The rapper surprised fans with the news she and husband Offset are expecting baby No. 2 together during the Migos’ performance at the 2021 BET Awards Sunday night (June 27).
The announcement, broadcast from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, is the second time Cardi has used live television to confirm she’s pregnant. When the couple’s first child, Kulture, was on the way, Cardi debuted her baby bump on Saturday Night Live. Born on July 10, 2018, Kulture is now almost three years old.
Cardi was nominated for five awards — best female hip-hop artist, best collaboration (“WAP” with Megan Thee Stallion), viewer’s choice award (“WAP” again) and video of the year, twice (for both “WAP” and “Up”) — while Migos had a best group nomination at this year’s BET Awards.
After her BET Awards performance, Cardi shared another photo of her pregnancy.
“Cardi B and Offset, giving us life – literally,” host Taraji P. Henson joked when the show returned from commercial following the news break.
