Cardi B has pulled out of her tour with Bruno Mars after declaring on Instagram that six weeks isn't enough time to recover from becoming a mother.

In the post she says she underestimated becoming a mother and isn't ready to leave her child.

The rapper gave birth to daughter Kulture on July 10 and was scheduled to join Bruno for 24 dates across North America for the end of his 24K Magic tour.

The pair collaborated on the song 'Finesse'.

Mars has given his support and understanding to the rapper via social media, saying family is what is important. He has promised to play her hit, 'Bodak Yellow', every night in her honour.

It is Cardi's first baby, and the fourth child of her husband, 26-year-old Offset of Georgia rap group Migos.

Six weeks is also the amount of time Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has taken off following the birth of her first child, Neve Te Aroha, who was born on June 21.
