Cardi B Defends Choice to Keep Child: “I’m Prepared for This”
Having a child is no cakewalk, and Cardi B admits there was a moment after discovering she was pregnant that she considered abortion.
Still, her desire to be a mother ultimately beat out the impulse.
During an interview with The Breakfast Club, Cardi said there was a lot going through her head while accepting her pregnancy — something she confirmed for the first time publicly while performing on Saturday Night Live. Still, she said she's in a perfect position to rear her own lil' girl or guy, okuuuur?!
“[I] Kind of, sort of [considered abortion] and then again it’s just like no, I just didn’t want to deal with the whole abortion thing, I just didn’t,” she said. “I just didn’t want to and it’s just like, you know what, I'm a grown woman. I'm 25-years-old. I'm gonna say this in the most humblest way: I'm a shmillionaire, you know what I’m saying? And I'm prepared for this."
Cardi added that it's tough to deal with haters who say she'll ruin her life and career by having a baby. Still, she's staying strong.
“It just really bothers me and it disgusts me because I see a lot of women online like, ‘Oh I feel sorry for you, oh your career is over,’” she said. “As a woman, why can’t I have both? Why do I gotta choose a career or a baby? Like, why can’t I have both? I want both.”
