Look out, folks! We’ve got a secret wedding on our hands!
Fans of the “Bodak Yellow” rapper were stunned when it was revealed in June 2018 that Cardi B had secretly wed supposed fiancé Offset (of Migos fame) months before their very public 2017 engagement! Though Offset appeared to totally surprise Cardi B with a seemingly unexpected proposal in October 2017, the couple had actually tied the knot a month before — in a bedroom! Nonetheless, Cardi B gave an Oscar-worthy performance when Offset took a knee onstage. Hey, if this whole mega-successful, chart-topping rapper thing doesn’t work out for her, we’re thinking Cardi B should definitely give Hollywood a try! Girl’s got skill.
Thanks to Offset thanking his wife in his BET Awards acceptance speech (instead of his fiancé), fans rushed to speculate on the apparent slip-up. Thankfully, Cardi B put any speculation to rest by confirming the couple’s big news on Twitter. Here’s an inside look at Cardi B’s big (though super low-key) day.
The couple met after a 2016 collaboration
Every great love story gets its start somewhere. For Cardi B and Offset, that romantic beginning came after the pair collaborated on the 2016 Cardi B hit, “Lick,” which featured Offset. But according to Billboard, it’s very possible that the two lovebirds didn’t even meet each other during the recording process! That’s right — it’s totally possible to drop a hit collaboration without even truly knowing your fellow collaborator. Welcome to the 21st century!
The track, which was officially released on January 20, 2017 and was part of Cardi B’s Gangsta Bitch Music Vol. 2 album, might have been the first time Cardi B and Offset collaborated, but we have a feeling it won’t be the last time these two make beautiful music together. In fact, their most recent collaboration (a.k.a. the reason for Cardi B’s adorable baby bump which she premiered during a Saturday Night Live performance) is reportedly due in July 2018!
They got married long BEFORE the proposal
You’ve probably seen the plethora of proposal videos swirling around on all over the internet. From surprise Disney proposals, to romantic beachside proposals, to fully-choreographed flash mob proposals — the internet has seen them all. And everyone knows the best part about a surprise proposal is witnessing the look that washes over the bride-to-be’s face when she realizes that, yes, this is really happening.
Fans of Cardi B and Offset were treated to a live, extra special, surprise proposal on October 29, 2017 when Offset dropped to one knee onstage in front of a cheering crowd at the Philly Powerhouse concert and asked the chart-topper to be his bride. She said yes, and fans across the land rejoiced. However, once the news broke that the hip-hop couple were actually married a month prior to the proposal, many were quick to call shenanigans on the supposed “surprise proposal” — even though Cardi B gave a pretty convincing performance!
Offset let the news slip at the BET Awards
At some point or another, we’ve all let the proverbial cat out of the bag. And at the 2018 BET Awards, Offset proved that celebrities are far from exempt to letting a secret slip. Stars — they’re just like us!
At the 2018 BET Awards, which were held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California on June 24, 2018, Migos took to the stage to accept the award for best group. Offset briefly addressed the audience during the group’s acceptance speech, saying, “I thank God, I thank my wife — you should thank yours, too.” And fans were like, “Whaaaaa?”
It seems that Offset is simply too smitten with his bride to keep their secret to himself. But if this Rolling Stone interview (published on June 20, 2018), the BET Awards incident wasn’t the first time the rapper had hinted at Cardi B being his wife. “Guys, fellas! You’ll lose your wife trying to stop them from being the best they can,” Offset said in the Rolling Stone profile, titled “Cardi B and Offset: A Hip-Hop Love Story.”
The wedding was SUPER low-key
It seems that low-key, ultra-simplistic weddings are all the rage these days. There are about a million Pinterest boards filled with copious amounts of simple and sweet wedding inspiration ideas — from untraditional, toned-down wedding dresses, to minimal guest lists, to super-intimate locations. You definitely don’t have to spend a fortune or stress yourself out to marry the love of your life — and if any two people know this to be true, it’s Cardi B and Offset. After all, these lovebirds wed in a bedroom.
No need to adjust your monitor — you read that correctly. Cardi B revealed in a tweet that she married Offset in an intimate bedroom ceremony. According to TMZ, a source close to Offset and Cardi B reportedly revealed that the Migos star “woke up one September morning, looked at the ‘Bodak Yellow’ rapper in the eye and straight-up said, ‘Marry me.'” She said yes (obviously), and the pair hired an officiant to wed them right there in the bedroom, with Cardi B’s cousin as their witness. Who says romance is dead?
