Halle Bailey reveals battle with postpartum depression

Halle Bailey has opened up about her battle with postpartum depression.

The actress/singer has revealed she has suffered from "severe" postpartum depression since secretly welcoming her son Halo in January.

"I just wanted to speak a little bit about my postpartum journey as a new mom," Halle said in a Snapchat video. "I have severe, severe postpartum (depression), and I don't know if any new moms can relate, but it's to the point where it's really bad, and it's hard for me to be separated from my baby for more than 30 minutes at a time before I start to kind of freak out."

Halle shares her son with her boyfriend, 26-year-old rapper DDG, real name Darryl Dwayne Granberry Jr.

"Moo Moo is just the perfect dad to him. He loves him so much; he's so present," Halle said of DDG. "And I couldn't have asked for a better person to have a baby with because of how present he is and how much he wants to be in his life, and how supportive he is of me and my ventures."

The Little Mermaid star went on to explain that she feels "completely different" since giving birth.

"When I look at him, I cry because of how special he is," she shared. "The only thing that's been hard for me is feeling normal in my own body. I feel like a completely different person when I look in the mirror. I just feel like I'm in a whole new body, and I don't know who I am."

She continued, "It has nothing to do with my baby. It has everything to do with me and who I am right now. I guess today I was just triggered - especially (since) social media is just not a good thing to be on when you have postpartum - but I was just really triggered today, especially by seeing some of the things that have been said about me and my family, and the one that I love and the ones that I love."

Halle's video came shortly after her rep quashed rumours that she and DDG had split after unfollowing each other on Instagram.
