Cardi B took a cue from the Beyonce handbook and confirmed that she is pregnant on live television. The rapper was performing her second song, Be Careful, on April 7’s Saturday Night Live when, outfitted in a form-fitting white dress, the camera panned out to reveal a very visible baby bump. Cardi B is engaged to Migos member Offset.
In footage from backstage following the performance, Cardi B, while making her way among throngs of well-wishers, declares, “I’m finally free.” The rapper had been dogged by rumors for some time. Cardi B performed a mash-up of her hits Bodak Yellow and Bartier Cardi to kick off her SNL debut.
The SNL appearance comes on the heels of Cardi B’s first full-length album, Invasion of Privacy, which was released on April 6. This coming week, she will co-host The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
The Bronx-born rapper recently enlisted new management in Quality Control’s Kevin “Coach K” Lee and Pierre “Pee” Thomas, joining Migos and Lil Yachty on the QC roster of star acts, according to a Variety report.
Cardi B and Migos’ Offset have been dating for over a year, and though rumors swirled around her pregnancy, she had yet to confirm it. Fans also speculated that Be Careful—a song about infidelity—was about Offset, but Cardi later denied that interpretation. “I was just talkin’ about things I relate to and that have happened to me,” she explained.
The couple first collaborated musically on Lick from Cardi’s 2017 mixtape Gangsta Bitch Music, Vol. 2. She recently featured Migos on her song Drip, and she contributed to Migos’ Culture II song MotorSport with Nicki Minaj. Cardi B and Offset also released Um Yea together from Quality Control: Control the Streets, Vol. 1.
