Lyrical lioness Cardi B has everything that a woman could want in life: She is very photogenic; she is famous; she is rich: she has a boyfriend who is the love of her life; she is engaged to be married.

And now Cardi B is, according to the media and insiders, very pregnant.

This is the word that is trickling out of her camp. The tight wall around Cardi B began springing leaks during Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis about why the “Bartier Cardi” singer has packed on the pounds recently.

At that event there were two VIP areas cordoned off from the rest of the fanbase for the game — one at the side that was cordoned off for the players and celebrity talent, and the other was located in the rear of the football dome that was set up specifically for Cardi B and her crew.

A source close to Cardi divulged to TMZ that after the lovable emcee finished performing her hits onstage a venue staffer asked her team if they could escort her back to her VIP room where there was a copious supply of adult beverages. One of Cardi’s reps then said she didn’t want to be in a “party atmosphere” and preferred to stay in the area by the stage and drink Fiji water. The rep then told the staffer Cardi was 3-4 months pregnant.

Cardi B and her folk have vehemently denied that she is expecting her first child with Offset.

In fact, the quick-tongued rapper got rather sassy and saucy on Instagram when she addressed her fans saying that she is not pregnant with this note: “No b***h, I’m just getting fat. Let me fat in peace.”

However, in the heat and flux of the moment, her own people may have let the cat out of the bag without intending to do so.

What do you think? Does Cardi look like a woman who is wonderfully burdened with a fetus?
