Big congratulations, you two. The birth of a child is one of the greatest moments in life. Pure joy and love.

But others just couldn’t get past the name.

Tbh, celebrities have long been giving their children unexpected names. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West named their children North and Saint. Beyoncé named her first child Blue Ivy. How is Kulture that different?

Like, people were just so confused.

You could hear the eye rolls and facepalms everywhere you went after the news dropped. But, again, other celebrities have used truly weird names for their children.

Then came the jokes.

That’s crazy. You might want to get your house checked by a priest if furniture is floating around. It’s not a normal thing to happen.

Twitter users even found Harry Potter references inspiration.

Who here is a Harry Potter fan? If that’s you, then you understand just how easily Kulture Kiari Cephus could be a spell.

The baby’s name has already started to become an urban legend.

Now all Cardi B fans know what they have to do to get Cardi B to show up at their house. Now watch all her fans try this summoning charm.

The overall theme, however, is just astonishment.

It just wasn’t what anyone was expecting. Like, at all. But at the same time, it is kind of cute so who knows how you should really feel.

Everyone is assuming that those Kardashian ladies are quaking.

No, Kris. You don’t get to corner the market for names that start with “K.” Anyone can name their child what they want.

Some true fans pointed out that the name is not a surprise considering the parents’ names.

This tweet really does clear things up. Like, Kiari Cephus are family names now, thanks to Offset. How many of you are walking around with names passed down from generation to generation.

People were recreating some of the most famous memes because Twitter.

Surely there were several people to had to really squint to figure out the name. This man couldn’t have been the only one.

The name has even inspired non-fans to give Cardi B some love this week.

You just have to respect Cardi B’s commitment to living her best and most authentic life. Be like Cardi B, y’all.

There might also be some concern brewing here.

CREDIT: @Misterlyanu / Twitter

Though, it would be more interesting if you think she named her child Culture instead of Kulture. Like, there is no way to know that there is a “K” instead of a “C” if you don’t say so.

Cardi B’s fans started to respond to the chatter on Twitter as if speaking as Cardi B.

CREDIT: @yoyotrav / Twitter

That’s right. Imagine a young Cardi B being questioned about her choices. Surely she would not take things lightly when questioned.

Some people can’t be fooled and realized the Offset might be after free press.

CREDIT: @kxng_josiah17 / Twitter

In case you didn’t know. Offset is a member of the band Migos. They have three albums and their second is called “Culture” and their third is called “Culture II.” Maybe he was looking for free press.

Yeah, fans aren’t fooled by the name.

CREDIT: @_Leeeelo / Twitter

Hopefully that’s not where the name came from but we have to wait for Cardi B to explain the name choice before we know the truth.

This user totally understood the importance of the name Cardi B and Offset chose.

CREDIT: @BritniDWrites / Twitter

Could you imagine being a Jennifer or a Yolanda in a home with Belcalis and Kiari? That would be so boring.

Others just made their own joke names.

CREDIT: @SavinTheBees / Twitter

Some people didn’t get the joke, obviously. Clearly the Twitter user knows how to make comedy totally unaccessible.

A few brave souls didn’t think twice about the name and just wanted to know about Cardi B.

CREDIT: @WRBolen / Twitter

It would be pretty amazing to at least hear the audio from the delivery room. She already has the greatest sound library at her vocal cords. We just want to hear her when she is under pressure.

But the greatest thought of all is this one right here.

It would be pretty awesome to see that your mom was owning the music charts when she was pregnant with you.

19 Facts You Didn't Know About The Boy Band Menudo

19 Facts You Didn’t Know About The Boy Band Menudo

If you don’t know who the boy band Menudo is, then you didn’t grow up in the 80’s. They dropped their first album in 1977 and were together for 22 years. By together, I mean that they kept replacing the aging boys with fresh, new young faces, making Menudo the band you’d fight to join.

Here’s what we didn’t know about them growing up.

1. They were the first Latino boy band ever.

The band was formed by Puerto Rican producer Edgardo Díaz in the 1970s. The band reached it’s peak in the ’90s with several hit songs. Díaz was also the man who created the group La Pandilla.

