Whitney Port opened up about her pregnancy and how it affected her body as well as her own perception of herself. Apparently, she gained no less than 40 lbs. and that was one of the reasons why her pregnancy was ‘really tough.’
In July of 2017, the woman and her hubby Tim Rosenman became the parents of an adorable baby boy they named Sonny Sandford.
Now that the baby is already six months old, the mother is able to look back at the time she was expecting him with more clarity.
Whitney has been super open about the process even then as well as after she gave birth and has always admitted that it was really hard for her.
Gaining so much extra weight was, according to the woman, one of the toughest parts of carrying the baby.
In addition, she also suffered from a hormonal imbalance after she welcomed Sonny and that was not the best experiences either.
‘For me, gaining the weight was hard. I had a really tough time with my body image,’ the blonde beauty confessed.
‘Before I became pregnant, health and fitness were super important to me. I think I was a bit more vain. Seeing my body change and things happen to it that I could not control was difficult. I wondered if my husband was still attracted to me and I did not feel very good in clothes.’
She went on to emphasize that despite the fact that she may sound a bit vain, in reality, the way you feel about yourself always affects your personality and attitude in life.
Luckily for her, it didn’t take long after she gave birth to get back into shape.
And while the woman revealed she did not go through postpartum depression, she did have a hormonal imbalance.
‘I was emotional and would cry at anything for about a month. I thought I was going to come home and be the happiest person since I had just had a baby. And then I felt guilty that I was not the happiest person ever. And then I think I was even more hard on myself, which is a vicious cycle.’
Nowadays, she’s doing so much better and is great at balancing both her work and motherhood.
