Cardi B let it slip that she’s having a girl at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7), and fans of the “Bodak Yellow” rapper are beside themselves with excitement. A source close to Cardi also confirms the news to Billboard.
When asked about her baby kicking, Cardi told ET’s Keltie Knight: “Oh, she wants to fight me!” — strongly hinting at the sex. She couldn’t resist a little quip and reference to her past: “[My dress weighs] about 30 pounds plus baby. It’s okay, though. I used to walk up the project stairs.”
The news follows Cardi’s initial announcement in April that she was expecting a child with the rapper Offset, and another hint of the baby’s sex in a pre-Met Gala interview with The New York Times. In that piece, she said “Shorty weigh three and a half pounds. She do!”
Cardi’s sister Hennessy Carolina also hinted it was a girl in a since-deleted Instagram caption, in which she promised to “hold baby you and give her all the kisses and hugs.”
