The couple got married in September and no one knew about it but the “Kodak Yellow” rapper revealed that’s exactly the way she wanted.
On Monday (June 25), Cardi B took to Twitter to confess that the couple had said their vows before she started wearing a giant diamond engagement ring and revealed they were pregnant.
“This why i name my album “Invasion of Privacy” cause people will do the most to be nosey about your life. Welp fvck it,” Cardi B tweeted after a TMZ report surfaced claiming she and her fiancé, secretly wed nine months ago.
The “Invasion of Privacy” singer disclosed that she said “I do” without a dress, a ring, any makeup or guests, save for one cousin.
Despite the fact that the musicians’ marriage has long been official, the two are still planning a wedding reception.
See Cardi B’s full memo:
“There are so many moments that I share with the world and then there are mometns that I want to keep for myself! Getting married was one of those moments! Our relationship was so new breaking up and making up and we had a lot of growing up to do but we was so in love we didn’t want to lose each other, was one morning in September we woke up and decided to get married. We found someone to marry us, and she did, just the two of us and my cousin 😂. I said I do, with no dress no make up and no ring! I appreciate and love my husband so much for still wanting for me have that special moment that every girl dreams of when he got down on his knee and put a ring on my finger and he did that for me!! Well now since you lil nosey f*cks know at least ya can stop saying I had a baby out of wedlock.”
A marriage certificate obtained by TMZ on Monday shows that Cardi B, real name Kiari Kendrell Cephus, and Offset, real name Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar, were married on Sept. 20, 2017 in Atlanta, Georgia.
Therefore, when Offset got down on one knee on stage at the Philly Powerhouse concert on Oct. 27 and proposed to the chart-topping artist, the two had already been married for over a month.
Fans began speculating that the couple may be husband and wife at the BET Awards on Sunday night (June 24). During his brief speech Offset gave Cardi B a shoutout.
“Thank God, I thank my wife, you should thank yours,” he said.
The two hit a rough patch just a few months after Offset’s onstage proposal when allegations surfaced that he had an affair and made a sex tape with another woman in January. But through it all, Cardi B stuck by her man.
Since the scandal, the couple has looked toward the future. Offset got a tattoo of Cardi B’s name on his neck, and the two confirmed their pregnancy, via a live baby bump reveal on SNL, in April.
Their daughter will be Cardi B’s first child, and Offset’s fourth.
