Cardi first revealed the pregnancy news while performing with Offset and Migos at the BET Awards in June.
After the trio finished “Straightenin,” Cardi joined the group for “Type S—.” Appearing onstage in an embroidered Dolce & Gabbana bodysuit, a sheer panel in the abdomen exposed Cardi’s burgeoning belly.
During a July appearance on the live radio app Stationhead, Cardi shared how she told husband Offset about her pregnancy plus the Migos rapper’s reaction.
The “Up” artist said she started to show pregnancy symptoms two weeks before the Grammys during rehearsals for her performance with Megan Thee Stallion. Cardi said she noticed her “mouth started to get watery” and she was experiencing headaches and carsickness.
“I think I’m pregnant, bro!” she told Offset shortly thereafter.
After confirming baby No. 2 with a pregnancy test, Cardi said she and her husband started to laugh.
“We just started laughing like, ‘Lord, we have so much to do,’ ” she recalled.
The star also expressed her excitement for her baby on the way, saying, “There is something so dear about this pregnancy and I feel like I’m starting a new chapter, and I’m happy about that.”
