“I also thought that I’d be able to bring her with me on tour, but I think I underestimated this whole mommy thing.”
She says pulling out of the tour has has been a really hard decision for her and hopes her fans will understand.
Bruno Mars has responded on Twitter supporting her decision: “The most important thing is you and your family’s health.”
He added: “We love you Cardi and we will play Bodak Yellow every night in your honour.
“Please give your baby girl a hug from me and a hug on behalf of everyone on The 24k Magic Tour.”
