Cardi B hid her baby bump in plain sight by making it fashion.
The 28-year-old rapper surprised fans with her baby bump in a crystal cut-out bodysuit at the 2021 BET Awards, and on Tuesday, via the TikTok “Nobody’s Gonna Know” trend, Cardi explained just how she kept her pregnancy under wraps before the big reveal.
“How would they know?” Cardi captioned the video reposted to Instagram, mimicking the TikTok trend based on the TV series Bad Girls Club. In the video, she first reveals a full-body shot of her modeling the crafty look — the Marine Serre Second Skin Moon Skin Fish top and leggings that have a skin-tight, fish scale-like pattern that adds dimension to the set, separated by a neutral-colored waistband — before she takes the phone and turns sideways to show off her baby bump.
Keyshia Cole, Chloe Bailey of Chloe x Halle and more commended Cardi for finessing everyone with her fashionable trick. The 28-year-old rapper first wore the set in a couple of Instagram posts promoting her song “Type Shit” from Migos‘ Billboard 200 No. 2 album Culture III, which is the song the foursome performed together at the BET Awards when she first revealed she and husband Offset are expecting their second child together.
