After weeks of rumors, Cardi B. finally confirmed that she is pregnant during her recent performance on Saturday Night Live, and now – just a couple of days later – a family member may have accidentally revealed the gender of her baby. Did the rapper’s sister tell fans on Instagram that she is having a girl?
25-year-old Hennessy Carolina was so excited about her sister’s pregnancy that she took to Instagram earlier this week to send a message of congratulations, but it is what she said in the now-edited caption that has fans talking.
She started the long post by writing that a baby is a blessing from God and she knows how much her sister has always wanted to be a mom. Carolina then wrote that Cardi B. has always been like a second mom to her and she knows that her sister will be the best mom ever.
Then, in the last sentence, Carolina said, “I’m going to be able to hold ur baby and give her all the kisses and hugs.”
It didn’t take long for Carolina to change the “her” to “the baby,” but fans had already taken notice of the accidental gender reveal. However, Cardi B. has yet to officially announce if she is having a boy or a girl.
The Finesse rapper revealed her pregnancy at the end of the latest episode of Saturday Night Live when she showed off her baby bump in a tight, form-fitting white dress from designer Christian Siriano and exclaimed, “I’m finally free!”
Cardi B.’s fiancé, Offset, proposed to her last October during a concert in Philadelphia with an 8-carat diamond ring, and this will be the couple’s first baby.
Even though the Bodak Yellow rapper seemed thrilled to finally show off her growing belly, she had been denying the pregnancy rumors for the past few weeks. In a now-deleted Instagram Stories post, Cardi B. explained why she waited so long to make the announcement.
“This is why i did not wanted to say nothing,” Cardi wrote. “People be so thirsty to scrutinize and try to destroy something that it suppose to be a blessing.”
So, instead of being “fat in peace,” she now wants to be pregnant in peace. Cardi B. is approximately seven months pregnant and due in early July.
