Atlanta, GA – After the news broke that Cardi B and Offset were secretly married last year, the “Bodak Yellow” rapper confirmed she is now Mrs. Kiari Kendrell Cephus.
On Monday (June 25), the Bronx native shared a Twitter post explaining her decision to keep it quiet.

TMZ reports the couple married on September 20, 2017 after they hired an officiant to come to their house and perform an impromptu ceremony in their bedroom.
“We found someone to marry us, and she did, just the two of us and my cousin,” she explains in the post. “I said I do, with no dress no make up and no ring! I appreciate and love my husband so much for still wanting for me [to] have that special moment that every girl dreams of when he got down on his knee and put a ring on my finger and he did that for me!!”
“Well now since you lil nosey fucks know at least ya can stop saying I had a baby out of wedlock.”
In the caption, Cardi explained why she named her album, Invasion OF Privacy. “This why i name my album ‘Invasion of privacy’ cause people will do the most to be nosey about your life,” she said. “Welp fuck it.”
They are currently expecting their first child.

Offset thanked his “wife” at the 2018 BET Awards on Sunday night (June 24) and it turns out there’s a good reason for that. According to TMZ, the Migos rapper and Cardi B are already married.

A marriage certificate obtained by TMZ indicates the couple got married on September 20, 2017 in Fulton County, Georgia. Both of their legal names — Kiari Kendrell Cephus and Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar — are written on the certificate and it’s signed by Judge Pinkie T. Toomer.
The paperwork was officially filed on June 25.
Offset proposed to the “Bodak Yellow” rapper last October, but evidently it was all for show.
Although Cardi won the award for Best Female Hip Hop Artist at the 2018 BET Awards on Sunday night, she is pregnant with their first child and was unable to attend.
