After months of speculation and many pregnancy rumours denial, 25-year-old Cardi B revealed to the world during an appearance on Saturday Night Live that she was expecting her first child with fiancé Offset.
Cardi B revealed a massive baby bump during her first appearance on Saturday Night Live.
Less than 24 hours after the baby bump reveal, the rapper, whose first studio album Invasion of Privacy debuted on Friday, took to social media to thank her fans and well-wishers, and in a now deleted Instagram post, explain why it took her so long to confirm she was pregnant.
According to Cardi B, she didn’t want to confirm her pregnancy because she knew people would want to scrutinize everything and try to destroy something that was supposed to be a blessing!
Just then, Cardi B’s sister, Hennessy Carolina, revealed Cardi B was pregnant with a baby girl, a post she later quickly edited.
For 25-year-old Cardi B – who became engaged to Offset in October last year, this would be her first child.
25-year-old Offset is the father of three children with three different women – two sons, Jordan and Kody, and a daughter Kalea Marie.
While two of his kids: daughter Kalea Marie and son Kody were born just days apart, his oldest child, son Jordan, is seven years old.
When Cardi B accepted Offset’s proposal, she also said ‘yes’ to being a stepmom to Offset’s 3 kids and reports say she couldn’t be happier, despite the drama.
At the beginning of December, 2017, Cardi B said that she and Offset plan to spend $1 million on their wedding.
In January 2018, Cardi B surpassed Beyonce as the first female artist to have five Top 10 singles in the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop chart in the same week.
