It’s a common complaint – how to lose the excess weight after baby.
But Cardi B says she has the opposite problem following the birth of four-month-old daughter Kulture.
‘I’ve been very depressed because I cannot stop losing weight,’ she said, on Instagram Live on Thursday.
‘And it’s so crazy because when I first gave birth, I did everything to lose my baby weight. I was drinking Teami [tea]so it could curb my appetite and now that I lost all the baby weight…I don’t like looking too skinny.’
She said this isn’t the first time she’s had this problem.
‘I used to look too skinny as a teenager and I used to hate it and I hate it now,’ she said. ‘It’s been really depressing me, making me sad. My weight. You know what I’m saying.’
In her Instagram Live video the 26-year-old also gushed about her baby’s looks, saying Kulture: ‘is just too gorgeous…. They took my best egg.
‘Her lips is crazy… her lips is a mix of Offset, [Cardi’s sister] Hennessy and Rihanna’s lips. This might be Rihanna’s baby.
‘She’s just so exotic looking. She just like…I don’t know. She don’t even look like me. Then her eyes, they just so. Wow! They so big. And it’s like, what the hell? I don’t got big eyes and Daddy don’t have big eyes… she looks like a doll.’
But one thing she doesn’t like about motherhood, is the affect on her love life.
‘I haven’t got f***ed in like, two weeks,’ she said. ‘That last week we were supposed to f*** and I got my f***ing period. That s**t was heavy as f**.’
The I Like It hitmaker is known for her bold outfits but she insists she won’t be making changes her style now she’s a mom.
Asked if she plans to change her style since she had a baby, she said: ‘Not at all. I don’t feel like I gotta change my style because I had a baby. I feel like the only time I should change my style is if I have my baby on me.
‘Like, no I don’t want to wear a god damn thong and walk around my baby. But I don’t feel like I gotta change.’
And the rapper is ‘very nervous’ about releasing her own fashion line.
She added to Entertainment Tonight: ‘I’m actually very nervous because I hope that people like my collection. I know it’s a little bit different and I know people was not expecting what I was gonna drop. So I hope it does good. I’m about to see so many people, so many celebrities, so it’s like oh snappity, snap, snap! … It feels really amazing [to have star support].
‘A lot of people think it’s supposed to be a catty thing, and it just feels good. When other women show love to each other, and they don’t know how much that means to me though. One day they might need a kidney and I might give you mine and I barely drink, so mine might be good.’
