In a new interview, the 31-year-old model candidly spoke about life with her baby girl, Luna, and the struggles she faced after becoming a first-time mom.
"Just know that there’s a light on the other side. When I was in the midst of everything, I could never imagine myself on the other side of it. Now, I’m able to look at September, October, November, December, and shake my head at how dark and crazy of a period it was," Chrissy recently told Refinery 29.
"Unfortunately, you can only really do that when you’re out of it," she continued. "There’s no other way to explain it. And there’s no better feeling than being out of it."
Chrissy additionally admitted she still struggles from time to time. "You have your good and bad days. I just had a bad day a couple days ago. But the bad days do not outweigh the good days anymore. Just when you think it’s really, really bad, it’s going to get better," she said.
"So hopefully, if you’re going through something tough you can find some peace in knowing that," the star added.
Chrissy first opened up about her postpartum diagnosis in early March — and revealed at the time that she hopes to get pregnant again in 2017 or soon after.
"I couldn’t figure out why I was so unhappy. I blamed it on being tired and possibly growing out of [my career]: 'Maybe I’m just not a goofy person anymore. Maybe I’m just supposed to be a mom,'" she told Glamour of struggling to return to work after giving birth to Luna in April 2016.
"When I wasn’t [working], I never left the house. I mean, never. Not even a tiptoe outside. I’d ask people who came inside why they were wet. Was it raining? How would I know — I had every shade closed," Chrissy continued.
"Most days were spent on the exact same spot on the couch and rarely would I muster up the energy to make it upstairs for bed. [My husband, John Legend], would sleep on the couch with me, sometimes four nights in a row," Chrissy said. "I started keeping robes and comfy clothes in the pantry so I wouldn’t have to go upstairs when John went to work. There was a lot of spontaneous crying."
"Postpartum does not discriminate. I couldn’t control it. And that’s part of the reason it took me so long to speak up: I felt selfish, icky, and weird saying aloud that I’m struggling. Sometimes I still do," she added.
Despite her struggle, Chrissy said she is more focused on her family than ever — and still hopes to welcome more children with John, 38, in the future! "I love John and Luna more than I can imagine loving anything, and John and I still hope to give Luna a few siblings. Postpartum hasn’t changed that," she said.
This isn't the first time Chrissy — or John! — has opened up about expanding their brood in recent interviews. In fact, the couple can't seem to stop gushing about wanting more kids!
