Cardi B isn’t ready to reveal everything just yet.
During an interview with Ebro Darden for an interview on Beats 1 on Apple Music on Thursday, the 25-year-old rapper was asked about the rumors that she’s expecting her first child with fiance Offset -- but she didn’t give much of an answer.
Cardi, who didn’t show signs of a baby bump in a pajama-inspired dress, instead implied that a possible pregnancy reveal (or denial) would take place on her upcoming album, Invasion of Privacy, which drops on Friday.
“Well, you know, I just feel like people have to tune in a little bit on my album, and they will know a little bit more,” she teased. “Because it’s like, I can’t address all the rumors and everything.”
“I have been so open to people about myself. People cannot expect me to open [up] about everything. Certain things to me, it has to be private,” she continued. “You cannot invade my privacy. I’m not a damn animal at the zoo that you just can see everything. No.”
Cardi and Offset both denied pregnancy rumors after they first circulated in early February, but according to reports, she’s currently expecting -- and planning to perform at Coachella this month and tour with Bruno Mars later this year.

The couple was also plagued by rumors of infidelity earlier this year, but Cardi made it clear that the two were going to stick it out.
"It's like everybody is coming down my neck like, 'Why are you not leaving him? You have low self-esteem,'" Cardi told Cosmopolitanin February. "I don't have low self-esteem… I know I look good. I know I'm rich, I know I'm talented. I know I could get any man I want -- any basketball player, football player. But I want to work out my s**t with my man, and I don't got to explain why."
"I'm not your property. This is my life," she continues. "I'm going to take my time, and I'm going to decide on my decision… It's not right, what he f**king did, but people don't know what I did, 'cause I ain't no angel."
