Cardi B is pregnant. We’ve known that for months, but she only confirmed on Saturday Night Live last weekend. She’s pretty far along – some people claim she’s already 6 or 7 months pregnant. Which should make her Coachella set pretty exciting, just as her promotional tour her album will probably have to hit pause for her maternity leave too. It’s been a while since a young – mid-20s – celebrity got pregnant at an inopportune moment for her career. Variety had a breakdown of all of Cardi’s scheduled appearances throughout the summer and into the fall, many of which I think it’s safe to assume she’ll probably end of canceling. Especially if she’s already seven months along. So… is it fair or unfair to ask Cardi B if she thought about terminating her pregnancy when she first found out?

On Power 105.1’s “The Breakfast Club” on Tuesday, Charlamagne tha God asked Cardi whether she ever thought about “not having the baby,” since she conceived at the height of her fame and just before her album’s release.

“Kinda, sorta,” Cardi said. “I just didn’t want to deal with the whole abortion thing. I just didn’t want to … I’m a grown woman, I’m 25 years old, I’m gonna say this in the most humblest way: I’m a schmillionaire,” Cardi said. “I’m prepared for this.”

She added that her pregnancy wasn’t planned, and that finally confirming the persistent pregnancy rumors this weekend was a “relief.” Cardi was concerned with balancing her work and home life, but was peeved at the idea that she can’t be both a mother and a No. 1 MC.

“It just really bothers me and it disgusts me,” she said, “because I see a lot of women online like, ‘Oh, I feel sorry for you, your career is over,’ and it’s like, ‘Why can’t I have both? Why do I have to choose a career or a baby?’”

She also said, “I don’t
