John Legend admitted he "didn't see it coming" while talking about his wife, Chrissy Teigen’s Post-natal Depression

The Grammy award-winning singer and model/social media queen welcomed their first child Luna last year, and she opened up to Glamour magazine about her battle with postpartum depression bravely.

“You don't see it coming," he told The Sun. "You're not emotionally prepared for someone that's going through a dark time as you're welcoming this new life.

"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.

"Once you understand what the reasons are then it makes perfect sense and you can adjust accordingly."

John also mentioned that Chrissy's writing the piece was helpful in her ongoing recovery, continuing: "I think it was good for her to talk about it.

"She was already doing better when she was writing the piece. She was coming out of it and was able to see it more clearly with some ¬perspective and I think it was helpful for her to be on her way out of it as she was writing.

"We want three or four children. We're still excited to have more kids and we're going to do it."


Moreover; Chrissy admitted she was in constant physical pain, couldn't stop crying, and would go days without eating; in her powerful open letter. In addition she thanked her husband, John for being there through her unbearable mood swings and for his unwavering support and patience.

"He's exactly as compassionate, patient, loving, and understanding as he seems, “She wrote "I know he must look over at times and think: My God, get it together. But he has never made me feel that way.

"He wants me to be happy, silly, and energetic again, but he's not making me feel bad when I'm not in that place."

John and Chrissy tied the knot in 2013 and have been together for ten years.
