She don’t dance now, she make marriage moves! “Bodak Yellow” rapper Cardi B is officially engaged! The 25-year-old rapper “said yes” in front of a sold-out crowd at Power 99’s Powerhouse concert in Philadelphia on Friday night, after her boyfriend Offset, from the rap group Migos, paused her set to ask her the big question.
In a video of the proposal, shared by CardiTV, the crowd went wild when Offset dropped to one knee as a stunned Cardi B completely freaked out, unable to contain her excitement, when she realized what was happening.
After Cardi somewhat got it together and said “yes,” of course, the Migos rapper stood to his feet and put the 8-carat pear-shaped (or as Cardi calls it, "raindrop shaped") diamond ring on his wife-to-be’s finger.
Cardi B shared a photo of herself holding up the rock on Instagram, moments after her onstage surprise. “Jesus Christ I’m so emotional, @offsetyrn I loveee you so much,” she captioned the photo. ”Thank you for seeing the potential in me since you met me .For giving me advice molding me and loving me .Your such a amazing man to me your family ,friends ,kids and you are extremely talented.I can’t wait to spend FOREVAAAA with you .Lets make a lot shmoney and love together ❤️ ❤️.”
The couple, who began dating earlier this year, have been fending off engagement rumors for months. Back in August, during the 2017 Video Music Awards Pre-Show, Cardi told MTV, “I’m a woman. Every woman, I think, wants to get married and wants to have children. It’s never too early to get married now. You know, if you want to propose to me, you can.” But when she was asked if she’d put pressure on her boyfried to propose, the rapper said, “I don’t gotta put the pressure, you know what I’m saying? I put it down. Ain’t no pressure, baby!”
It’s been a great year for the Bronx rapper, as she recently became the first solo female rapper to top the Billboard charts in 19 years, with her hit single “Bodak Yellow,” which surpassed Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do.”
Congrats to the happy couple!
