Cardi B Announces Second Pregnancy During BET Awards Performance
In a night energetic performances and big wins, the biggest reveal was when Cardi B announced that she is pregnant with her second child at the 2021 BET Awards ceremony.
The rapper revealed the news while performing with her husband Offset and his group Migos. After the trio finished “Straightenin,” Cardi joined the group for “Type S–.”

“Cardi B and Offset, giving us life – literally,” host Taraji P. Henson joked when the show returned from commercial following the news break.
“#2! ♥️” Cardi B, 28, captioned an Instagram photo announcing the happy news that went live simultaneously with the performance.
