She's stronger than she knows!!!
Jennifer Lopez has come a LONG way from the block and opens up about life after the hood – MOTHERHOOD that is, inside the June issue of Redbook magazine!!!
The What To Expect When Expecting actress candidly reveals her struggle with postpartum depression after giving birth to twins Max and Emme back in 2008, and how she managed to overcome it.
Here’s what she said:
"I remember after the babies were born, about seven to 10 days in, I was like, 'What is going on with me? I felt sad and depressed and thought the babies didn't love me.'
SO SAD, and we all know that's NOT true!!
That’s when the singer realized that she was going through a case of the "baby blues".
"I actually remember picking up the book [What to Expect When You're Expecting] to try to see what was happening to me, and it said how you have this huge hormonal drop about seven to 10 days after you give birth. It's called the "baby blues." But I just thought they didn't like me!"
We’re glad that like fellow celeb mommy Gwyneth Paltrow, J.Lo is being so honest in sharing her struggle.
Now that she’s waved goodbye to the J.Woes, we’re just wondering if there'll be a little mini Casper in the near future?!!
