Cardi B has confirmed she is expecting a baby girl.

The 25-year-old hip hop star is engaged to Migos rapper Offset and the pair are set to become parents for the first time.

Cardi B appeared on the Howard Stern Show on Wednesday and spoke about her pregnancy, marriage and money.

When asked what she is expecting, Cardi B replied: “I am having a girl.”

Cardi B then revealed the couple had picked out a name for their daughter – but Offset chose it.

She said: “I didn’t pick the name so, if you interview my dude, he’ll tell you (what the name is).”

Cardi B and 26-year-old Offset are one of rap’s most high-profile couples, having met at an industry party in New York before becoming engaged in October 2017.

She said the pair have “more than a relationship” and that they are “planning to build a really big future”.

The Bodak Yellow performer also revealed she does not plan to walk down the aisle just yet – because she wants to be able to drink at her wedding.

Cardi B and Offset “clock” each other, she told the radio show, pointing out the expensive purchases the other one makes – such as the diamond chains both often flaunt.

Cardi B, real name Belcalis Almanzar, released the critically acclaimed album Invasion Of Privacy in April.
