Over the weekend, "The Trap Selena" was the musical guest on Saturday Night Live where she officially revealed her pregnancy, performing hit single "Be Carfeul" in a custom Christian Siriano gown.

Most of the world rejoiced because what's better than one Bartier? Two!!! But per usual, haters won't let us have happy moments and some people suggested her career was over because apparently women can't have careers and families.

It’s so fucking annoying how some ppl are saying Cardi B’s career is over b/c she’s pregnant. Y’all don’t be saying that shit when a man in the early stage of their career has a child. Shit’s so fucking sexist.🙄🙄🙄A baby don’t stop her from having money & being able to rap.

In her first interview discussing her pregnancy, Cardi B addressed the sexist notion on Hot 97's Ebro In the Morning, asking, "Why can't I have both? Like, why do I have to choose a baby or a career?"

"I don't like the feeling that people making me feel," she told hosts Ebro and Laura Stylez. "Like a blessing is like a mistake or something."

And then the rapper shut down all the naysayers in the best way possible. "I'm 25 years old. And I'mma say this in the most humblest way: I'm a millionaire," reminding people that she is A) a grown-ass woman, and B) independent and financially stable enough to take care of herself and her baby.

"The industry is never promised, but I know if I make the right money moves I'm gonna always have money," she said.

The Grammy nominee went on to say how so many women don't have a choice to stop working when they're pregnant, and how she's even more driven now. "You think Imma give up when I gotta feed me and my child? Negative."

She also addressed the public scrutiny of her relationship to fiancé Offset. The Migos rapper has children with three other women, but Cardi B said he's a "great father to his kids" so she "will never lose," even if the couple doesn't get married. "I'm not having a baby with a deadbeat."
