John Legend Is Proud Of Wife Chrissy Teigen For Opening Up About PPD

Chrissy Teigen recently revealed to the public her battle with postpartum depression, and her husband couldn’t be prouder!

According to E! News, John Legend is happy to stand right by her side as she keeps fighting. Speaking to a reporter 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.”

He even offered up some advice for other men out their with wives struggling with PPD. To them, he said:

“You have to be present. You have to be compassionate. You have to understand what the reasons for them feeling what they’re feeling are. I think once you know the reasons. I think you can be more helpful in identifying what they’re going through.”

Chrissy is really lucky to have such a supportive and wonderful husband. We wish her the best as she moves forward!
