Chrissy Teigen Gets Real About Having More Kids After Postpartum Depression
Chrissy Teigen does not shy away from talking about her personal life. She’s been brutally honest about her struggles with postpartum depression following the birth of her daughter, Luna Legend, and in a new interview with Marie Claire, the star opens up even more about how she’s considering growing her family.
“I would definitely adopt or have foster children,” the Lip Sync Battle co-host says in the July issue. “But I loved being pregnant. Maybe I should be scared [of having PPD again], but I don’t know. It couldn’t be any worse than it was — could it?”
Teigen’s honesty about her PPD is refreshing. According to the CDC, anywhere from 11 to 20 percent of women are affected by symptoms at some point in the first year of their babies’ lives.
While many remain quiet, often suffering in silence, Teigen’s honesty continues to be a beacon for so many. If you think you might be suffering from PPD, Postpartum Progress can help.
