Cardi B reveals she’s pregnant with second child during BET Awards performance

Cardi B whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, has revealed she is expecting her second child with husband Offset during a performance at the BET Awards.

The chart-topping rapper took to the stage with Offset’s rap group Migos while wearing a bedazzled bodysuit with a sheer panel in the abdomen exposing the star’s growing baby bump.

The annual ceremony – which celebrates the achievements of black performers across entertainment and sport – returned for an in-person event in Los Angeles following last year’s virtual affair.

Cardi and Offset are already parents to daughter Kulture Kiari, who turns 3 in July.

Offset, 29, is also dad to daughter Kalea, 6, and sons Kody, 6, and Jordan, 11, from previous relationships.

As well as her pregnancy announcement, Cardi B won the BET Award for video of the year for WAP, her viral collaboration with Megan Thee Stallion.

This is not the first time the New Yorker has revealed a pregnancy on TV.

Following the performance, Cardi B shared a topless portrait on social media, showing her chest and bump painted white.

She captioned the post “#2!” and added a love heart emoji.

Many stars commented on the 28-year-old’s post.
