The Grammy-winning rapper Cardi B made a special announcement on Sunday during the BET awards 2021. She revealed her pregnancy during a live performance Sunday night (June 27) alongside husband Offset as well as Quavo and Takeoff of Migos.
She also won video of the year for her Megan Thee Stallion-assisted No. 1 hit WAP. However, it is worth noting that Cardi B’s “WAP” has new meaning at the BET Awards: winning and pregnant.
Cardi B didn’t stay to accept the honor at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, but Megan Thee Stallion rushed to the stage to pick up the award, forgetting to thank Cardi during her speech.
But the Savage rapper made up for it when she won best female hip-hop artist moments later.
“I really forgot to say ‘thank you Cardi’ for even putting me on ‘WAP’ because it makes me feel so good to be acknowledged by one of my peers, who I think so highly of,” Megan Thee Stallion said. “I think so highly of all the women who was nominated in this category.”
This was the second time when Cardi used live television - broadcast from Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles - to confirm her pregnancy. When the couple's first child, Kulture, was on the way, Cardi debuted her baby bump on Saturday Night Live. Born on July 10, 2018, Kulture is now almost three years old.
Cardi was nominated for five awards - best female hip-hop artist, best collaboration ("WAP" with Megan Thee Stallion), viewer's choice award ("WAP" again) and video of the year, twice (for both "WAP" and "Up") - while Migos had a best group nomination at this year's BET Awards.
After her BET Awards performance, Cardi shared another photo of her pregnancy.
