Chrissy Teigen has revealed that she's concerned about suffering from postpartum depression following the birth of her second child.

"Do I worry about it with this little boy? I do," she said (opens in new tab) at the Create & Cultivate (opens in new tab) conference in L.A. "But I also know that I feel like when it does happen, if it does, I’m so ready for it. I have the perfect people around me for it. That’s why I really stand for a good core group of people around you."

"I didn’t know I had it," she continued. "I knew that I had an incredible life, and an incredible husband, and family, and all the resources necessary, and I knew that I was personally unhappy, but I didn’t think anything was wrong with it because I just assumed that that’s the way it was. You have a kid, you’re sad, you lose those endorphins, and that’s the way it is."

The model/cook/host originally opened up about her struggles with postpartum back in March 2017, saying (opens in new tab), "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. John would sleep on the couch with me, sometimes four nights in a row. 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."
