A day after releasing one of the most eagerly awaited rap debut albums in recent years, rapper Cardi B made another splash - revealing she is pregnant.
The fast-rising 25-year-old star showed off an unambiguous baby bump as she appeared on weekly comedy show Saturday Night Live, becoming a top trending item on social media.
In a teasing confirmation to persistent pregnancy rumors, Cardi B took the stage twice on Saturday Night Live, first concealing her body with a fulsome feather boa as she performed her breakout single "Bodak Yellow."
When she returned to rap "Be Careful," a track off her debut album Invasion of Privacy that came out on Friday, Cardi B donned a body-hugging white dress and smiled knowingly as the lights shone on her protruding belly.
Cardi B is engaged to Offset of rap trio Migos, who shortly after his fiancee's television appearance confirmed the pregnancy on Instagram, writing, "We feel so blessed."
Cardi B, a Bronx native whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, has quickly found stardom with her hard-driving rhymes that unsentimentally tell a story of a rough life that once included a stint as a stripper.
She raked in top prizes including single of the year at last year's BET Hip Hop Awards. 
The gossip site TMZ earlier reported that Cardi B is due to give birth in early July.
