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.

How long did it take you to feel almost normal after birth?

  • Unfortunately they usually only show celebs after they’ve gotten their bodies almost back to post-pregnancy. Not everyone can bounce back quickly after giving birth.

  • I had a traumatic birth, and it took me a while to feel like myself again after

  • I had two caesareans. I was definitely more conscious the second time around to do the right thing to get back to “normal” a bit quicker than my first caesarean, but it still took a while.

  • I had a traumatic birth with infected stitches and required a blood patch so when I went home I was unable to care for my son. It took me weeks to recover from those things.

  • some people’s bodies bounce back super fast, mine did not and still hasn’t

  • Yes it’s something you need to understand having a baby. As natural as it is, the unnatural feeling your body feels after is something else!

  • I was the biggest I’ve been after my first but my second I ate healthier and exercised almost all the way (running) and still walked right up to the day. I bounced back to my normal weight within a few weeks.

  • I lost a lot of blood after my last baby. It took me weeks to have enough energy to get out and about. Even then I couldn’t stay out too long

    Reply

  • It took me more than 6 months to feel normal.

  • I’ve had 3 kids in 4 years and my body isn’t the same anymore have I accepted it? No! Have I done anything about it? Not really.

  • Boy, it took me more than 6 months to feel normal again!! With a colicky baby who was screaming at nightb& only settle rocking her to sleep!

    Reply

  • It took me about 6 months to start feeling normal again, almost the entire time it took me to lost the 25kg I’d gained during pregnancy.

    Reply

  • Never heard of her name before.
    My body didn’t change much after the birth of my kids

    Reply

  • My body never went back to normal but that’s ok, i made something incredible.

    Reply

  • I never felt ‘normal’. Our bodies change so much during pregnancy and afterwards.
