John Legend Has Spoken Out About Chrissy Teigen's Postpartum Depression
Just in case you needed any more proof that John Legend and Chrissy Teigen are the ultimate couple goals, the Beauty and The Beast singer has praised his model wife for speaking out about her postpartum depression.
In case you don't know already, the new mum wrote an open letter about her experience as part of Glamour magazine's April cover story.
Getting out of bed to get to set on time was painful. My lower back throbbed; my shoulders - even my wrists - hurt. I didn't have an appetite. I would go two days without a bite of food, and you know how big of a deal food is for me.
One thing that really got me was just how short I was with people. I would be in my dressing room, sitting in a robe, getting hair and makeup done, and a crew member would knock on the door and ask: 'Chrissy, do you know the lyrics to this song?' And I would lose it. Or 'Chrissy, do you like these cat ears, or these panda hands?' And I'd be like: 'Whatever you want. I don't care.' They would leave. My eyes would well up, and I would burst into tears. My makeup artist would pat them dry and give me a few minutes.
John has now spoken out in an interview about how 'proud' he is of her for going public with her ordeal.
Speaking in an interview with E! he said:
I'm so proud of her. She showed me the drafts when she was writing it and I knew it would mean a lot to a lot of women for them to see that.
By acknowledging the pain that she's going through, in doing that she also acknowledges the pain that a lot of women go through after they have a child. A lot of people don't want to talk about it. A lot of people feel alone when they're going through it and for her to let people know that they're not alone, I think was really powerful.
Could these too get any lovelier, seriously?
