Those Italian cookies look delish.
A month after Cardi B welcomed her second child with Offset on Sept. 4, she’s still receiving gifts congratulating her on her new bundle of joy. On Monday, Oct. 4, the rapper shared several videos on her Instagram Story in which she opened presents from celebrities like Lizzo and Mickey Guyton, as well as brands like Dolce & Gabbana and LolaVie. She got everything from baby clothes to lotion and body wash, plus more personal gifts from longtime friends and collaborators. Get this: Selena Gomez sent Cardi B’s newborn son the sweetest gift basket filled with toys, treats, and stuffed animals.
Gomez and Cardi B have been friends for years. They first connected in 2018 when they collaborated with DJ Snake and Ozuna to drop their hit single “Taki Taki.” After they starred in the song’s music video together, the two remained in touch and eventually became close. When Cardi B announced she was pregnant on Instagram on June 27, Gomez was one of the first celebrities to congratulate the rapper, commenting, “Another angel. Love you Momma.”
Fast forward to Oct. 4, when Cardi B revealed Gomez sent her a huge gift basket congratulating her on the arrival of her baby. “I got this beautiful gift basket for ‘son, son’ with this little bear from Selena Gomez,” Cardi said in the video. (Technically, it’s a stuffed elephant, but that’s besides the point because the plush is so adorable.) Cardi added, “It’s so cute, and it’s got treats for me. You know when I’m rocking the baby to sleep at night, you know I get hungry at the nighttime ... This is so cute! Thank you Selena Gomez, you’re adorable.”
The basket featured an assortment of gifts inside, including the elephant plush, and treats like Frolletti (aka, a brand of Italian cookies). It was so nice of Gomez to send presents for both Cardi and her baby. Take a look at Cardi’s video below.
Clearly, Gomez is a fantastic gift giver.
