According to people close to Cardi B, she’s knocked up with Offset’s baby. According to Cardi B, she’s just been getting fat. According to me, wearing dresses with giant bows tied directly above her stomach isn’t doing much to dispel those baby rumors. TMZ is firmly on the side that believes Cardi B’s uterus has been making fetus moves, and they believe they’ve got an estimate on the due date.
Sources close to Cardi B say that she’s due in the first week of July, which would put her at about six months pregnant. Cardi B is scheduled to play Coachella next month, and those sources say she’ll be there. If she’s really pregnant, then she’ll be about seven months by then, and the third trimester isn’t exactly an easiest one to hide.
Cardi B doesn’t plan on taking a long break either. Sources say she’s spent the past two weeks in a studio trying to finish her debut album. She’s also joining Bruno Mars on his 24K Magic Tour in September, which would be two months after she’s allegedly due to give birth. TMZ notes she’s getting paid $100,000 a night for the tour.
I doubt Cardi B will reveal the huge news that she’s pregnant during Coachella weekend. First of all, Coachella 2018 is Beyoncé’s big do, and if anyone is going to command headlines that weekend, it’s her majesty. But also, who would even want to reveal their pregnancy at Coachella. To use Beyoncé as an example, she threw her coat open during a performance at the MTV VMAs to an audience of millions. Revealing a pregnancy at Coachella is a whole lot less cute when you realize the audience is 98% sweaty bros in jorts and molly-rolling girls in flower crowns.
