Cardi B can't help gushing about 'husband' Offset as she finally drops marriage bomb: "I said I do"
Just after Offset let it slip that Cardi B was his wife, the singer herself confirmed that the duo had been married since September last year.
It looks like all those wedding murmurs about the music power couple Cardi B and Offset were after all true. For the longest time, speculations have been rife about the 'Bodak Yellow' hitmaker tying the knot with her rapper boyfriend in secret. While the pair never really acknowledged the grapevine rumors officially, the cat is finally out of the bag, especially after Cardi B's touching social media post.
"There are so many moments that I share with the world and there are moments that I want to keep for myself! Getting married was one of those moments!" the 25-year-old songstress shared on Twitter on Monday, June 25. Confirming the now-not-so whirlwind reports of her getting married, however, Cardi B also opened up about the moment when she and the Migos singer officiated their relationship in a super hush-hush ceremony back in September last year.
"Our relationship was so new breaking up and making up and we had a lot of growing to do but we was so in love we didn't want to lose each other," the MotorSport singer shared. She continued, "One morning in September we woke up and decided to get married." Giving a miss to the pomp and show, the headline-grabbing duo went for a low-key ceremony, exchanging their vows in the presence of each other and just another relative.
"We found someone to marry us, and she did, just the two of us and my cousin. I said I do, with no dress, no makeup and no ring! I appreciate and love my husband so much for still wanting for me have that special moment that every girl dreams of when he got down on his knee and put a ring on my finger and he did that for me!!" Cardi B shared, alluding to her October engagement when Offset - real name Kiari Kendrell Cephus - proposed to his girlfriend. At the Power 99's Powerhouse in Philadelphia, the Walk It Talk It hitmaker got all romantic, popping the question to Cardi B with an 8-carat diamond ring.
Concluding her breaking-the-news post, Cardi B wrote: "Well now since you lil nosey f**** know at least ya can stop saying I had a baby out of wedlock." Reports have been hinting about the pair's wedding for months now, with TMZ even claiming that the two have been married for a little less than a year. Substantiating their claims, the celebrity news site, cited Cardi B and Offset's marriage certificate as well, proving that the ceremony indeed took place in September 2017 in Atlanta, Georgia.
The last straw came in the form of a sudden slip from Offset himself, who while accepting the BET best group award, dropped the W-word, of so casually. “Thank God, I thank my wife, you should thank yours,” he said, amidst rumors of their secret marriage - which as it turns out is not so secret anymore.
Indeed, congratulations are in order for the couple as they now look forward to welcoming a baby together.
