The x-rated reason Cardi B is counting down the days

Thirsty new mums the world over will relate to the fact that Cardi B is publicly counting down the days until she can have sex again post-partum.

The 'Bodak Yellow' rapper took to social media to share her desire to "ride" husband Offset, posting a picture of him wearing a cowboy hat.

Concerned Twitter followers of the hip-hop star were quick to query Cardi's ability to get busy, considering she only gave birth to her daughter Kulture on July 7.

"You probably still gotta finish healing first," one fan wrote.

Cardi responded: "3 weeks and 4 days. Yes bitch I'm counting, wassup!"

The record-breaking artist's countdown soon had other mums chiming in with their thoughts on the appropriate wait times.

"Keep counting," one fan wrote.

"We only made it three weeks, but I definitely regretted it... just wait a little longer!" said another.

Some commentators speculated Cardi and Offset would soon be trying for a little brother or sister for Kulture.

Earlier this week, Cardi told fans via Instagram she's hitting the studio to make new music, which may well serve as a good distraction.
