Longtime star and fashion industry favorite on the red carpet Gwyneth Paltrow recently sat down with Good Housekeeping magazine to discuss her experiences with postpartum depression. Though she found the time after first child Apple’s birth to be blissful, things were different with her second child, Moses. “I just thought it meant I was a terrible mother and a terrible person,” she said.
It was her husband, musician Chris Martin, who first broached the subject of depression, and Gwyneth says that acknowledging the problem was the hardest part. Since recovering, she has restarted her film career with a recent musical performance in Country Strong, where she plays an alcoholic country singer.
