John Legend Praises Chrissy Teigen For Her Postpartum Depression Essay


John Legend and Chrissy Teigen are still officially the cutest celebrity couple. John recently praised Chrissy for her honest essay about postpartum depression.

In case you’ve been hibernating this winter, John Legend and Chrissy Teigen are pretty much peak #RelationshipGoals.

They’re hilarious on Twitter, always honest, and seem to be pretty down-to-Earth considering that they’re both insanely attractive and talented. Chrissy recently wrote an essay for Glamour magazine opening up about her struggle with postpartum depression after giving birth to their daughter Luna:

"“I’m speaking up now because I want people to know it can happen to anybody and I don’t want people who have it to feel embarrassed or to feel alone. I also don’t want to pretend like I know everything about postpartum depression, because it can be different for everybody. But one thing I do know is that—for me—just merely being open about it helps. This has become my open letter.”"

Seriously, you need to read the entire essay, but that excerpt is probably enough to tell that it was incredibly important for Chrissy to go public with her diagnosis. And John, as she mentioned repeatedly in the essay, has been nothing but supportive. In a recent interview with People magazine, he again expressed support:

"“I think it was powerful for her to let a lot of women know they’re not alone, and no matter how much money you have or fame, anybody can feel that. And it’s hard for anybody no matter how successful you are and how many resources you have.”"

Thank you, Chrissy, for making sure other women know they’re not alone and thank you, John, for showing just how important a supportive partner can be.
