Cardi B and her supposed fiancé Offset, who are expecting a child together, are actually already husband and wife, according to a marriage certificate obtained by TMZ.
The certificate was filed under their legal names, Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar and Kiari Kendrell Cephus, on Sept. 20, 2017, in Fulton County, Georgia, where they both currently reside.
Cardi B confirmed that they’d secretly wed in a note released Monday on Instagram that talks about “moments that I want to keep for myself!” She explains that the two woke up one morning and decided to tie the knot in private with just her cousin as a witness.

“Well now since you lil nosey fucks know at least ya can stop saying i had a baby out of wedlock,” she ended in the note in typical Cardi fashion.
The Migos rapper seemingly proposed to Cardi B on stage at a Philadelphia concert in October last year with an 8-carat diamond ring, but now we know they’d already been married for weeks at that time.
At the BET Awards on Sunday night, Offset referred to Cardi as “my wife” on stage while accepting the trophy for best group.
