From Secret Vows to Saying Sorry: Revisiting Cardi B and Offset’s Rollercoaster Romance

Wednesday night is destined to be a big one for Cardi B.  

The rapper is heading into the 2019 Billboard Music Awards as the artist with the most nominations this year at a whopping 21 total, including one for “Top Artist” and “Top Female Artist.” No stranger to the annual awards, the “Bodak Yellow” star was up for eight last year and won her first and only so far for “Top Rap Female Artist.”

At the time in May 2018, Cardi was still more than a month away from giving birth to her first child, daughter Kulture Kiari Cephus, with husband Offset. As fans of the breakout star well know, a lot can happen in a year—and a lot did for the couple, whose rocky romance came to a screeching halt by December 2018 only for the relationship to reignite mere weeks later. 

Now as another Billboard Music Awards approaches, the star is expected to take the red carpet with her man by her side. 

As we await a sighting of the star pair come Wednesday night, rewind their romance with E!’s gallery below:

On Sept. 20, 2017, the couple secretly tied the knot at home, just months after they started dating earlier in the year. “We found someone to marry us, and she did, just the two of us and my cousin. I said I do, with no dress, no makeup and no ring!” the rapper revealed to fans months later.

By April, the hit rapper revealed to fans—on the SNL stage—that she was expecting her first child with her famous husband.

In June, the expectant couple celebrated their little one on the way with a fairytale baby shower. “It was a special moment for Offset and Cardi and you could tell there was a lot of love between them and in the room,” a source told E! News at the time. “They are both very excited about the baby coming and are counting down the days.”

The couple’s daughter, Kulture Kiari Cephus, arrived on July 10. The name was inspired by the baby’s musical father.

The couple heated up the Jingle Ball stage in early December with a big smooch.  “Thank you husband. He’s so fine,” she told the crowd. “That’s my baby daddy yo.” However, just days later, Cardi announced they were no longer together.

Shortly after Cardi revealed they had called it quits, Offset took to Instagram with an emotional plea he later featured on his Father of 4 debut studio album. “We’re going through a lot of things right now, a lot of things in the media. I want to apologize to you Cardi. I embarrassed you. I made you go crazy,” he said in the video. “I was partaking in activity that I shouldn’t have been partaking in, and I apologize. You know what I’m saying? For breaking your heart, for breaking our promise, for breaking God’s promise and being a selfish, messed up husband.”

A day later, he crashed her headlining performance at the Rolling Loud Festival in Los Angeles, complete with a cake and 2,000 white and red roses from Venus ET Fleur, worth $15,000, displaying the plea “Take Me Back Cardi.”

While Cardi seemed less than pleased with the grand gesture on stage, she told the press they were “working things out” a month later. On the 2019 Grammys red carpet, they not-so-subtly confirmed they were back on with some serious PDA. Offset later reiterated their progress in an interview on The Breakfast Club, telling the radio hosts they were working behind the scenes to get to know and appreciate each other.

By the spring, the pair was back to putting their romance on display with a steamy joint music video for “Clout” and a surprise performance together at Revolve Festival.
