Nicki Minaj opened up about parenting and revealed she almost broke up with her hubby after giving birth.
She also got candid about the challenges that come with motherhood and said she wishes someone told her about them.
The Barbie World hitmaker also revealed that when she welcomed her son, she and her husband navigated his infant world without any outside help.
“I’m not going to lie, things got testy between us. Because of our history, I think we knew we’d get past it. But there’s no such thing as confidence in parenthood. I kind of wish that someone had told me — although I’m sure I wouldn’t have been able to understand it — that there’s a level of anxiety, and you think it’s going to go away, but in fact, it gets scarier,” she said.
Minaj also opened up about parenting choices that she and Petty have made for their son, including not allowing him to eat sweets or drink juice.
“This is because of illnesses like diabetes that run in our community. I’m not in favour of body positivity if it means unhealthy bodies,” she shared. “That’s bull. It’s not believable, so let’s stop pretending,” she added.