2. Menudo went punk rock in the ’80s.

The band had a total image makeover, and so did their music. It went from “bubblegum pop” to rock. They even released an album called “Somos Los Hijos del Rock.” Not on the nose at all.

3. Ricky Martin made his first big break with Menudo.

Can you spot mi Ricky? He was just 12 years old. Half the Puerto Rican population was obsessed with them, including my mother. They brought great glory to our little island.

4.  Ricky Martin left after 5 years with Menudo for telenovelas.

Ricky was signed onto a Mexican telenovela, that every single one of our mother’s watched, called “Alcanzar una estrella.” And with that, a star was born.

5. Draco Rosa was in Menudo at the same time as Ricky.

They’re rumored to be best friends to this day. Rosa is known for writing and producing many of Ricky’s later hit singles, including “María,” “La Vida Loca,” “She Bangs” and “Shake Your Bon-Bon.” 

Gracias por su servicio. 🙏

6. The two even worked on a single together recently.

They came together on a music video that has over 10 million views where both are in a foggy “Pride and Prejudice” esque setting serenading an extremely thin woman. Show me Ricky serenading his husband and I’ll scream for it.

7. The band took a break in the late 90’s and rebooted in 2007 with this look:

Oh man. The early 2000s was a crazy time for fashion. See that guy in the middle? You might recognize his face from someplace more recent.

8. Troy Kurtis went on to place third in “The X Factor” in 2012.

He auditioned entirely in Spanish and reportedly seduced judges Demi Lovato and Britney Spears with a “very sexy” performance (Britney Spears’ words, not mine). I’m throwing back and watching this season again.

9. The band manager would cut any member who started going through puberty.

One member even remembers finding out he was going to go during an interview with producer Díaz. The interviewer asked who was going to go next, and he just pointed at that guy. #Brutal

10. During the 2016 elections #fakenews came out that Marco Rubio was in Menudo.

Which was hilarious at best and a problematic hit for Latinos at worst. We wish he did make it to Menudo, so maybe he wouldn’t have turned out so conservative.

11. Menudo was in the Uno Rulebook.

Just kidding. Could you imagine what their lives would be like if they had to do that?

12. Luis Fonsi tried out for Menudo, but didn’t make the cut.

CREDIT: @luisfonsi / Twitter

Luis Fonsi auditioned for Menudo when he was just ten years old. “I got called back. I got to the semifinals. This is probably the most exciting time in my life. Menudo was Menudo.”

“I passed the singing, I passed the dancing, but you know what I failed? The English.”

13. You can buy vintage Menudo action dolls for $70 on Etsy.

Some figurines go for $15, but you probably don’t want those guys. You probably want Ricky or Draco. They’re the money.

14. Menudo starred as themselves in two feature films.

There was such a huge market for Menudo content, they couldn’t create it fast enough.

“Una Aventura Llamada Menudo” and “Menudo: La Película” were a big deal for the boys themselves, because most of them went on to star in telenovelas. Only a couple are known for their music to this day.

15. Telemundo Puerto Rico even gave them a television show.

Mostly, there was a lot of pelvis thrusting, but every year it hosted a beauty pageant called “La chica de Menudo.” The winner would sometimes be seen in music videos or at their Puerto Rican concerts. #score

16. Menudo even made it’s way into it’s own MTV’s reality series.

“Road to Menudo” and “Making Menudo” were a blast. It was basically like American Idol, except they shoved a bunch of Puerto Rican boys into a house together, forced them to compete, and promise them a place in Menudo.

17. Their last single was written by Bruno Mars in 2008.

CREDIT: menudo / YouTube

It was called “Lost”, and …then the band, the fame, the #menudomania all faded away.

18. This crew, tho, will always live in our hearts…

CREDIT: Popsugar / Pinterest

As the kids who put Puerto Rico on the map and kept it there. Te amo, Ricky, Rubén, Sergio, Robert y Angelo!

19. All in all, Menudo was, is, and forever will be the best boy band of all time. 🏆

When One Direction started becoming a thing, everyone was quick to reminisce about the good old days with the original Juan Direction.
