During a recent appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show, model Kate Upton opened up about breastfeeding as a new mama.
The two celebs shared stories of hormones, nursing battles and pumping problems. Upton revealed, “The hormones after pregnancy, for me, were crazier than when I was pregnant, and it took forever for them to calm down, like months after breastfeeding.”
Clarkson agreed, adding, “Pumping is the worst!” The pop star/talk show host/mommy told Upton (and her viewers), “I lost my ever-living mind—like I was a crazy person,” she said. “Went in my closet and just collapsed on the floor and was crying, I was like, ‘You have no idea how I had to work for that’.”
The talk show host went on, “And really, there was like nothing in the bottle; I’m crazy. But, literally, it’s just a hormonal period. I don’t think people take that into account, especially when we’re women in the public eye. It is a hard time.”
