Cardi B has been captivating audiences since she became the breakout star of VH1's Love and Hip Hop New York. Last year, the 25-year-old broke into the mainstream with her hit "Bodak Yellow." Suddenly, Cardi was smashing records and hitting the headlines, the newest, freshest rap sensation that we just can't get enough of. It's no secret that celebrity comes hand in hand with a lack of privacy - and for the past few months the rumor mill has been whirling with speculation the Bronx native is pregnant. While Cardi and her fiancé Offset have remained quiet on the subject, last night the rap goddess broke her silence in a way Beyoncé herself would admire.
Wearing an incredible white tight-fitting dress, the musician shared the happy news by debuting a blossoming bump while performing her track "Be Careful" on Saturday Night Live. The star performed twice on the show, carefully concealing her stomach for the first song and finishing off with the bumpalicious performance. The camera initially stayed above Cardi's stomach for the majority of the song, before revealing her enviable figure to a cheer from the audience. The debut comes after the singer has opted to wear loose fitting dresses to events such as the Grammys over the past few months. Initially, Cardi told media outlets that she wouldn't be commenting on rumors.
Cardi, real name Balcalis Almanzar, got engaged to rapper Offset of the hip-hop trio Migos in October of last year after dating since the beginning of 2017. After the SNL performance Offset tweeted out his excitement. "Cardi and I look forward to our next chapter together." The dark-haired beauty also took to Twitter later in the evening, slamming her haters in one fell swoop. "I started winning when the whole world was doubting on me! Think Imma lose when my little baby counting on me?"
The "Bartier Cardi" hit-maker is riding the wave of success at the moment, having just dropped her first album Invasion of Privacy on Friday, gaining praise from fans and peers alike. The likes of P Diddy and Missy Elliot have tweeted out their support to the young star. It looks like this is just the start for Cardi B.
