Co-Host Cardi B with Host Jimmy Fallon during the opening monologue on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on April 9, 2018.

Cardi B added the line of “talk show host” to her impressive resume Monday night (April 9) by joining Jimmy Fallon in co-hosting The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

The hour-long episode was, as expected, hilarious. Cardi B had the audience roaring with laughter by describing how the “power of the fetus” is what allows her to juggle her crazy schedule or coyly hinting the memories of her raunchy prom night to the show's guest, John Mulaney.

Fallon, who couldn’t stop gushing over the news that the rapper is a mom-to-be, was thrilled to have her chatting with him throughout the night. “She was so fun to work with and funny at rehearsals - had the whole crew laughing. I wish we could’ve had two hours with her,” he said in a statement.

“She really got choked up when we started talking about baby books. Now that everyone knows - it’s starting to feel real to her. Can’t wait to have her back,” he continued. Watch the full episode here.
