Cardi B says that she has 'met her match' in newborn daughter Kulture
"I can't believe I have a boss."
Cardi B has declared that she has "met her match" in her newborn daughter, as she opened up about the challenges of motherhood.
The rapper welcomed her first child, a baby girl named Kulture Kiari, with her husband, Offset, earlier this month.
She announced on Thursday that she would not be performing in Bruno Mars' 24K Magic Word Tour, as she had "underestimated this mommy thing" and wanted to spend more time with her daughter.
According to PEOPLE Magazine, she followed that up with an Instagram Live, revealing how she "respects others more than ever now".
“I met my match. She is very demanding. I can’t believe I have a boss. I really have a boss.
“When my baby wanna eat, she wanna eat.
"It’s not like, ‘Oh, three minutes,’ no. ‘Gimme the milk now!’
"You gotta burp her right away — everything, everything, everything. She wants everything.”
The 25-year-old went on to say that she didn't think it would take her so long to heal, and that she "thought six weeks was going to be good enough".
“There’s this feeling that, as soon as my baby came out, that I have that is just like … I can’t leave my baby at night, not for one second.
“A lot of people keep telling me, ‘You need to find a nanny because you gotta start working soon,’ and it’s so hard because I want to be with my baby every second.”
She recalled how having a baby of her own is beyond anything that she had read in parenting books, saying:
“I respect mothers more than ever now.”
“I see moms differently — especially the young ones [who] barely have experience, they barely have money.
“It’s like, ‘Wow, I don’t know how they could do it.’”
