On Tuesday, Cardi B, who gave birth to daughter, Kulture, nearly one month ago, shared the status of her emotional state with her 29 million Instagram followers.
“This postpartum s**t is annoying,” the first-time mom wrote. She alluded to her experience with the baby blues, feelings of sadness or irritability after giving birth due to hormonal changes. “Like I been emotional all f***ing day for no reason,” the 25-year-old said.
A couple of weeks ago, Cardi announced she pulled out of Bruno Mars’24K Magic arena tour because she has “underestimated this whole mommy thing.” She becomes another celebrity speaking about the emotional task of being a mom in a group that includes Serena Williams.
Motherhood, however, has not kept the Bronx, New York native from creating music. Her upcoming album is scheduled to drop this fall.
