Pregnant rapper Cardi B had to cut short her new Rolling Stone magazine cover shoot after fainting on set.
The Bodak Yellow hitmaker bares her bump in a racy photo alongside her fiance, Migos star Offset, while they also posed for a series of other snaps, including a cheeky picture of the couple in bed, with Cardi’s left hand on her man’s crotch.
The 25-year-old mother-to-be showed off the July issue of Rolling Stone on Instagram last weekend (16-17Jun18) after it apparently leaked online, revealing the shoot was “so special”.
“Thank you to everyone who helped put this amazing cover together!,” she captioned the post. “Even tho it was leaked and suppose to be In gray f**k it My daughter made it to the Rollin Stone cover (sic) !!!!”
However, Cardi has since revealed the photo session wasn’t all fun and games.
“It was really hard to be creative with this shoot since the theme was Rock n Roll vintage while I’m pregnant,” she explained on Instagram on Wednesday (20Jun18), as she shared behind-the-scenes video footage.
“Rock n Roll is wild and we couldn’t get too wild but the shoot came out POPPINGTON (banging)!,” she continued. “Thanks @rollingstone …..”
She then shared details of her minor health scare, admitting she is unable to stay on her feet for long without feeling dizzy as she nears her due date.
“Terrible fact: on the last look we did we couldn’t take a lot of pics and we had to wrap up the shoot cause i got so lightheaded and passed out on Offset arms (sic),” she wrote. “My baby don’t like when i stand up straight for more then 20 seconds ,i automatically get lightheaded .Ladies did that ever happened to you while pregnant ? it’s the weirdest thing (sic).”
Cardi is thought to be due in July (18). The child, a little girl, will be her first, while Offset already has three young kids from three former relationships.
