There had been rumors going around about Cardi B expecting her first child with fiancé Offset for a while. And on Saturday night, the rapper—fresh off a certified-gold debut album and the announcement of a design collaboration with Instagram-influencer favorite Fashion Nova—addressed them head-on and in her own time. Cardi B is pregnant!
Fans had been speculating about this for months—let’s not forget that instantly iconic moment in February when she responded to an Instagram commenter who asked about her belly with: “no bitch I’m just getting fat .Let me fat in peace”
Her official announcement was just as memorable (and viral). She made her debut on Saturday Night Live, and during her performance of “Be Careful,” she appeared on stage in a formfitting ruched white dress custom-designed by Christian Siriano that put the baby bump front, center, and not at all ambiguous.
Here she is backstage, looking jubilant.
Cardi B then took to Twitter to confirm the news.
Offset also confirmed the news on Instagram late Saturday night. “T H A N K Y O U F O R A L L O F Y O U R S U P P O R T. W E F E E L S O B L E S S E D.”
Congrats to the soon-to-be parents!
