The notoriously open rapper Cardi B is clearly terrible at keeping secrets. During a lengthy NY Times profile of her first Met Gala, Cardi accidentally dropped the gender of her unborn child.

Per NY Times:
“Extremely heavy,” is how Cardi characterized her outfit. “The beading is just crazy, and then,” she said, cradling her midsection, “shorty weighs three and a half pounds.”
This news was met with laughs of delight from those assembled. “She do,” said Cardi. “She do weigh three and a half pounds. That’s pretty good for seven months, right?” she asked, looking around. “Because I was born five pounds.”
Dolly Faibyshev, the author of the article, got this info before the Met Gala had even started, interviewing the Invasion of Privacy artist as she dressed for the annual event. While the mommy-to-be was on the red carpet outside of New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, she slipped again.
During a chat with ET‘s Keltie Knight, Cardi shared her excitement about her pregnancy. After being asked about her baby’s kicking, the 25-year-old responded, “Oh, she wants to fight me!”
“[My dress weighs] about 30 pounds plus baby. It’s okay, though. I used to walk up the project stairs,” she added.
