It was a big, big week for Cardi B. Her first studio album, “Invasion of Privacy,” was released Friday and is bound to top the Billboard 200 chart. She debuted on “Saturday Night Live.” And, after months of rumors, she officially revealed her pregnancy.
In the middle of “Be Careful,” her second song during last week’s SNL, the camera panned out on Cardi in a tight-fitting white dress, showing an unmistakable baby bump.
Offset, of the group Migos, is the father. The two rappers announced their engagement in October.
“Thank you for all of your support,” Offset posted on Instagram of the pregnancy news. “We feel so blessed.”
The pregnancy speculation began in February when TMZ published an item that Cardi was a few months along and didn’t want to be in a “party atmosphere” after her performances during Super Bowl weekend. Cardi responded directly on Instagram, writing, “I’m just getting fat. Let me fat in peace.”
“This is why I did not wanted to say nothing,” Cardi wrote in a now-deleted Instagram Story post after her SNL performance. “People be so thirsty to scrutinize and try to destroy something that it suppose be a blessing.”
