Cardi B Confirms Pregnancy by Showing Off Bump During SNL Performance

By  | 

It’s about time! News broke that Cardi B is expecting her first child with fiancé Offset back in February, but the rapper shut down the speculation by telling fans she’s “just getting fat.” But even though the 25-year-old continued to deny the rumors, her team allegedly kept telling people that she was, in fact, pregnant. And you know what? They were telling the truth, ’cause Cardi finally confirmed the pregnancy news herself!

The Bronx native made her first appearance on Saturday Night Live over the weekend and showed off her baby bump while performing “Be Careful,” which, ironically, is about Offset cheating on her in the past.

“I’m finally free,” the rapper said as she got off stage, seemingly talking about how she can now be open with fans about her pregnancy.

The 26-year-old posted his own message of excitement on social media after the reveal.

Sources tell TMZ that Cardi is due the first week in July and many people think her sister, Hennessy, accidentally revealed the baby’s gender on Insta.
