Chrissy Teigen’s Biggest Pregnancy Fear…

Chrissy Teigen Fears she will Experience Postpartum Depression for the Second Time

Chrissy Teigen is due to have her second child, a boy, with husband John Legend. Already mother to 22-month-old daughter Luna, the cookbook author spoke candidly over the weekend at the Create & Cultivate conference in LA about her worry of suffering from postpartum depression again.

The model opened up about the postpartum depression that she suffered the first go around with the audience starting off by saying, “Do I worry about this little boy? I do. But I also know that I feel like 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 really stand for a good core group of people around you.”

The 32-year-old mama fought with the ‘down and out’ feelings after she gave birth to Luna. Along with feeling low, she went down a rabbit hole of depression not realizing at the time that she was, in fact, battling postpartum depression.

“I didn’t know I had it,” Chrissy explained. “I knew I had an incredible life, and an incredible husband, and family, and all the resources necessary, and I knew I was personally unhappy, but I didn’t think anything was wrong with it because I just assumed that that’s the way it was. You have a kid, you’re sad, you lose those endorphins, and that’s the way it is.”

Teigen had to have a ‘sit down’ talk with herself and come clean about what was really going on. She wishes one thing had been done differently with her past experience, “I do wish more people had spoken up around me. It took me to finally sit myself down because I think it’s hard for people to point something out.”

Chrissy wrote for April’s issue of Glamour magazine an essay on her past bout of postpartum depression emphasizing, “Postpartum does not discriminate. I couldn’t control it. And that’s part of the reason it took me so long to speak up.”

She went on to say in the writing, “I’m speaking up now because I want people to know it can happen to anybody, and I don’t want people who have it to feel embarrassed or to feel alone.”

Chrissy doesn’t claim to know everything about the topic and realizes everyone who suffers from it has a different experience but she says, “But one thing I know is that-for me-just merely being open about it helps.”

Happy birthday, @theellenshow! This is a full length of me and John!

Thank you, Chrissy, for being candid about a topic a lot of women are too uncomfortable to talk about.
