Rumors of Cardi B being pregnant have been circulating the internet for months. For a while we thought these were just chismes, but the rapper never confirmed they weren’t true. She has also been spotted wearing bigger clothes lately, which is why we weren’t shocked when she revealed her baby bump on last night’s Saturday Night Live.
The Dominican-Trinidadian artist who participated in the show’s comical skits also performed “Be Careful” from her debut album Invasion of Privacy (which dropped on Friday, April 6 and has already gone gold BTW). Cardi hit the stage in a beautiful, white skin-tight dress that revealed a baby bump but not immediately though. Did we mention the dress was designed by Christian Siriano?
For us watching from home, the cameras initially only showed Cardi from the waist up. It was towards the ends of the performance when the cameras panned down, revealing her bump to an excited audience. She looked gorgeous by the way!
Apparently Cardi had been dying to share this news because her manager even posted after the performance, a backstage video clip of her saying “I’m finally free.”It looks like all these months having to stay silent about her pregnancy with fiancé Offset, was getting exhausting. Who could blame her?
Speaking of Offset, he also confirmed the wonderful baby news on his Instagram.
Cardi herself hasn’t shared anything to her IG or Twitter regarding the pregnancy yet. But we will probably hear more about it on Monday, April 9 when she co-hosts The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. A huge congrats to Cardi B and Offset! We can’t wait to follow her along this journey to motherhood.
