Witherspoon had “a different experience” after each of her children’s births, she told Jameela Jamil in April 2020 on her “I Weigh” podcast. “[With] one kid, I had kind of mild postpartum, and [with] one kid, I had severe postpartum where I had to take pretty heavy medication because I just wasn’t thinking straight at all,” the actress said during an episode of Jamil’s “I Weigh” podcast. “And then I had one kid where I had no postpartum at all.”
Witherspoon shares daughter Ava and son Deacon with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe, as well as son Tennessee with estranged husband Jim Toth, whom she split from in 2023. After she stopped nursing her little ones, she went through “hormonal roller-coasters” with her PPD battle.
As for Prinsloo, the former Victoria’s Secret Angel received help from her husband, Adam Levine, while battling PPD.
“My husband was so incredibly supportive and always got me out of it,” Prinsloo, who shares three kids with the rocker, said on a June 2019 Today appearance. “I think it’s very normal, though, as a young mom and a new mom to feel helpless and to feel overly emotional, you know.”
The model added, “I think I got lucky not to have it to an extreme case, but you can see yourself spiraling.”
