Famous singer Adele decided to open up about the depression she had experienced following the birth of her child. The star revealed that she actually felt very inadequate and was obsessed with her baby. Adele went through all of this after she welcomed Angelo. And her postpartum depression also made Adele decide not to expand her family.
Adele claimed that she doesn’t want to have another child. The famous singer made all these statements for the December issue of Vanity Fair. Adele said that she was quite scared considering the moments she had been through during that time of her life.
“My knowledge of postpartum – or post-natal, as we call it in England – is that you don’t want to be with your child; you’re worried you might hurt your child; you’re worried you weren’t doing a good job,” Adele said. “But I was obsessed with my child. I felt very inadequate; I felt like I’d made the worst decision of my life.”
The famous singer claimed that she decided to keep all her struggle for herself, so she didn’t talk about the postpartum depression and she didn’t seek treatment to help her deal with it. “I was reluctant,” the singer explained. “My boyfriend said I should talk to other women who were pregnant, and I said, ‘F**k that, I ain’t hanging around with a f**kin’ bunch of mothers.’ Then, without realizing it, I was gravitating towards pregnant women and other women with children, because I found they’re a bit more patient.”
Still, at one point Adele found the help that she needed. The star said that she actually had some conversations with a friend who experienced the same things as she did. This friend helped Adele cope with her condition. Adele also explained that she doesn’t want more children, but her son will have someone to play with, as he actually has a sibling. Adele’s boyfriend has a child from another relationship. He has a daughter who can surely be close to Adele’s son. And Adele seems to be very happy with her family now.
