Iggy Azalea says being a working mom makes life “super satisfying.”
The 31-year-old rapper is mother to 15-month-old son Onyx – who she shares with rapper Playboi Carti – and has said juggling motherhood is “really difficult” but the challenge makes her feel “much more accomplished” in life.
She said, “Honestly, it’s definitely really hard, but that’s what makes it super satisfying. I feel much more fulfilled to know that I can do all of these things at once.

“But sometimes it can be very stressful. I like to spend all day with my son, and he doesn’t go to bed until 7am.
‘That’s when the clock starts for me, whether it’s in the studio or on other creative projects. I don’t go to bed until 4:30 am and my son wakes up at 7:30 am.’
Iggy says she has developed more “respect” for other working moms, and that her life has become a “never-ending cycle of balancing” between the different sides.

The Fancy hitmaker also credits motherhood by bringing a softer side to herself that she previously kept hidden.
She told People magazine, “I’m a lot nicer and more loving than people might know because my musical side is my powerful, aggressive side.
‘I’m very blunt in my life that way. But I think there’s a more vulnerable, loving side of me that I don’t necessarily share with the world that much.
“Being daring or feeling more powerful might be my way of protecting myself a little bit, because I’m actually very emotional and my feelings get hurt very easily.”
