Cardi B shows off baby bump during ‘Saturday Night Live’ performance

Cardi be pregnant.

The Bronx-born star showed off the baby bump she has been trying so hard to conceal on “Saturday Night Live.”

A slow pan of the camera revealed Cardi’s worst kept secret through a tight-fitting wedding dress after months of her favoring loose-fitting clothes to hide her belly, effectively fueling the pregnancy rumors.

On the eve of her SNL debut, she donned a bulging pink dress at a Miami nightclub performance.

Cardi took to the Studio 8H stage twice Saturday night to perform “Bodak Yellow” and “Be Careful” from her debut album “Invasion of Privacy,” which dropped Friday.

The 25-year-old artist teased viewers early in the episode by crossing her legs, successfully hiding her abdomen, during a cameo in a digital short with SNL castmember Aidy Bryant.


The 25-year-old rapper from the Bronx performed “Bodak Yellow” during the first set.


During her first set, she donned a feathery get-up that covered up much of her body.

Cardi, 25, is believed to be seven months pregnant with her first child with Migos rapper fiancé Offset. She could give birth in the first week of July, according to TMZ.

The pregnancy has made no apparent impact on her music schedule.

She is expected to perform at Coachella later this month and has no reported plans to cancel the gig. Beyoncé pulled out of her headliner set last year after becoming pregnant with twins.

Cardi is expected to tour with her “Finesse” collaborator, Bruno Mars, in September.

TMZ first reported that Cardi disclosed her pregnancy to nightclub staffers in early February, but she flat-out denied the news when asked if she was hiding a “Kylie Jenner secret” on Instagram.

“No, I’m just getting fat. Let me fat in peace,” she told a fan, later flaunting footage of her flat stomach that month.

Jenner kept her pregnancy quiet and only confirmed the news once she had given birth.

Cardi’s rapper fiancé also shut down the rumors when TMZ asked if he was ready to be a father.

“I’m already a father of three, I don’t know what the hell you’re talking about,” he told the gossip site. The 26-year-old “Bad and Boujee” artist has three children from two previous relationships.
