Cardi B talks her proposal and how she got her stage name in hilarious interview with Jimmy Fallon

Cardi B and Jimmy Fallon were all laughs as they discussed her big year. The Bodak Yellow rapper appeared on the Tonight Show on Thursday, December 20 to discuss the highlights of her 2017 which included her proposal from rapper Offset. “He always used to tell me I’m going to marry you, and I would be like, ‘that’s the right thing to do,” the 25-year-old said about the surprise proposal that took place in October. “I knew he was going to get me a very expensive gift because he wasn’t there for my birthday. I thought he was going to get me a watch or something, but he just went out [of] his way.”

The MotorSport rapper went on to show the host her massive eight-carat diamond ring. Jimmy couldn’t keep it together as the Bronx native, whose birth name is Belcalis Almanzar, treated him to some of her trademark “zings” while explaining the origin of her stage name. “You know what, my sister's name is Hennessy, so everybody used to call me Bacardi,” she shared. “Then it was my Instagram name, Bacardi, Bacardi B, but for some reason, my Instagram kept getting deleted, and you know what I think it was Bacardi [the alcohol company] that had something to do with it. So I just changed it to Cardi B.”
