On Sunday night, the biggest and brightest stars dressed to the nines for the 2021 BET Awards, which were held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. Returning to its live format following its virtual ceremony last year amid the coronavirus pandemic, celebrities made sure to put on a show.

Prime example: During the highly anticipated event, Cardi B seemingly announced she is pregnant and expecting her second child with her husbandOffset.

While gracing the stage, the 28-year-old star performed with Migos and showed off her growing baby bump during the ceremony. 

For the special occasion, the Bronx native lit up the stage in a custom diamond-studded bodysuit by Dolce & Gabbana that featured peek-a-boo material and an extreme cut-out that was strategically placed in the center of her outfit to highlight her stomach.

Kicking off their show, the rap trio performed "Straightenin," a track off their recently released album, "Culture III." When Cardi entered the stage, she rapped to their song, "Type S---."

Cardi B and Jimmy Fallon challenge each other to mimic sounds inanimate objects make, like the click of a pen or crunch of a chip.

However, minutes before hitting the stage, Cardi took to social media to reveal her baby news. 

"#2," the rapper simply captioned her post, tagging Offset. He later shared on Instagram Stories, "Another blessing."

At this time, Cardi is keeping details of her little one to herself, like how far along she is in her pregnancy and if she knows the sex of her baby.

If her pregnancy announcement sounds familiar, she pulled the same fabulous move when she first revealed she was expecting her first child. Back in 2018, the "Money" rapper dropped jaws when she debuted her bump during her "Saturday Night Live" performance.

Cardi is already the proud mother to her 2-year-old daughter, Kulture Kiari Cephus, who she shares with Offset. The Migos group member is also father to Jordan Cephus, 11, Kalea Marie Cephus, 6, and Kody Cephus, 6.
