Motherhood is difficult. It brings with it a slew of difficulties, and celebrities are no exception. Kylie Jenner, the makeup mogul who gave birth to a son in February of this year, opened up about her “baby blues” after the birth.
In the latest episode of The Kardashians’ second season, Kylie revealed about her struggles, “I cried for like three weeks… Every day, to the point where I was laying in bed and my head hurt so much. But I’m feeling much better mentally. That’s great because I’m not crying every day. I don’t have bad days physically; I just have bad days mentally.”
“It’s just the baby blues, and then it kind of goes away,” the 25-year-old explained. “I had it with Stormi, too,” Kylie admitted to Kendall Jenner, who thought Kylie’s postpartum hormones were “probably all over the place.”
On the show, she went on to say, “I’m not a doctor, but I read on Google [that] they call it baby blues when it doesn’t last longer than six weeks.” I began to feel better after about six weeks, but I still had a case of the blues.”
The entrepreneur also revealed that she hadn’t had a night out in nearly a year, and that she had backed out of an event she had planned to attend with her younger sister at the last minute in order to spend time with her son and daughter Stormi, whom she shares with rapper Travis Scott.
Kylie posted a video on Instagram stories in March about the postpartum struggles she was experiencing at the time. “It’s not easy, mentally, physically, or spiritually,” she said. “I didn’t want to go back to life without saying anything.”
She went on to say that while “it may appear to be a lot easier for other people,” she was having a “hard” time herself.
Two months later, the reality star updated TikTok with the news that her hormones were starting to “level out.”
