Mom-to-be Rapper Cardi B told Howard Stern during an appearance on his radio show this week that she is expecting a baby girl with fiance, rapper Offset of the group Migos.
She also told the shock jock on his Sirus/XM show that she is not interested in being a pregnant bride. When Stern asked her if she had plans to get hitched soon, the “I Like It” singer said, “people that don’t have this job wouldn’t understand…truth of the mater is that’s it’s hard to plan a wedding right now.”
The always candid personality said, “First I am not having a wedding pregnant. I want to wear my dream dress and I want to get drunk on my wedding and I want to go on a honeymoon and I want to be drunk for a whole week.”
But it’s all in the timing. “I know for a fact though next spring we are planning our wedding. but it has to be planned at to a point where there’s no worries.”
So the annual fundraising gala to mark the opening of the new Spring exhibit at The Metropolitan Gallery of Art in New York City went down last night.
As with this event every years, guests are asked to come dressed according to the theme of the new exhibit: Heavenly Bodies: Fashion & The Catholic Imagination. This year’s official hosts were Anna Wintour, Rihanna, Amal Clooney (above in Richard Quinn) and Donatella Versace (who dressed a lot of the attendees this year)
With a theme like that not only do you expect some backlash at what could be expected as a parade of sacrilegiousness, but you sorely expect some interpretations of Angels, the Virgin Mary, the Pope and Cardinals! They all were there last night too.
We just cover the moms and other celeb women we have frequently covered starting with two moms-to-be: Homeland star Claire Danes who is expecting her second child with husband Hugh Dancy and rapper and reality TV star Cardi B who is expecting her first child with her fiance rapper Offset.
Danes wore a custom floor-length empire waist Marni precious duchesse red, magenta and caramel color block gown paired with Marni Monile handbag and multicolour platform sandals.
Cardi looked regal in a custom golden bejeweled white Moschino gown. She was accompanied to the event by designer Jeremy Scott though her fiancé was there with the other two members of his group, Migos.
Yellow was a prevalent theme and color and everyone wearing it last night looked stunning including Lily Aldridge in Ralph Lauren, Huma Abedinand Gabrielle Union in Prabal Gurung dress, Tasaki jewels, Stuart Weitzman shoes and a Tyler Ellis clutch.
Anne Hathaway went with volume in her Valentino gown which she paired did James Banks earrings, a The Code bracelet and Jimmy Choo heels.
Meanwhile, Gisele Bundchen did old Hollywood glam but in an environmentally friendly way by working with Versacd to repurpose an old dress.
“Thank you @versace for working so hard to make me an eco dress. The fabric and lining used are both 100% organic silk ecologically dyed, the threads are 100% organic cotton and everything is certificated as GOTS: Global Organic Textile Standard,” she captioned a photo of herself in the dress before heading out to the ball.
Kylie Jenner made her first official official red carpet appearance in a black velvet Alexander Wang gown with Chopard jewelry with her beau rapper Travis Scott since the two welcomed their first child together, daughter Storming
Uma Thurman was accompanied to the event by Maya Hawke, her daughter with Ex Ethan Hawke and donned a white Gabriela Hearst dress, Giampiero Bodino jewelry, and Manolo Blahnik heels
Most people played it safe but understandingly so because they probably didn’t want to cross the line and have to dodge lightning bolts! ha!
Mom-to-be rapper Cardi B and singer-actress Jennifer Lopez performed onstage this weekend at the 2018 Billboard Latin Music Awards at the Mandalay Bay Events Center on April 26, 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Each year, singers, rappers and other recording artists with roots in Latin music cross over into American and Global industries. These performers are honored annually at this award show which recognizes sales and chart toppers.
Cardi B, outfitted in a salmon-colored ruching bump hugging dress, took the stage with Puerto Rican reggaeton and trap singer Ozuna to perform their 2017 collaboration, “La Modelo.”
She later took to her Instagram page to thank the Latin Billboard Awards for giving her an opportunity to perform. The Bronx native did so in Spanish before being briefly interrupted by her fiance rapper Offset of Migos.
Though Jennifer Lopez wasn’t nominated for any awards, she did use the occasion to debut her new song “El Anillo” during a very elaborate staging. The mom to twins showed off her voluptuous figure in a nude bejeweled body suit.
The hip hop star shared the news yesterday following a performance at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
“You know, shorty keep growing and I be looking like I be moving and everything, but in reality, a b*tch can barely breathe,” Cardi announced in an Instagram video giving fans the news. “I can barely breathe right now. I’ve ate like six chicken wings, and I can barely breathe now.”
Cardi, real name: Belcalis Almanzar, alerted fans of her final performance too.
“Hey guys after Broccoli fest I won’t be doing no more performances .Thank you for understanding ?love yaaa” she captioned the video.
The change of plans comes a few days after Bardi told Jimmy Fallon on his late night talk show during her historic co-hosting gig that she planned to work until the baby arrived.
“I don’t know if it’s the strength of the fetus, but I have never felt so hungry to succeed,” Cardi shared during her co-hosting spot on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon the other week. “I rehearsed for this show,” the rapper continued. “I actually was up today at four in the morning. I was doing a radio run. Tomorrow [is another] radio run; another show, another party. I’m doing it all until I give birth.”
Just yesterday, she shut the show down at the Tinder Presents: Cardi B performance in the Mullins Center at the UMass, a prize to the college for winning the dating app’s “Swipe Off” contest after making the most “swipe rights” compared to other competing schools.
Cardi wore a asymmetrical red and white pinstripe shirt over shorts to the performance.
The Bronx-native rapper first gained social media attention openly discussing her career as a stripper which made her Instagram famous. She eventually landed a casting role on the VH1 TV series Love & Hip Hop: New Yorkbetween 2015 and 2017, but she really started to get some fame after getting an Atlantic Records deal.
Her first single, “Bodak Yellow,” hit the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart – making her only the second female rapper to steal the top spot with a solo track.
Cardi’s debut studio album, “Invasion of Privacy”, was released last week and entered as the number one record on the Billboard 200. It features “Bodak Yellow” as well as other notable singles “I Like It,” and “I Do,” featuring SZA.
After the news, she said she still planned to tour with Bruno Mars through October, and even twerked during her Coachella performance last week.
During a recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres show, she said of the Coachella perfrmance that she wanted to show audiences what she did to get pregnant in the first place.
She had already canceled the Wireless Festival in July and Varietysaid that it’s “safe to assume” her July dates, and even potentially some shows in May, will be cancelled when her due date rolls around.
Rapper Cardi B used her first Saturday Night Live performance ever last night to confirm the rumors that she is pregnant with her first child.
During her second performance on the show hosted by Chadwick Boseman, the camera panned back from the “Bodak Yellow” singer who was in the shadows to reveal her wearing a white bump-hugging wedding gown.
Gossip site TMZ reported back in February that one of Cardi’s staffers told the Super Bowl event organizers that the Love and Hip Hop starwas 3-4 months pregnant
The dad is her long time boyfriend, Offset, one third of the rap group Migos.
Since then, Cardi’s team has been excellent about shielding the star from paparazzi until she decided to make her baby news on her own terms like last night’s performance.
Just last Friday, Cardi, who also is referred to as Bartier, evaded questions about her pregnancy in an interview with US Weekly when she essentially replies that her fans should listen to her album.
That’s right! We respect a celeb who takes control of her own narrative!
Congrats! This will be her first child but Offset’s 4th. He has three children from previous relationships.
