[by Moloy Dey] For the last month, Cardi B has been in the spotlight for a number of reasons, with the biggest reason being her pregnancy announcement. For the longest time social media and Hollywood gossip tabloids were drowning in speculations regarding her pregnancy.
But the new queen of pop was sly about the whole deal wearing strategic clothing for her public appearances to hide the baby bump! One of the best of the lot being a metallic pink cute but edgy outfit which she slayed like a rockstar. She even went online to shut people down, writing on her Instagram that she was just getting fat and she’d appreciate it if she could be fat in peace.
But that didn’t shut down the rumour train and the whole controversy came to an end (or shall we say just began) when Cardi finally went on Saturday Night Live on April 7th for a performance and her baby bump was in full display. She seemed pretty late into the pregnancy, at least her second trimester!
The father is none other than Offset, one-third of the Hip-Hop trio Migos, with whom Cardi is engaged. Rumours have also been rife about whether or not the couple would tie the knot before the baby arrives. But sources close to Cardi have revealed that she doesn’t want to get married at all and definitely wants to focus on her album but at the same time, she knew Offset is a great father
and they could definitely raise a child together. Offset has three children from an earlier marriage. Some sources also say that Offset is just sticking around because he intends to ride on Cardi B’s rising fame and money. But as of now the mother and father seem to be in sync and happy with one another. Cardi revealed that offset has already picked a name for their child, though she hasn’t revealed the gender yet.
Cardi B’s new Album Invasion of Privacy also released the same week she announced her pregnancy. And as has been the case with Cardi’s rising popularity as a musician, her debut album has also been topping charts and making a whole lot of money. The album has already amassed 2.6 million tweets and currently she has a whopping 3 million followers on Twitter! The album has been receiving love from fans all over as well as good reviews and critical acclaim.
The tracks most talked about from the album are I like it and Be careful, the second one being the song she sang while revealing her pregnancy to the world on SNL.
Cardi had to cancel her tour dates due to the physical constraints that come with having another human growing inside you. She took to social media to let her fans know that she will be taking a break after her performance at Broccoli Weekend Festival and would get back to action on the last leg on Bruno Mars’ 24k Magic Tour in September.
We hope Cardi B and Offset have a beautiful baby and the world can’t wait for it to happen!
