Cardi was as real as always on The Breakfast Club! Just as her rap career was starting to bloom, Cardi B got pregnant which made her quite overwhelmed. The star admitted that she thought about not keeping the baby.
Although now Cardi is super proud of her bump and glows with happiness at the thought of becoming a first-time-mom, in the very beginning of her pregnancy, there was a moment when she considered abortion.
She was scared of becoming a mom but soon realized she was actually excited to welcome a baby so soon into her engagement with Offset.
When indirectly asked whether or not she ever considered aborting the baby on the radio show, Cardi admitted: ‘Kinda, sorta. But then I did not want to deal with the whole abortion thing. I just did not want to.’
It must have been really scary for the star to find out that she is expecting while her schedule was so full.
With her debut album Invasion of Privacy in production, Coachella, a world tour with Bruno Mars coming and many other shows and gigs planned, the baby must have felt like too much.
But Cardi was quick to realize it was a blessing.
‘You know what, I am a grown woman. I am 25 years old. I am gonna say this in the humblest way… I am a schmillionaire. I am prepared for this. I do not want to wait until I am 30-something to have a kid. I want my kid now that I have energy and stuff.’
Still, she confessed that ‘No, it wasn’t planned. It was just one night… it was a good night. That one night, it had to be that night.’
A lot of people on social media have been slamming her decision to become a mother so soon into her successful career, and the rapper hates that way of thinking.
‘It really bothers me, and it disgusts me because I see a lot of women online like, ‘I feel sorry for you, your career is over.’ As a woman, why can’t I have both? Why do I gotta choose a career or a baby? I want both.’
