Not long after, Cardi and Offset canceled the divorce and got back together leaving Shya behind.

Offset Was Doubtful if Kalea Was Indeed His Daughter
As the pregnancy of Kalea’s mom was kept a secret, Offset himself too had doubts if he was the father of Kalea. That suspicion led him to miss out on his daughter’s first few years.
Upon finding out that Shya was pregnant with Kalea, Offset blocked her number. She was so upset that she even offered the DNA tests not knowing that Offset had blocked her because he was with his other woman Jamie.
Eventually, the DNA test was performed and Kalea was indeed Offset’s daughter. For this, Offset felt guilty. He even mentioned it in his song “Father of 4” saying:
Kalia, you my first, first daughter
I missed the first years of your life, I’m sorry
Tell the truth, I ain’t really know if I was your father
Tell the truth, I really don’t even know your mama
At the present time, the father-daughter has bonded well and Offset is very fond of his eldest daughter. He often posts about her on his Instagram too.
