And when asked to address the seemingly negative impact a pregnancy might have on her career, Cardi (whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar) had this to say: "You know what—I'm a grown woman.

Cardi B and Offset's took their romance public in early 2017. In October of that year, Offset popped the question in front of a sold-out crowd with an 8-carat diamond ring. Just recently in late June, the star confirmed that she had already married Offset in September 2017.
Congratulations, you two!
