Cardi B announced on Thursday that she will not be participating in Bruno Mars’ upcoming fall tour so that she may have more time to recover from giving birth earlier this month, and in order to spend more time with her newborn babe, Kulture.

The artist said in a statement posted to Twitter and Instagram Thursday evening, “I thought that after giving birth to my daughter that 6 weeks would be enough time to recover mentally and physically. I also thought that I’d be able to bring her with me on tour, but I think I underestimated this whole mommy thing.”

Bruno Mars responded to Cardi’s decision with a supportive message.
