Cardi B “lost so much blood” during childbirth.
The 28-year-old rapper welcomed her second child earlier this month, and has said her labour process was harrowing because she ended up losing a significant amount of blood.
Speaking on her Instagram Story as she hit back at those who claim she has already had surgery to snap back into shape, she said: “Everybody is like ‘Cardi you so snatched, what did you do, you did lipo, you had a tummy tuck?’
“You cannot do surgery after you give birth, especially me, I lost so much blood, guys. One day, I’m going to talk to you guys about my crazy-a** delivery.”
Cardi went on to share a few poses she’s perfected in an effort to conceal parts of her post-baby body, and told her followers not to rush getting back into shape.
She added: “F*** it, take your f****** time, it’s really hard dealing with kids, especially when you do two kids after you give birth.”
Meanwhile, Cardi – who has her second baby, as well as three-year-old daughter Kulture, with her husband Offset – recently said she keeps “crying for no reason” following her child’s birth.
She wrote on Twitter: “Can’t wait till these weird postpartum hormones completely leave my body. I be crying for no reason. (sic)”
The ‘WAP’ hitmaker confirmed the arrival of her second child, a baby boy, earlier this month with a sweet behind-the-scenes photo of herself, her child and Offset in a hospital bed.
She captioned the snap: "9/4/21 [dinosaur, heart and teddy bear emojis] (sic)"
