Chrissy Teigen is “ready” to face another battle with postpartum depression if it develops following the birth of her son later this year (18).
The model and her husband John Legend, who are already parents to daughter Luna, are bracing themselves for the baby blues that Chrissy experienced following the birth of her first child as the pregnant star counts down the days to baby number two – and she insists she is prepared if it happens again.
“Do I worry about it with this little boy? I do,” she said at the Create & Cultivate conference in Los Angeles on Saturday (24Feb18). “But I also know that when it does happen – if it does – I’m so ready for it. I have the perfect people around me for it. That’s why I stand for a real core group of people around me.”
Teigen has been candid about speaking out about her depression battle, but she admits she wishes she noticed that she was struggling with it earlier.
“I had just had Luna,” she added. “I knew I had an incredible life and husband and family and all the resources necessary. I knew that I was personally unhappy, but I didn’t think that anything was wrong with it because I just assumed that that’s the way it goes. You have a kid, you’re sad, you lose those endorphins and that’s the way it is.”
“I do wish that more people had spoken up around me,” she added. “I encourage anyone who sees something around them to point it out. It took me to finally sit myself down, because I think it’s hard for people to point something out.”
