“We found someone to marry us, and she did, just the two of us and my cousin. 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!!” the mom-to-be added. “Well now since you lil [nosy] f--ks know at least ya can stop saying i had a baby out of wedlock.”
TMZ first reported the news after obtaining a copy of the pair’s marriage certificate, which was filed on September 20, 2017 in Atlanta, Georgia, showing that Kiari Kendrell Cephus and Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar (Offset and Cardi B) are already married. The revelation followed Offset calling Cardi his wife at the 2018 BET Awards. After Migos won Best Group at the awards show on Sunday, June 24, he said, "I thank my wife. You should thank yours."

Back in October, Offset, 26, publicly proposed to Cardi with an eight-carat diamond ring at the Power 99’s Powerhouse concert in Philadelphia, where they both performed — little did the audience and fans know that the rappers had already made their marriage official. The couple's romance began with a first date at the 2017 Super Bowl. Earlier this year, the 25-year-old confirmed that she is pregnant with her first child.
Cardi and Offset recently opened up to Rolling Stone about their relationship. "We really love each other. She's real. I wanted real. I also wanted successful,” the Migos member said. "My mama was the man of my household," he added. "Guys, fellas! You'll lose your wife trying to stop them from being the best they can."
