Cardi B revealed that she is pregnant during her perfornance on tonight’s BET Awards. Migos did a medley of songs from their newest album Culture III. Quavo, Takeoff, and Offset (Cardi’s husband) were performing their single “Type Shit” when Cardi joined them to perform her blistering verse. Clad in a skintight bodysuit with a visible bump, Cardi blazed through her bars onstage.
“Once hoes start doing bad, they need somethin’ they can blame it on/Bitches couldn’t be as hot as me in the summertime with a blanket on,” Cardi spat. “All these verses I done slayed, all these looks that I done gave/Could have let these f–k hoes drown, but I let them ride my wave.”
And the wave doesn’t stop. Tonight, Cardi won Best Collaboration for “WAP”, her controversial combo with fellow rapper Megan thee Stallion. The song’s video also won Video of the Year. Cardi B didn’t stay to accept the honor at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, but Megan Thee Stallion rushed to the stage to pick up the award, according to the Associated Press.
Later in the telecast, awards host Taraji P. Henson referenced the moment, saying, “Let’s go back to Cardi B and Offset giving us life — literally!”
This will be Cardi’s second child. Kulture, her daughter with Offset, will be 3 next month. This will be Offset’s fifth child. Cardi filed for divorce last fall but reconciled with Offset in November 2020 and seem to be very much together. A press release released after Cardi and Migos’s BET Awards performance stated that Cardi was happy to “share this wonderful news with her husband by her side.”
