On Sunday, June 27, the biggest and brightest stars showed up and showed out for the 2021 BET Awards at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. Returning to its live format following its virtual ceremony last year amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, celebrities made sure to put on a show.
While gracing the stage, the 28-year-old star performed with Migos and showed off her growing baby bump during the 2021 BET Awards.
For the special occasion, the Bronx native lit up the stage in a custom diamond-studded bodysuit by Dolce & Gabbana that featured peek-a-boo material and an extreme cut-out that was strategically placed in the center of her outfit to highlight her stomach.
Kicking off their show, the rap trio performed "Straightenin," a track off their recently released album, Culture III. When Cardi entered the stage, she rapped to their song, "Type S--t."
However, minutes before hitting the stage, Cardi took to social media to reveal her baby news.
"#2," the rapper simply captioned her post, tagging Offset. He later shared on Instagram Stories, "Another blessing."
At this time, Cardi is keeping details of her little one to herself, like how far along she is in her pregnancy and if she knows the sex of her baby.
If her pregnancy announcement sounds familiar, it's because she pulled the same fabulous move when she was expecting her first child.
Back in 2018, the "Money" rapper dropped jaws when she debuted her bump during her Saturday Night Live performance. For her second performance that night, the "I Like It" rapper looked effortlessly elegant wearing a white body-hugging gown.
Not only did the star's followers gush over her baby news but Offset also celebrated the special announcement on social media. "Thank you for all of your support," he wrote following Cardi's SNL performance. "We feel so blessed."
As fans know, Cardi is already the proud mother to her 2-year-old daughter, Kulture Kiari Cephus, who she shares with the 29-year-old rapper. The Migos group member is also a father to Jordan Cephus, 11, Kalea Marie Cephus, 6, and Kody Cephus, 6.
Just last weekend, the "WAP" rapper shared a sweet message about Offset to mark Father's Day.
"Happy Father's Day daddy shark @offsetyrn," she shared on Sunday, June 20. "You're such a amazing father and you really bussing your ass for your kids now and future. I hope you enjoy your day today."
