Kylie Jenner Candidly Shares Postpartum Depression Experience
The reality star is getting real about motherhood.
Kylie Jenner is opening up about the struggles of motherhood.
The reality star, 25, appeared on the cover of Vanity Fair Italy's March issue, and while speaking with the outlet, she got candid about her experience with postpartum depression and how to handle it.
"I have experienced it. Twice. The first time was very difficult, the second was more manageable," Jenner revealed.
She also offered up some advice to fellow moms who are going through the same thing, stating, "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 continued: "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. 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."
Jenner also spoke about the simple pleasures that come with being a mom and welcoming children with Travis Scott—daughter Stormi, 5, and son Aire, 12 months—into the world.
"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," she said, adding, "There is another magical moment, though: when you bring your children home. It is perhaps the most beautiful moment."
This isn't the first time Jenner has spoken about what she deems as the "baby blues." In an episode of The Kardashians that aired in Oct. 2022, she recalled crying "nonstop" after giving birth to her second child.
"It has been really hard for me. I cried nonstop all day for the first three weeks. It is just the baby blues. I had it with Stormi too," Jenner said. "I cried for like three weeks. Like, every day to the point where I would be lying in bed, and my head would just hurt so bad."
"I am not a doctor, but I read on Google. They call it baby blues when it doesn't last past six weeks. And after about six weeks I started to feel better. I definitely had the case of the blues," Jenner said on her hit Hulu reality series.
