Three Months After Giving Birth, Cardi B’s Lost All The Baby Weight: “I Gotta Gain Some Back”
Nearly three months after welcoming daughter Kulture, Cardi B says she’s lost the weight she put on during her pregnancy. In fact, she allegedly shed so much in the months since that she now wouldn’t mind putting some of the pounds back on.
“Now that i lost all the baby weight i gotta gain some back,” she wrote on Instagram while showing off her figure in her date night outfit.
We’re not sure if the weight loss can be attributed to the much raved about benefits of breastfeeding, because the star told Rolling Stone before she gave birth that she wasn’t sure about Kulture “milking” them. But in her weight-loss post, she did make mention of Teami Blends, a company that sells “tea infused products” meant to help with diet. In early September, she said that she drank their products at night after having only two large meals a day (breakfast and dinner). At that time, she said she was weeks away from being back at her preferred size.
It was a 180 considering the soon-to-be 26-year-old also admitted she was considering liposuction to help her get off what weight was left.
“I still feel like I got a lot of love handles right here,” she said on Instagram Live. “It’s not much but it’s like — I’m used to having, like, a real tight stomach.”
She said that she didn’t really have time with her busy work schedule and responsibilities as a new mom to carve out time to exercise.
“If I’m not working, I gotta make sure my baby’s okay,” she said. “I might just get a little lipo, you know what I’m sayin’? I feel like I can work out and my stomach will be back how it used to be. But I really don’t have time to work out. I never been the type to work out. I never stepped a foot in the gym.”
She also recently said that she was even considering some breast augmentation because post-birth, her breasts, which she’s had work done on before, were not as perky as she would like.
“My t–s were already a little low-low, you know what I’m saying, ‘cause I got my t–s done when I was 19 and I never wore a bra and s–t, you know what I’m saying? But when I was pregnant, my s–t was looking nice though, nice. I was, like, ‘Oh s—t.’ Now though? Now Kulture did me filthy,” she said on Instagram. “I don’t give a f–k. If ya’ll motherf–kers see me gone in November or December, I’m getting my t–s done. I don’t give a f–k. Matter of fact, I’m not even gonna call it surgery. I’m just gonna say a t—y renovation.”
Overall though, Cardi wore pregnancy well (she was mostly just stomach) and just weeks after giving birth, was already showing off her figure again. Check out a few snaps she shared of her body after baby by hitting the flip:
