Cardi B made history by co-hosting The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, and she started off the monologue strong.


"I'm making history tonight my album just dropped," she told the audience, "but I'm the first late-night host that isn't a white guy."


Cardi served as the perfect foil for Jimmy Fallon. The "Bodak Yellow" rapper even trolled President Donald Trump for his ill-fitting coats, saying, "What is up with that coat? It looks like me when I was trying to hide my baby bump."

She told Fallon what all of her sounds meant who in turn tried to awkwardly imitate her signature Okurrrrrr and Eoooowwwww phrases.


The 25-year-old, who just announced her pregnancy, didn't miss a step with all the mom moments. Fallon even asked her to read a children's book titled, "Go The F*ck To Sleep."


Cardi B even discussed bringing her baby on tour with Bruno Mars.

I don't know if it's the strength of the fetus, but I have never felt so hungry to succeed.

When guest John Mulaney came on the show to talk about his upcoming hosting gig on Saturday Night Live, he brought Cardi B a present for her baby, a tiny cardigan. The two then joked about how they had very different proms.


Cardi even recorded a special customized message for a fan named Angel. Of course, she didn't shy away from profanity, so it shocked Fallon, but that's what she's famous for.
