Cape Town - She’s one of the hottest rappers in the game, who just recently dropped a much-anticipated album, Invasion Of Privacy, and he’s  a third of the hit-making trio Migos.

But while both are equally successful in their own right, it’s together that Cardi B and Offset stand out as a noteworthy power couple.

Cardi finally confirmed those longstanding pregnancy rumours during her first SNL (Saturday Night Live) appearance, when she performed in a figure-hugging white gown that showed her growing belly.

When pregnancy rumours first started swirling the Bodak Yellow singer told fans in no uncertain terms to please let her be fat in peace

But fast-forward two months and it seems the rapper is finally ready to share the happy news with the world. 

And no one is more relieved than Cardi herself.

As fans across the globe welcomed the news, attention shifted to Cardi’s hot romance with Offset.

We take a look at how the couple met and the whirlwind relationship that followed.

According to Bustle, Cardi (25) and Offset met sometime in 2016 at an “industry event”.  While she’s kept mum on most of their relationship’s details, the 25-year-old did say that it was Offset who pursued her.

"He was very consistent," Cardi said in a video posted to Twitter. "He really wanted to talk to me."

The couple set tongues wagging in December 2016 when they released a song together called Lick, teasing at a budding romance between them.

But it wasn’t until February last year that they made their first public appearance as an item at the Super Bowl, writes. A few days later Cardi made it Instagram official by posting a short video of them with the caption, “Oooh hey babe”.


In October Offset got down on bended knee and popped the 'Big Question' during a sold-out performance for Power 99's Powerhouse in Philadelphia, The Fader reports.

What has seemingly been an eventful relationship took another exciting turn when Cardi opened SNL’s musical act with her new track, Be Careful. The camera initially zoomed in on her face but soon drifted away to show the figure-hugging white gown across her protruding boep.

TMZ reports the rapper is due in July.
