Cardi B is “depressed” after losing all of her baby-weight.
The 26-year-old rapper revealed she’s unhappy with her post-baby body, months after giving birth to her daughter Kulture, who was born in July.
During an Instagram Live, the “Bodak Yellow” hitmaker told fans, “I’ve been very depressed because I cannot stop losing weight. And it’s so crazy because when I first gave birth, I did everything to lose my baby weight. I was drinking Teami [a weight loss tea] so I could curb my appetite and now that I lost all the baby weight I don’t like looking too skinny.”
The Bronx native gave fans a glimpse of her body by sharing video of her posing in her underwear. The star says she’s determined to gain some weight back, and revealed that she’s always wanted a curvier body.
“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.”
Cardi B said that she’s had “no appetite at all” and blames stress and her busy schedule for her continued weight loss.
“I want to gain weight so bad. I’m really trying to gain weight y’all and it’s been hard and I don’t know how,” she lamented. “After I gave birth, I was so thirsty to lose all the baby weight and now it’s so hard for me to gain weight and I hate it. Then my parents- the more they fore me to eat, the more I don’t want to eat.”
The rapper opened up about being a first-time mother and said she’s not relying on any hired help when it comes to raising her daughter.
“I don’t have a babysitter yet, I really gotta get a baby sitter and a nanny but I just don’t trust nobody with my kid,” she said. “My family help me take care of my kid but they have a life so I really have to depend on myself. But I love it though, I love motherhood. I love learning everything. When my baby cries, I know her gums are hurting, she’s constipated or she’s sleepy. I love being a mom more than anything.”
