Cardi B revealed that she “kind of, sort of” considered having an abortion after learning she was pregnant with with fiancé Offset‘s child while appearing on Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club on Tuesday, April 10.

While speaking with host Charlamagne tha God, the “Bodak Yellow” singer — who chuckled while revealing that she knew the night she conceived her child — was asked whether or not she ever considered having an abortion.

“Um, kind of, sort of, and then again, it’s just like, no, I just didn’t want to deal with the whole abortion thing,” the rapper, 25, answered. “I just didn’t want to.”

“The regret of it, probably,” Charlamagne suggested.

“Yeah, I don’t know, I just didn’t want to. And it’s just like, you know what, I’m a grown woman, I’m 25 years old. I’m going to say this in the most humblest way: I’m a schmillionaire, you know what I’m saying?” she laughed. “And … I’m prepared for this.”

As previously reported, the former Love & Hip Hop: New York alum revealed she was pregnant with her first child on the Saturday, April 7, episode of Saturday Night Live during a performance of her new single, “Be Careful.” Cardi B — who tried to keep her pregnancy under wraps despite speculation that she was expecting — was later seen exclaiming, “I’m finally free!” after the reveal.

Cardi B and the Migos rapper, 25, — who have been dating since they went public with their romance in February 2017 and got engaged at a concert in October of the same year — have remained a united front despite various cheating rumors. While appearing on Hot 97’s Ebro in the Morning on Monday, April 9, the “Bartier Cardi” singer hinted that she is expecting a baby girl.
