It’s official: Cardi B is pregnant, and her baby bump got a formal debut on Saturday Night Live. The rapper, 25, showed off her baby bump in a white gown, revealing she is expecting her first child with fiancé Offset.
The news comes after much speculation that the “Finesse” rapper was pregnant.
TMZ asked Offset, 26, earlier this month if his fiancée was expecting, but he denied that a baby was on the way.
Cardi B dropped her first album, Invasion of Privacy, on April 6 and told her fans that for answers about the pregnancy, they’d have to listen to her music.
“I have been so open to people about myself. People cannot expect me to be open about everything,” she told Apple Music’s Beats 1 host Ebro Darden. “Certain things to me, it has to be private. You cannot invade my privacy. I’m not a damn animal at the zoo that you could just see everything. No! People just will find out more. If it arrives and if it don’t arrive, then you gonna know what the f–k is goin’ on.”
But after the performance, Cardi was captured backstage exclaiming “I’m finally free!” while being congratulated on her big announcement.

Offset also took to social media to thank everyone for their support with the caption “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.”
Offset proposed to Cardi B at a Philadelphia concert in October 2017. The “Bad and Boujee” rapper got down on one knee in front of the crowd and presented her with an 8-carat ring.
Cardi will likely share more details about the happy news on Monday (April 9), when she co-hosts The Tonight Show alongside Jimmy Fallon.
What a week for Bardi! So excited for the mom-to-be…Congrats!!!
