Nicki Minaj has admitted breastfeeding is ‘painful’ as she opens up on motherhood.

The Trinidadian-American rapper – who welcomed her son into the world three months ago – has opened up on her birthing story and motherhood as a whole during an impromptu fan Q&A on Twitter.

Asked about her first time breastfeeding her child, she wrote: “He had no problem breastfeeding. He latched on in the hospital which was very surprising to me.

“I was afraid maybe he wouldn’t. But breastfeeding is very painful. Pumping is too. Women make this stuff look way too easy. Moms are really superheroes (sic)”

When a follower suggested this was “short” for a first-time mother, Nicki pointed out that she slept for a long time.

She explained: “Well I was actually in labor all night but all they did was let me sleep until I dilated far enough to pish.

“The epidural didn’t hurt either. They numbed me up real good. So I took my a** right to sleep (sic)”
