Cardi B made quite the debut on this weekend's episode of Saturday Night Live.
The rapper, whose album Invasion of Privacy arrived on Friday (April 6), took the stage the following night (April 7) on the NBC sketch comedy series, where she first performed a mashup of her Grammy-nominated breakout hit "Bodak Yellow" and her single "Bartier Cardi."
While she was sporting a feathery ensemble for the first performance, she returned later in the night wearing a lush white gown to perform an intimate rendition of her newest single "Be Careful." The camera was trained close up for the first half of the song, panning out about halfway through the track allowing Cardi to reveal her baby bump.
Her pregnancy had been rumored for months, but it seemed she wanted to make the announcement on her own terms.
Also during the Chadwick Boseman-hosted episode, Cardi appeared in a video short in which SNL player Aidy Bryant takes inspiration from the Bronx rapper and changes her name to Aidy B while rapping feisty responses to her stunned cast mates.
