Cardi B is recalling the moment she realized she was pregnant with her second child.

On Tuesday, the rapper, 28, made a surprise appearance on the live radio app Stationhead, where she shared how she told husband Offset about her pregnancy plus the Migos rapper's reaction.

The "Up" artist said she started to show pregnancy symptoms two weeks before the Grammys during rehearsals for her performance with Megan Thee Stallion. Cardi said she noticed her "mouth started to get watery" and she was experiencing headaches and carsickness.

"I think I'm pregnant, bro!" she told Offset shortly thereafter.

After confirming baby No. 2 with a pregnancy test, Cardi, who shares 3-year-old daughter Kulture with Offset, said she and her husband started to laugh. Offset, 29, is also dad to daughter Kalea, 6, and sons Kody, 6, and Jordan, 11, from previous relationships.

The star also expressed her excitement for her baby on the way, saying, "There is something so dear about this pregnancy and I feel like I'm starting a new chapter, and I'm happy about that."

Cardi revealed the pregnancy news while performing with Offset and Migos at the BET Awards in June. After the trio finished "Straightenin," Cardi joined the group for "Type S---." Appearing onstage in an embroidered Dolce & Gabbana bodysuit, a sheer panel in the abdomen exposed Cardi's burgeoning belly.

"But one thing for sure is they'll have each other's back like no one else ever will 🙏🏽🙏🏽," she added.
