Cardi B Pulled Off the Most Epic Pregnancy Reveal on ‘SNL’
Cardi B is going to be a momma! After months of denying pregnancy rumors, the Grammy nominee announced that she is indeed expecting in the most epic of ways last night, pulling a Beyoncé-style stage reveal while performing her hit “Be Careful” on SNL.
While much of the rapper’s second act was taped close-up, focusing in on her face, the camera eventually panned down around the 2:45 mark to her growing belly, which was visible in a white bodycon dress. Just in case the visual wasn’t confirmation enough, the singer also emulated Bey’s 2011 Grammys reveal by rubbing a hand across her baby bump to a cheering crowd.
Following her performance, the show congratulated its musical guest on the happy news via Twitter.

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
