After sharing the big news via Instagram on Tuesday, fans of the 25-year-old “Invasion of Privacy” star wondered if the newborn’s name was a reference to the Migos’ last two albums: “Culture” and “Culture II.”

In a 2017 interview with Fader, Offset, 26, said the "Culture" album title  "is about the culture of hip-hop music."

“It’s time to let the culture be known. It’s time to claim it. And it’s time to claim that we are the Migos, and for people to understand that this is what we did. We did a lot for music. Migos is the culture,” he said.

Kulture’s middle name, Kiari, actually comes from her father. Offset’s legal name is Kiari Kendrell Cephus.
