New parenthood hasn't always been easy for Chrissy Teigen and John Legend.
In a candid new interview, the 38-year-old singer opened up about his wife's battle with postpartum depression following the April 2016 birth of their first child, daughter Luna.
"You don't see it coming. You're not emotionally prepared for someone that's going through a dark time as you're welcoming this new life," John recently told The Sun.
"When you don't understand what's happening, it's a bit challenging to figure it out and you don't know if it's something you've done or some other reason why she's not feeling well," he continued.
"Once you understand what the reasons are then it makes perfect sense and you can adjust accordingly," John added.
Luckily, the "Love Me Now" singer revealed Chrissy's struggle with postpartum depression hasn't deterred the couple from wanting to have more kids in the future. "[Chrissy is] already doing better. [We still] want three of four children," he said.
The 31-year-old model first revealed her postpartum depression diagnosis in early March. "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,'" Chrissy said of returning to work after giving birth to Luna.
"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," she continued.
"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," Chrissy added.
