The "Bodak Yellow" rapper and her baby daddy share their "hip-hop love story" with the magazine, spilling on their unplanned pregnancy, her plans for their baby girl and, via a political tangent, her feelings on gun control and POTUS.
Keep reading for the five biggest takeaways from their joint interview:
She's Disgusted with Trump
"Every artist has explained how harmful he is. He has made divisions in this country – he almost made a crazy civil war between the blacks and the whites. He has proven himself to be a madman so many times, and proven himself to be disrespectful to women, and that still hasn't gotten him impeached," she told the publication, urging her fans to vote.
"Clinton got impeached for cheating on his wife, and it's so clear that this n---a has sex with so many porn stars, and he's just been shown to be a dickhead, and it's like, 'Nope.'"
The magazine notes that she believes gun laws should include mental evaluations, but doesn't want restrictions to get to a place where the Second Amendment goes away.
"God forbid, the government tries to take us over, and we can't defend ourselves because we don't have no weapons," she said. "How do you think American colonizers went to Africa and it was so easy for them to get those people? Because they had guns. No matter what weapon you have, you can't beat a gun. They have weapons like nuclear bombs that we don't have. So imagine us not having any weapons at all."
"I want a lit baby shower," Cardi hilariously told the mag.
"My baby shower's not starting at no 5:00. My shit is going to start at 9 p.m. because that's how I celebrate, that's how Caribbean people celebrate," she continued, laughing. "I don't like baby showers that be at 5 p.m. in the backyard, eating, cooking hors d'oeuvres. Nah. Shit, I might even drink some red wine. Red wine's healthy, right?"
That's when Offset chimed in, saying she better not let his mother catch her with a glass of vino in her hand. "She's going to have a fit," he joked.
Offset already has three children from three previous relationships, but Cardi DGAF about that.
"People want to make fun of me, saying I'm the fourth baby mom ... I know I'm not having a baby with a shitty-ass man," she explained. Offset also said they "really love each other" and he's proud of all her success, adding, "You'll lose your wife trying to stop them from being the best they can."
Their pregnancy wasn't planned and Cardi was worried about what it could mean for her career if she kept the baby. "He said, 'What do you mean, what are you going to do? You're going to keep it,'" she recalled of Offset's reaction.
"A lot of successful women have kids, and a lot of successful artists have kids, but not at the peak of their career," she said of her own thought process.
After embracing pregnancy, Cardi said she wants to have her baby girl with her everywhere she goes after giving birth. "Only time I don't have my baby with me is when I'm getting my hair done, makeup done, performing," she explained. "I don't want to miss one second. I don't want to miss no smiles, I don't want to miss no new movement, I don't want the baby to confuse me and the babysitter."
Cardi made headlines for tweeting, "It's amazing how Donald Glover and Childish Gambino look soo much alike. I think they secretly the same person!!! Soo dope!!"
While some were wondering whether she was joking at the time, she confirmed she really didn't know they were the same guy.
"When you look for him on Apple, his covers are not his face, so how the f--k am I supposed to know him?" said explained. "Everybody's judging me and calling me stupid, and it's like, 'F--k ya, leave me alone.'"
