QUICK QUOTES: Cardi B On Why She Kept Her Pregnancy A Secret
Rapper Cardi B reveals why she tried to keep her pregnancy a secret. Get the scoop.
Cardi B‘s pregnancy eventually became the worst kept secret ever, but there was a reason why the “Bartier Cardi” rapper kept her exciting news under wraps.
Shortly after revealing her baby bump during her performance on “Saturday Night Live,” Cardi took to social media and said she didn’t want to reveal her pregnancy to avoid dealing with the scrutiny from “thirsty” people.
She’s referring to the folks who think she sabotaged herself by getting pregnant just as her rap career is taking off.
In spite of her critics, many celebs voiced their support of Cardi and encouraged her.

@iamcardib will be more than fine! Women can have kids and still keep reaching their goals! I’m an OG mama Straight Otta Compton with 3 kids and I took them all to auditions with me! I would set up the corner of the casting office to look like a pre school! I played zero games! Tag an amazing mom who is about her business and making her dreams come true❤️ #CardiYouGotThis ?
I’m a mother of two. I worked and toured literally up and until my due date with one. Then after giving birth, just 2 and a half weeks later I went back in the studio to finish recording my album “Did It For Love” which produced a #1 single “Don’t Want You Back”. The grind has never stopped, no beat has been missed by me becoming a mother. In fact, being a mother is my greatest joy and I wouldn’t trade it for the world! I love what I do, but I also loooooove being a mother. Having a child or children doesn’t mean you can’t have a career in the music industry! So congrats to @iamcardib on her pregnancy! Motherhood is beautiful thing, stand proud in it! I salute and celebrate all the working mothers out there making it happen in their careers and still raising their families. God is good! #ilovebeingamommy #iameverywoman #motherhood
I just woke up at 2:45am and saw this video; I’m crying real tears- happy tears. For so many years they made us (women) feel like we had to pretend to be single, pretend to not have a real life, and put our lives on hold to “entertain” the masses. Meanwhile, you feel trapped in your own body, a prisoner to your career, and so unhappy when you supposed to be having the time of your life. @IAmCardiB I am so happy you are free too?#QueenSh*t #CongratulationsOnEVERYTHING
Congrats to Cardi B.
I’m sure she’ll be fine.
