Rapper Cardi B has opened up about her experiences of suffering from post-partum depression following the birth of her daughter, Kulture Kiari.

The I Like It singer revealed her emotional rollercoaster following childbirth, explaining how she assumed she'd "avoid" developing the common condition.

The 26-year-old spoke to  Harper Bazaar for the March cover issue, and elaborated on the difficulties of facing life with the feeling of heaviness.

Cardi explained that she felt fine six months ago, when Kulture was first born, until post-partum depression hit her unexpectedly;

“I thought I was going to avoid it,” she revealed to the magazine. “When I gave birth, the doctor told me about postpartum, and I was like: ‘Well, I’m doing good right now, I don’t think that’s going to happen."

She continued; “But out of nowhere, the world was heavy on my shoulders.”

She also got candid about the feeling of losing control over your body following pregnancy, admitting that her body "doesn't feel the same".

She said: “For some reason, I still don’t feel like my body’s the same. I feel like I don’t have my balance right yet. When it comes to heels, I’m not as good at walking anymore."

“I feel like I’m holding a weight on me. I don’t know why because I’m skinnier than I’ve ever been. But there’s an energy I haven’t gotten back yet that I had before I was pregnant. It’s just the weirdest thing.”

Cardi B welcomed Kulture in July with her rapper husband Offset, but the pair announced their divorce shortly afterwards.

The couple secretly wed in September 2017, insisted that the split was good for both of them, and that they simply "fell out of love".

Taking to Instagram, the Grammy-nominated artist said:

“We’re really good friends and you know we’re really good business partners and you know, he’s always somebody that I run to, to talk to and we got a lot of love for each other, but things just haven’t been working out between us for a long time.

“I'm going to always have a lot of love for him because he is my daughter's father.”

They have reportedly reunited after she rejoined her husband at their family home in Atlanta, but Cardi as yet to confirm the claims.

No matter how much you might try to plan a birth, fate sometimes has to intervene. 

Haley Lindsey was excited and nervous to be nearing the due date with her first baby. But there was one issue, her husband, Brooks, was still deployed overseas with the US army. 

Her water broke on Friday morning and Brooks raced to a plane. By the time he landed in Dallas, Haley was 5 centimetres dilated and ready to push. 

Brooks had been planning on hopping on the 3.55 flight back to Mississippi, but he was delayed for two hours. 

Worried that Brooks might not be present at the birth of his daughter, his mother had a brain wave- why not FaceTime him? 

She snook the camera in under her shirt so Brooks could see what was going on. As Haley began to push the doctor realised that they were being recorded and saw Brooks face on the screen. 

"Brooks was telling me it was okay, and I was doing so good and I heard him wincing and saying ‘wow!’ through my pushes," Haley told Love What Matters. "I could hear people in the airport talking and cheering!

"Brooks then went on to say that they were making him board and needed to get off as soon as she finally started to crown and all I remember was my Doctor screaming ‘Don’t let him board the flight! She’s here! She’s here!’ So, the airport personnel let him sit there and watch till it was over!" 

Sitting on the floor crying, Brooks was snapped by a fellow passenger, whose picture soon went viral. 

Eventually, Brooks landed and raced to the hospital to meet the new arrival. Look at how cute they are! 

We're so glad that he got to spend some special time with his new baby.
