She has now addressed whether it will affect her in the future, telling Marie Claire: “I would definitely adopt or have foster children, but I loved being pregnant.”
Teigen added: “Maybe I should be scared [of having PPD again], but I don’t know. It couldn’t be any worse than it was, could it?”
She revealed she suffered postnatal depression in the open letter published in March 2017.
“I had everything I needed to be happy and yet, for much of the last year, I felt unhappy,” she wrote at the time.
“I just didn’t think it could happen to me. I have a great life. I have all the help I could need: John, my mother (who lives with us), a nanny.
“But postpartum does not discriminate. I couldn’t control it.”
Legend has previously opened up about how he supported his wife through it.
“For me as a husband, it was my job to do the best I could to support her and understand what she was going through and do whatever I could do to help her,” he told PEOPLE in March 2017.
“I feel like that’s the least I could do.”
