John Legend Praises Chrissy Teigen for Revealing Postpartum Depression
“My wife just wrote very candidly about what she went through with postpartum depression and dealing with the aftermath of having a child. We’re very happy in our relationship and very happy to be parents, but, like everybody, we’re human and we have challenges,” John said. “No one should think that our lives are perfect.”
Chrissy wrote an essay, which was published last month, revealing her diagnosis.
“I remember being so exhausted but happy to know that we could finally get on the path of getting better. John had that same excitement. I started taking an antidepressant, which helped. And I started sharing the news with friends and family — I felt like everyone deserved an explanation, and I didn’t know how else to say it other than the only way I know: just saying it,” she wrote.
