Cardi B is having a baby girl! Today on SiriusXM’s The Howard Stern Show, Cardi B finally confirmed the gender of her little one.
Per People, Stern asked the rapper, “Do you know what you’re having…what are you having?”
“Yes,” Cardi B replied. “I’m having a girl.” Congratulations, Cardi!
The "Bodak Yellow" singer first announced her pregnancy during her Saturday Night Live performance back in April, when the camera panned out to reveal her bump. There had been speculation over the previous months that she and fiancé Offset may have been expecting their first child together, but the couple had denied all rumors up until the SNL shocker.
Then, soon after the reveal, Cardi's sister, Hennessy, took to Instagram to share a sweet congratulatory note to her sister—and spilled the beans on the baby's sex in her message. She's since edited the post, but according to HelloGiggles, The Shade Room caught the original wording, which revealed that Cardi B was expecting a daughter. Hennessy originally wrote, "hold ur baby and give her all the kisses." Hennessy quickly edited the wording to "hold ur baby and give the baby all the kisses," but, as we know now, Hennessy's social media slip proved to be true, thanks to Cardi B's confirmation today.
Despite the accidental gender reveal a whole month before the mama-to-be confirmed the news, Hennessy's message was still a beautiful tribute to her sister: "A baby is truly a blessing from god I know how much you always wanted to be a mom! You always been Like a second mom to me so I know u gonna be the best mommy everrrr. you took care of me like i was ur own daughter I know how much you LOVE babies. Growing up, you would always break me off a piece of your plate without me asking... to our little brother you give him whatever he imagines .... every time I use to see your adorable baby pictures , I use to wish I was older than you just so I wouldve gotten the chance to carry you and give you kisses when you were a baby because you were so cute and adorable! and NOW that ur baby is coming its like it’s coming true! I’m going to be able to hold ur baby and give the baby all the kisses and hugs! your pregnancy is mines we pregnant can’t believe we’re having a baby! hehehehe and to my brother @offsetyrn @iamcardib Auntie hennny aowwwww."
