Cardi B Is Reportedly Pregnant, Expected to Perform at Coachella
Cardi B has been trying to shut down pregnancy rumors for several weeks now, but they keep coming back like a pesky mosquito on a summer day. According to TMZ, the rap sensation is pregnant with Offset’s baby.
The website reports that Cardi B allegedly was told by her doctor that she due date will be in the first week of July. That means she would be seven months pregnant when she hits the stage at the 2018 Coachella Music and Arts Festival at Indio, Calif., on April 15 and 22.
If TMZ’s story is true, first, congratulations to her and Offset. As for whether Cardi is capable of performing at that stage of pregnancy is not entirely impossible. In fact, M.I.A. performed at Coachella in 2009 while visibly pregnant so it shouldn't be an issue for her.
Cardi B has remain quiet on the pregnancy rumors. A couple of months back, the “Bodak Yellow” rapper denied that she was preggers and explained her weight gain with “just getting fat.”
However, Cardi has expectant delivery coming soon. The 25-year-old artist is set to drop her debut album in April. She made the announcement while accepting the Best New Artist trophy at the iHeartRadio Awards.
In the meantime, Cardi recently celebrated “Bodak Yellow” going five times platinum. She posted a photo of her accomplishment on Instagram with the caption, "I ain’t know it went 5X platinum ...This record will always be my wittle baby."
Reps for Cardi B had no comment on the matter.
