TMZ is reporting that world’s most famous procurer of bloody shoes, Cardi B, is pregnant—approximately six months along, in fact.

The news will likely come as no surprise to fans who have noticed her increasingly covered-up looks in the last month or so. The rumor mill started churning during Super Bowl weekend last month and officially went into overdrive when Cardi accepted her iHeartRadio Music Award in an empire waist Christian Siriano dress. With enough layers of skirt to make her look like an upside-down cotton candy cone, fans wondered—could Cardi be hiding something?


TMZ reports that her baby is due the first week of July, but that won’t stop Cardi from making money moves. She’s still planning on performing at Coachella next month, and she announced during her iHeartRadio speech Sunday that her first studio album will be dropping in April.

Sources tell TMZ that Cardi is still planning to tour with Bruno Mars come September—no more than two months after she brings a mini Cardi into the world.

As Belcalis herself would say, oowwwwwww.
