Cardi B took her fans by surprise when she announced her pregnancy last month.
So just how did one of the biggest stars on the planet keep such a big secret? The “Money” rapper posted a TikTok video that showed how she cleverly hid her baby bump by wearing patterned clothing and striking certain poses.
In the clip, Cardi B can be seen wearing a blue patterned crop top with matching leggings while stretched out against a white wall. The angle and outfit make it appear as though she is not pregnant.
Cardi B then poses in front of a mirror in the exact same outfit before turning to the side to reveal her pregnant stomach. The clip is accompanied by a voiceover that says “Nobody’s going to know,” while Cardi captioned it, “How would they know?”
Her 99 million Instagram followers admitted that they were fooled by the optical illusion.
Cardi announced that she and Offset were expecting their second child during her performance with Migos at last month’s BET Awards. She also shared a series of photos from her maternity shoot including one where her husband wraps his arms around her naked.
