Adele has always been a celeb to keep their personal life out of the spotlight. In the December issue of Vanity Fair, Adele lets her guard down and shows us a different side of her. The singer opens up about motherhood, relationships, and her battle with depression.
“I can slip in and out of it quite easily. It started when my granddad died, when I was about 10, and while I never had a suicidal thought, I have been in therapy, lots,” stated the star in her interview with Vanity Fair.
When her son, Angelo Konecki, was born, the star exclaimed that her battle with depression altered:
“My knowledge of postpartum—or post-natal, as we call it in England—is that you don’t want to be with your child; you’re worried you might hurt your child; you’re worried you weren’t doing a good job,” she said. “But I was obsessed with my child. I felt very inadequate; I felt like I’d made the worst decision of my life.”
The singer admitted that it can happen to any new mom, and that it plays a big part into why she’s scared to have another baby.
