Behati Prinsloo Shares How Postpartum Depression Affected Her

It was easier the second time around.

Behati Prinsloo revealed that she suffered from postpartum depression after giving birth to her first daughter, Dusty. In an interview with Net-a-Porter, the supermodel opened up about life as a working mom.

“After my first baby, I had a little postpartum depression and it was difficult to get back into normal life,” the 30-year-old said in Porter magazine. “But after the second one everything felt so much easier; it was easier for me to work out, breastfeeding was easier.”

Eight months after giving birth to second daughter Gio with husband Adam Levine, Prinsloo walked in Victoria’s Secret fashion show, saying she “loved being pregnant” but was equally excited to get back to work. “I felt so empowered. I was like, ‘I can do this, I have two kids.’ It was a beautiful journey.”

However, she admitted that she’s lucky to have Levine’s family nearby, who help her balance work and kids. According to the mom of two, it’s a struggle trying to do both, adding that she idolizes the women who can. “The people I look up to the most are working mothers; it’s awesome to see these amazing, strong women with kids and a career, killing it at both.”

Prinsloo also talked about her daughters’ very different personalities. “My daughter Dusty is really funny and bossy… Gio is cuddly and sweet,” she said. “It’s weird that you can tell their sense of humor when they’re two. I’m excited to see them a little older and really see their personalities [develop] because I think they’ll be very different.”
