Kehlani Welcomes Baby Girl After “Hard But Powerful” Unmedicated Home Birth

R&B star Kehlani is a mommy. The singer welcomed her first child, baby girl Adeya, over the weekend.

In an Instagram post on Monday, Lani disclosed that she had an unmedicated home birth, describing the experience as both strenuous and beautiful.

“This weekend our angel arrived healthy & perfect in every way in our bathroom at home,” the 23-year-old crooner captioned a photo of a baby blanket with colorful pine trees. “Unmedicated home birth was the absolute hardest yet most powerful thing I’ve ever done. Thankful beyond words. In love beyond comparison.”

Lani, who had her first baby with guitarist Javie Young-White, talked more about her decision to have a home birth on Twitter.

“All birth is extremely hard and transformative,” she said. “Home birth is a medical decision as is hospital birth, all birth is mind blowing & powerful. … it’s a next level journey whichever way.”

While emphasizing the splendor and power of childbirth, she didn’t deny the physical pain that accompanies it.

“But I hope everyone knows no one can tell me SHIT after that because LORD…next level, no words!”

Lani said she wouldn’t be posting on social media much in order to rest and spend time with her new family but sent her gratitude to her fans for their love, support and well wishes.

Days before the birth of her child, Lani released the music video for “Butterfly,” which appears on the singer’s While We Wait mixtape that dropped last month.

On Saturday, Cardi B took to her Instagram account to share a shocking picture of her feet and ankles; they were swollen to an alarming size. According to Cardi, the swelling is a side-effect of her recent plastic surgeries that have caused her to cancel performances in order to focus on her healing.

Cardi has been blunt about her decision to opt for plastic surgery to get her post-baby body into shape.

In her always-candid Instagram stories, Cardi has talked about how she has had “lipo” and breast-lift surgeries to change her postpartum body. She has defended the decision before, saying: “My job as an entertainer is a 24-hour job. So, no, I don’t have time to work out. And I wanted specific things that I know that no matter how much I work out, [are] not going to get fixed”.

Cardi’s swollen ankles are just another addition to her ongoing health saga that is causing her to cancel performances.

In late May, Cardi had to cancel a show in Maryland on her doctor’s orders. According to Cardi, the doctors told her to take a step back from the constant performances, explaining that her body needs time to heal. “My doctor was like, ‘Yo, you cannot be doing all these shows because you’re not fully healed'”, Cardi explained via Instagram. “Health is wealth, so I have to do what I have to do. My breasts gotta f—- heal”.

Cardi B has always been candid about her personal history of plastic surgery, previously revealing that she underwent “butt injection” procedures as well as breast augmentation surgery.

But, after having her baby Kulture last July, Cardi has been blunt about the fact that her postpartum body isn’t the same as it was since before she gave birth. “[My weight] has been depressing me, making me sad,” she revealed in her Instagram comments. “I still feel like I got a lot of love handles. It’s not much but I’m used to having a real tight stomach”.

And to the haters that flood her Instagram with comments telling her to simply “work out” and “eat healthfully”? Cardi has a few choice words for them: “I do whatever the f– I want with my body.”

Moms Are Standing Behind This Latina Who Went Viral On Twitter For Showing How Cute Motherhood Can Be Sometimes

Those of us who have kids know that motherhood isn’t all tea parties and soccer practice. It also takes an immense amount of work that involves blood, sweat, tears, and occasionally… puke. In other words, it’s a dirty job, but as our moms would say somebody’s got to do it. But as many moms know, once you have a baby, things that used to gross you out before (i.e. icky bodily fluids) become a part of daily life and maybe even…cute?

No one knows this reality better than Texas-based Latina Desirae Robles who went viral when she shared a relate-able AF photo of herself covered in baby vomit.

According to the Texas-based Robles, she was playing with her daughter Addelina, and before she knew it, “all [she] saw was the puke coming to [her] face”. Instead of rushing to clean herself up as soon as possible, Robles saw the mess as a perfect opportunity for a photo-op.

She quickly snapped a picture of her puke-covered face and sent it off to her boyfriend.

Naturally, her boyfriend found the entire situation hilarious and was particularly amused that she was “calm enough to take a photo” of the incident. As for Robles, she insisted that being covered in baby puke “didn’t bother” her. “She’s my daughter,” she explained.

For the most part, other Latina moms on Twitter knew exactly what she was talking about:

It seems that when you become a mom, your gag-threshold becomes 10x higher.

Some moms even seem happy about always smelling like baby vomit:

We wish we had such a sunny outlook on having to shower every 20 minutes.

Some moms, however, made it known that there’s only so much degradation they can take before they snap:

We can’t help but agree with this one.

It’s situations like these that make us so incredibly grateful for our mothers. It’s just one of the many constant reminders of all the sacrifices they made to raise us into the people we are today!
