The secret is out of the bag! Cardi B is pregnant with her first child with rapper/fiance Offset of Migos.
The news was confirmed during the 25-year-old's appearance at last weekend's Saturday Night Live. To promote her new (and first!) studio album, Cardi B performed "Be Careful," one of her most buzzed new tracks from Invasion of Privacy and, of course, her most popular hits, "Bodak Yellow" and "Bartier Cardi."
Wanting Some Privacy
The "fast-rising woman of rap" has been keeping her pregnancy a secret, but earlier this year, rumors started spreading that she is, indeed, with child. Since then, Cardi B has been dodging questions and the paparazzi to hide her pregnancy.
She and her fiance and collaborator even denied the rumors in a couple of interviews. During a conversation with Beats 1 Radio, the rapper spoke about needing some privacy.
"I just feel like people just gotta 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," she said about the rumors. "I have been so open to people about myself. People cannot expect me to be open about everything."
Wearing a skin-tight white bodycon dress and sharp cat-eye sunglasses, Cardi B came out onstage with an obvious baby bump.

Following her appearance on SNL, iHeartRadio's Best New Artist addressed the exciting announcement and called out the naysayers who criticize her decision to have a baby so early in her career.
"This is why I did not wanted to say nothing," said Cardi B on an Instagram Stories. "People be so thirsty to scrutinize and try to destroy something that i[s] supposed to be a blessing."
In another post, she said that nothing will stop her especially now that she has a baby on the way.

Offset, on his own account, addressed the reveal by posting a photo of himself and his girl.
"Thank you for all of your support," he wrote on the caption. "We feel so blessed."
The Migos member proposed to Cardi B back in October during a performance in Philadelphia. The couple has not set a date for their holy matrimony and has postponed planning because of their busy schedules.
