After being suspected of being pregnant for months, Cardi B finally and officially shared the news during her performance on Saturday Night Live this past weekend (April 7). Following up her reveal, which some fans dubbed “iconic,” Cardi’s sister accidentally revealed something of her own.
Twenty-one-year-old Hennessy Carolina posted a sweet, lengthy message to her older sister and her unborn child, inadvertently mentioning the baby’s gender.
A Sweet Message
While Hennessy’s original Instagram post was riddled with slip-ups, the star corrected the caption, taking out any references to the baby’s gender. However, The Shade Room had already screen shot her mistakes.
“A baby is truly a blessing from God,” Hennessy began. “I know how much you always wanted to be a mom!”
After writing how excited she is to become an aunt, Hennessy said, “I’m going to be able to hold baby you and give her all the kisses and hugs.” “I’m passing my daughter crown down,” the star added.
In the corrected version of the post, Hennessy changes the caption to read: “I’m going to be able to hold ur baby and give the baby all the kisses and hugs! your pregnancy is mines we pregnant can’t believe we’re having a baby!”
Not that fans minded the mistake. Tons of supporters filled the comments section with nothing but love and well-wishes.
“Congratulations to you all!! Cardi is going to be an amazing Mom!! I wish her the most easiest pregnancy without one complications!! Can’t wait to see the beautiful addition to the family!! Congratulations again!!” one fan wrote. “You told us the gender of the baby Hennessy before you changed it but so excited,” added another.
The Invasion of Privacy artist wasn’t able to hide the news as well as she would’ve like to. Late March, photos of Cardi’s baby bump hit the internet, revealing the news before she was ready.
According to MTO News, Cardi planned to reveal her pregnancy in Miami. However, before she could do so, someone snapped pictures of her burgeoning belly, splashing the news all over the internet.
In the photos — “taken from BEHIND SOME BUSHES” — viewers can see the rapstress dressed in an elaborate costume, featuring a yellow full-length skirt and bedazzled top. While a stylist maneuvers the material of the skirt, he cups the fabric just right, giving off a nearly perfect view of Cardi’s baby bump.
“No b***h I’m just getting fat”
“No b***h I’m just getting fat,” she said when news of her pregnancy first hit the web earlier this year. “Let me [be] fat in peace.” No one bought her story though. In fact, a few weeks later, a TMZ source insisted that the “Bodak Yellow” rapper is not “fat” but with child.
The insider spilled the New York native’s plans to work right up until the birth of her and Offset’s first child together, slated to be born within the first week of July. She’ll supposedly be seven months pregnant while performing at California’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in April.
On that same note, the star will be two months post-birth when she goes on tour with Bruno Mars. According to the informer, Cardi still plans to join to the “That’s What I Like” singer on his 24K Magic World Tour in September.
The string of performances will pop off in Denver, lasting for several weeks afterwards. So far, tour stops include Colorado, Minnesota, Michigan, Pennsylvania, New York, Tennessee and more. The duo is also projected to stop in Canada for two nights.
