International hip-hop star Cardi B (whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar) has been very secretive when it comes to her pregnancy. The international tried to mask her pregnancy for as long as she could and, on an Instagram post, she replied to a fan hinting that she might be pregnant with a rather honest and humorous answer: ”No, I’m just getting fat. Let me fat in peace, [sic].”. Well, it turns out the Kardashian-Jenner family friend is pregnant with her boyfriend Offset, a prominent member of the hip-hop collective Migos. Her pregnancy has been on every pop culture media outlet and we can’t just get enough.
Recently, in an interview with renowned radio host Howard Stern, Cardi admitted she’s having a baby girl. After days of assumptions, her fans could finally ease their minds with the news of her baby’s gender.
Speaking to the New York Times about her “extremely heavy” Jeremy Scott lavish gown, she admitted, “shorty weighs three and a half pounds.”
She added: “She do. She do weigh three and a half pounds. That’s pretty good for seven months, right? Because I was born five pounds.”
Cardi B’s fiance Offset was born Kiari Kendrell Cephus in Lawrenceville, Georgia and is part of the hip-hop trio Migos, alongside Takeoff and Quavo. After gaining recognition with Versace in 2013, they released their first studio album, but their real fame came with the release of their single Bad and Boujee in 2017, which went on to be an Internet phenomenon. Offset has also released solo music and collaborated with the likes of Drake, Macklemore, 21 Savage and of course, his soon-to-be wife Cardi B.
According to Dr Sherry A. Ross, an obstetrician-gynaecologist who spoke to Hollywood Life, judging by the appearance of Cardi B’s bump, she looks like she could be 24 weeks or six months pregnant. This means that Cardi B and Offset’s baby could arrive in the summer with a predicted due date to late July 2018.
