Last week, Kylie Jenner opened up about her two experiences with postpartum depression. Her first experience came after the birth of her daughter, Stormi Webster, on February 1, 2018. Her second experience came after the birth of her son, Aire, on February 2, 2022. She shares both children with Travis Scott.
She has opened up about postpartum depression before but was recently asked about her advice to new mothers who might be experiencing it for the first time in an interview with Vanity Fair Italia. She began by expressing how it was ‘very difficult’ the first time but much ‘more manageable’ the second time around.
“I would tell those women not to overthink things and to live all the emotions of that moment to the fullest. Stay inside that moment, even if it is painful,” she explained. “My advice is to live through that transition without fear of the aftermath. The risk is to miss all the most beautiful things of motherhood as well.”
“I know, in those moments, you think that it will never pass, that your body will never be the same as before, that you will never be the same. That’s not true: the hormones, the emotions at that stage are much, much more powerful and bigger than you,” she continued, encouraging others to fight through it.
That prompted the interviewer to ask Kylie Jenner about the moments that excited her most about becoming a mother. She talked about the unique and special moment of holding the child for the first time in the hospital but also expressed how beautiful a moment it is to bring the child home for the first time.
“Finding myself in the hospital alone with a new and unknown creature in my arms. It’s such a unique and special situation, and it’s all about building with these little beings that you’re learning about. There is another magical moment: when you bring your children home. It is perhaps the most beautiful moment.”
Kylie Jenner has previously talked about her experience with postpartum depression on her Instagram and in an episode of The Kardashians. She opened up about the mental and physical impact of what many call the ‘baby blues.’ “We have to stop putting pressure on ourselves to be ‘back,’” she said.
Kylie Jenner Describes Her Parenting Style
Later on in the interview, Kylie Jenner was asked who inspires her today – an easy question that required a fast response. “My children. And my family,” she said. Those children are growing older every single day, with Stormi celebrating her 5th birthday and Aire celebrating his 1st birthday earlier this month.
It was just a couple of weeks ago that we got our first look at Aire. “I am surprised by their personalities: They already know what they want, and they are so determined. When I think of them, I get emotional. Sorry. They are so tender and at the same time so strong,” she explained when asked what her children are like.
As far as raising her children, she believes in giving her two adorable children ‘different choices,’ adding it’s very important that she communicates and educates them on how to ‘take control and accept responsibility’ for the things they choose to do on a daily basis because those decisions will define them.
When asked where she sees herself in 10 years, she hinted at the possibility of adding to her growing family – but didn’t guarantee anything. She definitely wants to grow as a person and ‘devote myself more to charitable endeavors,’ expressing how important it is to give back some of the fortunes she received.
