Cardi B has been keeping mum about persistent pregnancy rumours.
And the latest report from TMZ claims the hip-hop star is set to welcome her first child this summer – but won’t let her pregnancy stop her from taking to the stage at Coachella.
The star – who is alleged to be expecting a baby with rapper Offset – is said to be due the first week of July.
The usually outspoken star hasn’t responded to ongoing pregnancy rumours in recent weeks, despite initially shooting down speculation.
Last month, she was hit with fresh claims that she’s with child, with TMZ reporting that members of the rapper’s team made the revelation during her appearance at a Super Bowl party in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
According to the site, after she performed at Maxim’s bash, a member of her team said that she didn’t want to be in the ‘party atmosphere’ of the VIP room reserved for her entourage as she’s ‘three to four months’ pregnant.
The New York native, who is engaged to Migos rapper Offset, reportedly opted to remain in an area by the stage, where she sipped Fiji water while enjoying the bash.
While the former Love & Hip Hop: New York star’s representatives have repeatedly denied claims that she’s pregnant, Cardi B, real name Belcalis Almanzar, also shot down the rumours herself this month during an Instagram exchange with a fan.
After she shared a video of herself dancing, a follower enquired: ‘Is there maybe a Kylie Jenner secret that we need to know about lol Just asking,’ referring to the 20-year-old reality TV star, who declined to publicly confirm her recent pregnancy.
She responded: ‘No b***h I’m just getting fat. Let me fat in peace.’ [sic]
Cardi B also denied the rumours during a red carpet interview with E! News at January’s Grammy Awards, saying that she faces pregnancy talk ‘every two weeks’.
When she hit the red carpet at the annual music awards ceremony, held in New York City, Cardi showed off her eight-carat diamond ring.
