Cardi B Shares Her Concerns About Her Post-Baby Body

The biggest frustration most new moms share is dealing with the pesky baby weight that for whatever reason, sometimes sticks around just a tad longer than we would like. But new mom Cardi B, who gave birth to daughter Kulture this past summer, seems to have the opposite problem. The entertainer recently lamented that her post-baby body is making her depressed - but not for the reasons you may suspect.

"I've been very depressed because I cannot stop losing weight," Cardi said via Instagram Live this past Thursday. "And it's so crazy because when I first gave birth, I did everything to lose my baby weight . . . and now that I lost all the baby weight . . . I don't like looking too skinny."

She went on to add that she tries to eat, but doesn't have much of an appetite. Her parents reportedly have also stepped in, but this seems to deter her even further.

"[It] is so stressful, not having no appetite at all," she said. "Then my parents . . . the more they force me to eat, the more I don’t want to eat."

She continued her moment of openness and honesty with her fans, going on to share some of the ups and downs of first-time motherhood - including working through regular sleep and tummy troubles, teething frustrations, and how she just can't quite yet bring herself to leave her daughter with a sitter. Despite these challenges, she revealed that there is nothing more she loves right now than being a mom.

"I just don't trust nobody with my kid yet," she admitted. "[But] I love motherhood. I love learning everything. When my baby cries, I know her gums are hurting, she's constipated or she sleepy. I love being a mom more than anything."


Cardi clearly also loves her daughter more than anything, which was apparent as she went on to describe her.

"[She] is just too gorgeous," she said, "She looks like a doll."

Kulture is the first child for the 26-year-old Bodak Yellow rapper, who she welcomed on July 10 of this year with fellow rapper Offset, also 26, from the hip-hop and trap music trio Migos. She is their first child together.
