Cardi B wasn't just carrying her baby bump at Monday night’s Met Gala.

The pregnant “Bodak Yellow” rapper, 25, walked the stairs at the 2018 Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual gala, fully embracing the theme of Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination with designer Jeremy Scott.

“It weighs a ton of pounds,” Scott told ET’s Keltie Knight on the carpet about his creation that Cardi was wearing. “It weighs probably 45 to 50 pounds.”

“About 35 pounds plus baby,” Cardi added, noting, “It's OK though, you know, I used to go up the project stairs.”

“I have the new Virgin Mary queen with me tonight, Cardi B, so I wanted something with divine, of divinity for her, so I thought about the Vatican and all these amazing encrusted iconography of religious icons, like Mary, Virgin Mary," Scott said.

Cardi joked that she’s “clearly not” feeling virginal, pointing to her growing baby bump, but had no problem embracing the evening’s theme.

“I told Jeremy I want something very Catholic. I want something that you see in a Catholic Church. I'm Catholic, and I really wanted my religion to be embraced in my outfit,” the rapper told ET. 

She added that her growing baby girl “wants to fight me!” thanks to all of the belly kicks she received this evening.
