Following the performance, Cardi B shared a topless portrait on social media, showing her chest and bump painted white.
She captioned the post “#2!” and added a love heart emoji.
As well as her pregnancy announcement, Cardi B won the BET Award for video of the year for WAP, her viral collaboration with Megan Thee Stallion.
This is not the first time New York-born Cardi B, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, has revealed a pregnancy on TV.
In April 2018 she announced the news during a performance on Saturday Night Live.
WAP rapper Cardi B and Offset, 29, tied the knot in 2017 but their romance has not always run smoothly.
Their relationship was rocked by reports of his cheating and Offset took to the stage at Cardi B’s Rolling Loud concert in 2018 to ask for forgiveness.
Cardi B filed for divorce in September 2020 but they later reconciled.
The BET Awards, which celebrate the achievements of black performers across entertainment and sport, took place at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles.
