LONDON - Cardi B says she is "overwhelmed" by the love she has been receiving since she confirmed her pregnancy over the weekend.

Alongside a screenshot of Rihanna's post for her, Cardi wrote on Instagram: "The love I'm receiving is overwhelming! I can't thank you enough for always finding the time to share your support!! Thank you a million times @badgalriri (sic)"

Cardi also posted a screenshot of 50 Cent's tweet, which read: "This is some fly s**t, from the bottom to the top. (Only HipHop) congratulations Cardi B & Offset. (sic)"

The 25-year-old rapper announced her pregnancy by showing off her baby bump in a tight fitting dress on Saturday Night Live over the weekend.

Taking to Twitter after, she wrote: "I started winning when the whole world was doubting on me! think imma lose with my little baby counting on me?"

Meanwhile, Cardi B previously insisted she is working hard to make things better for her future children and wants to be able to give them all she can.

She said: "This is my work ethic: I do not want to raise my future kids where I was raised, and I know the only way to do it is working, working, working, working, working. I don't want to live in a small Bronx apartment. I don't want to have three kids that got to share one room. I don't want my kids to go to school and get gang-affiliated. I don't want to do welfare. I don't."
