Rapper Cardi B’s love life has been dramatic for quite some time now. Her relationship with Offset has already led to the birth of their daughter, Kulture, and the two are reportedly quite committed parents. Although she already has one daughter, rumors have continued to dog Cardi about the possibility that she’s pregnant with a second child.
Is Cardi B pregnant again? She revealed something big at a recent awards show.
Cardi's performance at the 2021 Grammys sparked a lot of conversation, with many wondering if she was pregnant with baby number two already. Leading up to the performance, the rapper tweeted, "I feel kinda sick," and the rumor mill began circulating.
These speculations only continued to grow when fans watched her performance, which many said was less energetic than a typical performance by Cardi. Some also pointed out that she looked a bit bloated, though that's not a reliable (or polite) indicator.
"I hope you guys enjoyed The 'UP/WAP' performance," she tweeted after the Grammys. "Boyyy was I tired but I didn't want to make my fans wait so long for a performance. Love you guys."
While Cardi hadn't directly addressed the pregnancy rumors at the time, in a tweet leading up to her performance she said, "Soon you will see why my body feels destroyed."
Back in 2019, Cardi addressed the persistent rumors that she was pregnant in a tweet. “BARDIGANG is harassing me cause I’m gaining weight again. ... I might have to pull a tampon out my p---y so ya can stop. ... Like, damn, my baby ain’t even crawling yet can ya stop with the assumptions," she said.
But now, Cardi is pregnant again! Cardi confirmed her second pregnancy during her recent BET Awards performance.
On June 27, 2021, Cardi joined the Migos on stage during the BET Awards to perform their hit song, "Type S--t." When Cardi appeared on stage, the immediate show-stopper was her embroidered Dolce & Gabbana bodysuit which featured a sheer midsection that prominently showcased her baby bump.
Cardi later confirmed the news that she is expecting a second child in an Instagram shoot, where she posed sideways fully nude with her midsection covered in what appears to be white paint. The star only captioned the photo with "#2," and tagged Offset, her husband.
Cardi B has offered plenty of details on what it’s like to be a mother.
Throughout her time as a mother, Cardi has been incredibly frank about what life as a new mom can feel like. In a series of tweets and Instagram videos, the rapper has been brutally honest about every aspect of being a new mom. In discussing her recovery, Cardi said that it took longer than expected for her to heal.
“I didn’t [think] it would take my body so long to heal, like, I thought six weeks was gonna be good enough. No, bro, my a-- is broken, this baby broke my a--,“ Cardi said, as reported by Vogue.
“Doing a tour with Bruno Mars in, like, the biggest arenas and I didn’t want to go on tour and not be able to dance or perform properly, not be able to get choreography right, because my body is extremely weak right now. Like, so weak. That postpartum s--t is really real, y’all.”
Although she admitted that recovering was difficult, Cardi has also acknowledged that motherhood can be a motivating force. ”All the time I’m thinking about my kid,“ she said. “I’m shaking my a--, but at the same time I’m doing business, I’m on the phone with my business manager saying, make sure that a percentage of my check goes to my kid’s trust. I give my daughter so much love, and I’m setting her up for a future.“
Cardi B has made it very clear in the past that she didn't want to stop at just one kid.
While the rapper has been super clear about her love for Kulture, Cardi has also made it clear that she is open to having more children. “Whatever my body can take, and I feel like I can take it,” she said in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. ”It’s so easy for people to be like, ‘Oh, I want four or five kids.’ But it’s like, ‘Can you really take that?'”
It's clear now with this most recent reveal that Cardi is very much for having more kids with Offset, and despite not confirming a due date, from the looks of her baby bump it can't be too far off.
Congratulations to Offset and Cardi, and we'll be sure to update with more information on her new pregnancy as it becomes available.
