Three months after giving birth to her first child, Cardi B has snatched-back and is flaunting her flat stomach on social media.
However, the “Bodak Yellow” rapper revealed she still has one problem area: the dreaded pregnancy Line.
“Ladies how do you guys get rid of the black line in the middle of your stomach after giving birth?? cause bitch,” she wrote on Instagram Friday, along with releasing a photo of herself in a black tracksuit which showed off her toned abs. A dark line can be seen above and below her belly button. According to American Pregnancy Association, the pregnancy line is quite common and is usually caused by the changing or the imbalance of hormones, Yahoo reports.
Several fans suggested she use oils and a “coco butter stick religiously,” while celebrity moms Tamar Braxton and Jessica Alba told Cardi to give the line time to fade away, according to Entertainment Tonight.
Since welcoming her daughter Kulture Kiari with husband Offset, Cardi has been candid about the difficulties of childbirth. During a recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, she said Kulture “broke my vagina.”
Kimmel replied, “That’s a rude thing for her to do. I was always worried about falling on stepping on a crack and breaking my mother’s back.”
“Why nobody tells you about those things? Nobody told me they were gonna stitch my vagina,” Cardi lamented. “People just be like, ‘Oh, you know, when you give birth, it’s gonna hurt.’ But nobody tells you [that].”
Even though pregnancy changed her body, Cardi is embracing motherhood.
“Yes, I am enjoying it. It’s the best,” she said. “It’s like, ‘Oh my gosh, I should have had you when I was a teenager. This is what I was missing my whole life? I love you.’”
