After what would fall under the worst kept secret EVER, Cardi B announced that she and Offset are indeed expecting their first child together.
For months, there’s been speculation that the rapper was pregnant, but after being asked a slew of times by the media, Cardi continued to shy away from the truth. That is … until Saturday night.
During her appearance on Saturday Night Live, the New York native showed off her growing baby bump in a white body con gown. Following her performance on the late night show, SNL officially congratulated the realty star with a tweet that read: “Congratulations @iamcardib! #SNL.”
So now that the cat’s out of the bag, why did the rapper keep her pregnancy so hush-hush? Taking to Instagram following the show, Cardi wrote, “This is why i did not wanted to say nothing.”
In the IG story post, that has since been deleted, she explained, “People be so thirsty to scrutinize and try to destroy something that [is] suppose to be a blessing.”
Cardi and Offset are due this July. The bundle of joy will be the first for Cardi and the fourth for Offset, who shares three children from a previous relationship.
