When season two of Kendra premieres on March 14, fans will see a different side of new mom Kendra Wilkinson as she opens up about her struggles with post-baby blues. The reality starlet spoke frankly to OK! about her darkest days.
The 24-year-old new mom said that she had a hard time after Hank’s birth on December 11.
After giving birth, I never brushed my hair, my teeth, or took a shower,” Kendra said. “I looked in the mirror one day and was really depressed. I thought, “Look at me!” I had this glamorous life in L.A., and now [in Indianapolis] I didn’t.”
Kendra admits there were some very dark times. “A couple of times, I even said, ‘I just have nothing to live for,’” she admits.
The former Girls Next Door star also talked to In Touch about her struggles.
I went through some depression after having the baby, which you’ll get to see on the show. It wasn’t complete postpartum depression. I was just going through some things that every woman deals with afterward – like the way my body looked.”
Kendra found one way to beat the blues – having sex! During a recent appearance on Chelsea Lately, Chelsea Handler asked Kendra and Hank about their sex life as new parents.
“[At] the doctor’s appointment following up on everything, he goes, ‘Have you guys had sex?’” Kendra said. “This was, like, five weeks after. We were like, ‘I guess we have to be honest. Yes, we did.’ And he’s like, ‘Ugh! You can’t do that!’”
“We were careful,” Hank added.
