When Cardi B revealed that she is pregnant on SNL earlier this month, she had to start responding for her choice to keep the news a secret almost immediately. She’s now spoken about it on her own social media and in several interviews, but it seems like she still feels like the haters out there refuse to get off her back. According to her, many are saying it was a bad idea to get pregnant at the height of her career, or even to have a baby with her fiancé Offset, who has reportedly cheated on her.
"Why do I have to be in my mid-30s to have a baby?,” Cardi asked in one Hot 97 interview. “What am I doing wrong? I’m a grown woman... I’m 25 years old, and I’m going to say this in the most humble way: I’m a millionaire. I’m established.”
Cardi’s younger sister Hennessy Carolina has now joined the ring to defend Cardi and her decision to have a baby.
“Why is anyone saying anything so mean to someone? A baby is a blessing,” she told People. “Why would you talk about it like it’s a bad thing? My sister is such a good person, I wouldn’t want nobody to talk bad about her. It really hurts. But I’m not gonna let them stress me out anymore. I’m tired of it!”
“I know she’s happy. No more people talking about her,” she says. “I know she’s happy and she’s free. She can go out and eat food, not hide what she wants to wear.”
Hennessy also took to her own Instagram soon after Cardi appeared on SNL with a visible baby bump to express her excitement over gaining a nephew or niece.
“A baby is truly a blessing from God,” Hennessy wrote. “I know how much you always wanted to be a mom! You always been like a second mom to me so I know u gonna be the best mommy ever.”
“You took care of me like I was your own daughter, I know how much you LOVE babies,” she continued. “Growing up, you would always break me off a piece of your plate without me asking... to our little brother you give him whatever he imagines.”
We know little about how Cardi and her family are preparing for the baby, which is reportedly arriving in July. Cardi has revealed in a recent interview with Big Boy that Offset has named the baby already, but we don’t yet know what the name is or the sex.
