Kylie Jenner just came clean about the realities of postpartum blues

“I cried non-stop all day for the first three weeks”

BEAUTYcrew Beauty Editor / October 21 2022

The first few months after giving birth can be tough for any mother something beauty mogul Kylie Jenner can personally attest to.

In the latest episode of The Kardashians, the mum of two revealed to sister Kendall Jenner she’d been dealing with postpartum “baby blues” following the birth of her son.

“It’s been really hard for me,” she explained. “I cried non-stop all day for the first three weeks.” 

This isn’t Jenner’s first rodeo though, and she insisted the dip in her mental health was “just the baby blues,” and after a while “it kind of goes away”, sharing “I had it with Stormi too.” 

The Kylie Cosmetics founder said she would cry so much that she’d “be lying in bed and my head would just hurt so bad.” 

“I’m not a doctor, but I read on Google [that] they call it ‘baby blues’ when it doesn’t last past six weeks,” said Jenner in a confessional during the episode. “After about six weeks I started to feel better.”

“I definitely had a case of the blues, but I feel better mentally,” she assured her sister. “I’m not crying everyday so that’s great.”

While Jenner admitted she has had bad days mentally, she doesn’t have the same issue with her mummy body, “I don’t have bad days with my body… I feel really good about my body.” 

“I see my body and I love my body and my saggy tits,” she continued. Her new mission? To plan her first night out with friends postpartum.

“I’m embracing my PP body — postpartum,” she quipped. “I can’t wait for my PP drink, my PP body, and we’re gonna PP all the way there on the PP — the private plane.” 

“P**** poppin’, party plane, postpartum — PPPPPP,” she said as her sister laughed.

Jenner’s not the only member of her family who’s been going through it lately. Khloé Kardashian just revealed she had a tumour removed from her face.

Since then, her keen interest in fashion and beauty has landed her gigs as a Digital Content Producer and Beauty Editor with titles like Girlfriend, Refinery29, BEAUTYcrew and beautyheaven. She loves the way seemingly innocuous topics like skin care and style have the ability to put a smile on people’s faces or make them think about themselves a little differently. A big believer in self love and experimentation, Briar has made a point of becoming the Australian beauty industry’s unofficial guinea pig for unusual treatments and daring hair trends. When she’s not testing out the latest beauty launches, Briar is big on broadening her horizons, mostly in the form of food but she’s also partial to travelling to new destinations both near and far (and of course, allocating an extra bag to bring their best beauty offerings home with her).
