Chrissy Teigen Braces For Fan Backlash After Postpartum Depression Revelation
Chrissy Teigen has spoken out, revealing to the world her struggles with postpartum depression. Now, the model mommy admits that she was not only suffering from the baby blues, but she also feared backlash from the public in coming forward with her pain. The 31-year-old worried that she would be pegged as a “whiny, entitled girl” for feeling dark sadness in the midst of such an enviable life following the birth of her daughter, Luna Stephens.
“I’ll just say it: I have post partum depression,” she wrote on Instagram. “So much love to @glamourmag for letting me share something that was eating me up inside for months and months. One of the most amazing things about social media is the ability to interact candidly with friends and fans and it felt so weird knowing what I was going through but not really feeling like it was the right place to speak on it,” she continued. “I’ve always felt genuinely close to all of you and I’m insanely relieved you now know something that has been such a huge part of me for so long.”
