Cardi B has confirmed she secretly married Offset in September.

The 25-year-old rapper took to Twitter on Monday, June 25 to address reports she and the Migos star, who are expecting their first child together, had tied the knot on the day the 'Stir Fry' hitmaker proposed, nine months ago and to explain she simply wanted the moment to be "private", hence the title of her album, 'Invasion of Privacy'.

The 'Bodak Yellow' hitmaker revealed she had no make-up or wedding gown on when they said their vows in a bedroom.

In a lengthy note, Cardi said: "There are so many moments that I share with the world and then there are moments that I want to keep for myself! Getting married was one of those moments!

"Our relationship was so new breaking up and making up and we had a lot of growing up to do but we was so in love we didn't want to lose each other, was one morning in September we woke up and decided to get married.

"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 make up and no ring!

"I appreciate and love my husband so much for still wanting for me [to] have that special moment that every girl dreams of when he got down on his knee and put a ring on my finger and he did that for me!!"

The former 'Love & Hip-Hop' star accompanied the message with the tweet: "This why i name my album 'Invasion of privacy' cause people will do the most to be nosey about your life".

Speculation that the couple were already married was sparked after Offset thanked his "wife" during his acceptance speech for Best Group with his bandmates - Quavo and Takeoff - at the BET Awards on Sunday, June 24, and a subsequent article by TMZ, which confirmed a marriage certificate was awarded in Fulton County, Georgia, on September 20.

Speaking on stage at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, he said: "I thank my wife. You should thank yours."

The couple are still said to be planning a proper wedding ceremony after the 'MotorSport' hitmaker gives birth to their daughter.
