Cardi B is officially pregnant! After denying rumors that she was expecting a child with future hubby Offset of Migos for months, she finally decided to drop the charade and reveal her pregnancy in style - showing off her baby bump in a tight white dress during a performance on Saturday Night Live, hosted by 'Black Panther' star Chadwick Boseman.

The 'Love & Hip Hop: New York' star took the stage to perform her new single 'Be Careful' off her debut studio album 'Invasion of Privacy' that she dropped on April 6, 2018. The album has seen explosive success, already receiving a Gold certification from the Recording Industry Association of America due to the explosive success of singles 'Bodak Yellow' and 'Bartier Cardi' from the album.

The 25-year-old rapper's first performance of the night was a medley of her hit songs, 'Bodak Yellow' and 'Bartier Cardi,' which she performed in a showy black-and-white outfit. While her sleek top hugged her figure and emphasized her upper torso, her lower body and her belly were hidden from view by large feathers.

Cardi certainly was looking to make her big reveal as showy as possible, as she saved it for her second performance, in which she wore a long, white evening gown designed by Christian Siriano. The rapper began her song with the cameras pointed at her face, before slowly panning away to reveal her torso and eventually, her massive baby bump.

The rapper spat some verses to a dim blue background as a spotlight turned on her, highlighting her rather voluminous stomach. The secret now in the open, the rapper was visibly relieved as a video of her backstage posted to Instagram showed her throwing her hands up and screaming in delight, "I'm finally free" as friends and family cheered her on.



Cardi has maintained that she won't address rumors that she is going to have a baby with Offset, choosing to keep things private despite her usual unfiltered manner. If anything, the title of her first album, 'Invasion of Privacy' should be an indicator of what the reality star considers questions about her hitherto unconfirmed baby to be.

In an interview with Apple Music, Cardi told Ebro Darden, "I feel like people just got to tune in a little bit on my album and they will know a little bit more because I can't address all the rumors and everything. I have been so open to people about myself. People cannot expect me to be open about everything. Certain things to me, it has to be private. You cannot invade my privacy."

Cardi also talked about being the subject of gossip in an interview for Beats 1 Radio, saying that people would only know if she were having a baby or not when it arrives. "I'm not a damn animal at the zoo that you just could see everything, no. People will just find out more. If it arrives, if it don't arrive, then you gonna know what the f**k is going on."

She has been engaged to Migos crew member Offset since he proposed to her in Philadelphia during the Powerhouse concert last October. She revealed at the end of the year that the two would have a lavish million-dollar wedding. Cardi certainly can afford it, as her single 'Bodak Yellow' broke records by topping the Billboard Hot 100 three weeks in a row, making her only the fifth female rapper to achieve such a feat in the history of the charts.
