John Legend on Supporting Wife Chrissy Teigen During Her Postpartum Depression:

John Legend is not only a Grammy and Oscar-winning singer/songwriter and proud dad to 11-month-old daughter Luna, he’s also Chrissy Teigen‘s number one supporter.



Legend has been by his wife’s side every step in her recovery before and after Teigen publicly revealed her painful battle with postpartum depression.


“For me as a husband, it was my job to do the best I could to support her and understand what she was going through and do whatever I could do to help her. I feel like that’s the least I could do,” the La La Land star, 38, said.


“[As a man] you don’t know internally what it feels like. You should read about it and understand what it is and really just be there to help,” he advised other partners and family members on understanding PPD. “You need to be present and you need to be compassionate. And we’re all learning and trying to figure it out as we go. At least do that and try to figure it out together.”


And no one was prouder than Legend when Teigen shared her experience with the world.

“I’m glad she wrote about it,” he shared. “I think it was powerful for her to let a lot of women know they’re not alone, and no matter how much money you have or fame, anybody can feel that. And it’s hard for anybody no matter how successful you are and how many resources you have.”


“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,” Teigen described.


The mother of one credited her husband’s unwavering support with helping her through. “He’s exactly as compassionate, patient, loving and understanding as he seems,” she wrote.


“It’s a difficult thing to be a new father and for my wife to be a new mother,” Legend admitted. “[Parenting] advances the level of partnership you share. It’s exciting to see how we as a couple grow together and learn how to react to the challenges and the joys.”

All the men that beat up their wives should come into this post and see what a husband's role is in the home. It's not only to say lie down there, open leg, put in and out, release and still beat that same woman.
Be supportive. Don't be a monster but a husband.

I just had my baby and I can say this shit is real. It's my first baby and as much as it's the best experience of my life, I get emotional and overwhelmed and unhappy for reasons I can't explain. The first few nights were intense because my baby wouldn't sleep and wouldn't stop crying and next thing I was crying along. Thank God for my husband, mum and MIL. Cant believe I typed all this. Phewwww! Kudos to all women. We rock! OK bye

I experienced this too with my second child. That i lived till today is the grace of God. I was living in a foreign land with no family or friends and a one year old by my side. The only person I knew was my husband who was supposed to be my strenght and support, instead decided to cheat on me with an older divorced lady and hit me when I asked his whereabouts. I almost committed suicide . I was just 26!
Not just hiding to cheat but rubbing it in my face yet he refused to work. My mom had to work 3 jobs to send me money for diapers. I based myself up, learnt the language and got myself a well paying job. Today I'm still in the marriage and he is wondering why I dont ask for his whereabout anymore and why i don't love him after he apologised!

Do you even understand what the post is about? If you don't, then walk pass and don't show your ignorance to the world.

Post partum depression is real. So real that it can happen to anybody. Our brain processes life experiences differently so because other people went through same and found it easy doesn't discountenance the experiences o those who felt it differently.

Im further shed because you're a woman and to see you spew such gibberish is shocking. You don't even know how pregnancy will be for you, not to talk about birth and then after-birth. Pray it doesn't happen to you

And learn to be sensitive!! You don't have to be knowledgeable to be empathetic

Faith said...

Please, take to your doctor and if it persists, they might refer you to a psychiatrist. Its real and if left untreated might even affect the bonding between mother and child. Treatment doesn't have to me by medication, your doc will discuss things you can do alone or with your husband that can ease the symptoms.

Be strong!! It is well with you
