Cardi B, American rapper, says she had to get her vagina stitched after delivering her baby.
The rapper recently gave birth to a baby girl with fellow rapper, Offset.
Cardi said no one told her the full extent of what would happen in the labour room.
“She broke my vagina,” she said on Jimmy Kimmel’s show.
“Why does nobody tell you about those things? Nobody told me they were gonna stitch my vagina.
“People just be like, ‘Oh, when you give birth, it’s gonna hurt.’ But nobody tells you [the real truth].”
The 26-year-old American said one of the biggest challenges of motherhood is keeping her baby, Kulture, away from the public.
“I don’t wanna show my baby out to the public right now, I just want to protect her. I’m not mentally ready. [But] paparazzi be everywhere, like even in my a**hole. I would like to do normal things with my baby, but right now I gotta keep it very low key.
“I am enjoying it. It’s the best. 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.’
“I do feel like I need a rest, but oh my god, like, the happiness that my baby brought me, it’s like, ‘I could do this over and over again.”
