Cardi B achieved a major goal and purchased her mother a “dream home” in an undisclosed New York neighborhood.
The Bronx native, 26, uploaded two videos to Instagram on Monday showcasing the lavish home to her fans. She expressed how proud was to be able to make the purchase after trying the year before.
“The happiest day of my life,” Cardi said as she walked through the kitchen. “Last year, I was so thirsty to buy my mom a home , and I could only afford a house that cost $600,000, and you know, we live in New York so cribs that look like that, look like s**t.”
The 26-year-old said she waited, and she worked hard to be able to afford the mansion. Cardi is most joyous Kulture, her 4-month-old infant daughter with husband Offset, will be able to visit her grandmother is such a luxurious setting.
“I’m emotional. I already did the crying,” Cardi revealed. “When my daughter visits her grandma’s house she’s going to come here with her friends.”
The “I Like It” rapper said her favorite part of the home is the basement, a spacious area with a home theater decked out with red carpeting.
“Can’t wait until all my family comes here, Thanksgiving, everything. So happy,” she exclaimed.
“Stay down till you come up!” Cardi captioned the touching video post.
She continued, “Its always been a dream to buy my mother a house .Last year i was so thirsty to buy my mom a house but the ones i was interested for her weren’t at my price range .I worked and worked and now I’m here !!”
“Thank you everybody who supported me to make my childhood dreams come true! Buy my momma a house !!…..don’t ask me for s**t mother**kers i got big girls bills 😩😩!” Cardi concluded.
