After several weeks of speculation, rumors and loose fitted dresses, it’s finally official! Cardi B is expecting a child with her boyfriend, rapper Offset. The couple got engaged in October of 2017, when he proposed to her on-stage during a concert in Philadelphia and by December 2017 there were reports suggesting that the ‘Bodak Yellow’ singer had a bun in the oven but no confirmation was received from the couple. But the rapper has finally made a public announcement, that too on television! While performing the track ‘Be Careful’ while making a guest appearance on Saturday Night Live, she donned a form fitted custom-made white Christian Siriano gown during her second performance, which accentuated her belly, revealing the baby bump she had made sure to hide for the past couple of weeks with loose fitted attire. The designer also took to his Twitter to congratulate the rapper, writing, “Congratulations to my girl @iamcardib, new baby on the way! You looked stunning tonight in custom Siriano on @nbcsnl. It was an honor." The camera first focused on a headshot of the singer on stage then panned out while she belted her song, slowly bringing her belly into the shot. The audience cheered and clapped while the songstress happily finished her performance, later posting a video on her social media, happily exclaiming that she’s “finally free”, in reference to her months of hiding her pregnancy. She is also very far along in her pregnancy, probably in her second trimester.
Baby daddy Offset then tweeted “Cardi and I look forward to our next chapter together”, accompanied with an older picture of them happily gazing at one another. The official SNL Twitter account also joined in, tweeting, “Congratulations!” to their guest star of that evening. She was also congratulated by stars Rihanna and 50 Cent on social media. No due date has been announced but what we do know is that Offset has three children already via previous relationships and already knows what it is like to be a dad. Even though the songstress is pregnant, she is still on the grind, taking no time off. Her first studio album Invasion Of Privacy debuted on Friday and the 25-yeard-old doesn’t seem to be taking a break anytime soon.
