It can seem like celebrities are some kind of super human species who bounce back after having babies, like nothing happened at all. So, it’s incredibly refreshing when stars, like Cardi B, humanise the experience and get real and relatable on life after giving birth.
Recently Cardi B took to the red carpet, only weeks after giving birth to her baby boy. Her fans were quick to jump to conclusions wondering if she’d undergone lipo or surgery because she almost looked too good, or ‘snatch’ as Cardi B would say. We love how Cardi B responded, with a refreshing honesty.
The rapper shared in her Instagram stories earlier today, “Everybody’s like: ‘Cardi, you so snatched. What did you do? You did lipo? You had a tummy tuck?'”
She opened up, “You cannot do surgery after you give birth. Especially me, I lost so much blood, guys,” One day I’ma talk to you guys about my crazy a** delivery. But anyways, yes, I look snatched.”
The star showed how if she stood front on, like she did on the front carpet she looked one way, and then she turned to the side and shared, “But I’m really like this, guys. You know I like to be real with you guys. And that’s because my skin is still loose and I still got a little pouchy-pouch right here. And oh, child, if I show y’all my back fat and my face is still so fat and my neck, but f**k it. Take ya’ll f**king time, it’s really hard dealing with kids, especially after you do two kids. After you give birth, child.”
The star appeared at Paris Fashion Week in a dramatic gown, wowing fellow guests and her fansa round the world.
Cardi B and her partner Offset, welcomed a baby boy on September 4th. They are yet to reveal their baby’s name but they did share an intimate photo of the family on Instagram.
How long did it take you to feel almost normal after birth?
