The mother-to-be described her baby shower, attended by 85 close friends and family and staged at an art gallery in Atlanta, USA, on Tuesday evening, as a “Bronx fairytale”.

Pink was the order of the day, but it was far from a traditional affair, proceedings only kicking off late at night and the orthodox tea, cupcakes and games were replaced by shots, a DJ and a dancefloor.

The shower ran into the early hours of the morning – a nod to the 25-year-old’s more playful side.

“I don’t like baby showers that be at 5pm in the backyard, eating, cooking hors d’oeuvres, nah!” Cardi was quoted in Rolling Stone earlier this month.

“My s**t is going to start at 9pm because that’s how I celebrate. That’s how Caribbean people celebrate.”

Cardi’s husband, Offset from the trio Migos, posted a series of videos of his wife getting down… well, as much as a heavily pregnant woman can get down.

It recently emerged that the couple, who are expecting a girl, got married in a secret ceremony nine months ago.

Speaking about why she kept the marriage under wraps, she said: “There are so many moments that I share with the world and there are moments that I want to keep for myself. Getting married was one of those moments.

“Our relationship was so new and we had a lot of growing to do, but we were so in love and didn’t want to lose each other.”

Here are a few snaps from her shower.
