well with many people, though, who said that she might not appreciate it now, but she will when she’s older.

Cardi B only recently posted a photo of herself wearing a vintage Chanel dress and aqua green Birkin, showing that expensive taste really does run in the family.
