After appearing as the musical guest on Saturday Night Live, rapper Cardi B went backstage and proclaimed, "I'm finally free!" She was speaking, of course, of the very noticeable pregnancy she'd been hiding for months.
One can certainly understand why Cardi B wanted to keep the pregnancy to herself. In the age of social media everything receives negative feedback. In a now deleted Instagram post she put it as:
This is why I did not [want] to say nothing. People be so thirsty to scrutinize and try to destroy something that [is supposed] to be a blessing.
We couldn't agree more. Luckily her fans were there to offer much needed support.

Cardi B seems focused on her own life goals including a future with the baby.

@iamcardib I love that! Shit, a lot of us Momma’s worked hard to be where were pre baby, I know I did. Then once my daughter was born, it’s became showing her how to get our stuff handled, and taking care of us! She doesn’t love those talks as much as I do 😂 #cardib— Michelle Gordon (@qunadrock) April 8, 2018
