Kylie Jenner may not be your typical mom—she runs a makeup empire, for starters—but that doesn’t mean she’s immune to the struggles parents go through with a newborn at home. On the fifth episode of the second season of Hulu’s The Kardashians, Jenner confessed to her sister Kendall that after welcoming a (name-not-yet-revealed) son with Travis Scott, she was not only exhausted, but also feeling the “baby blues,” the colloquial nickname given to hormonal imbalances after birth.
“It’s been really hard for me… I cried nonstop all day for the first three weeks,” the mom of two tells her sister in a scene early in the episode. “It’s just the baby blues, and then it kind of goes away… I cried every day for like three weeks. To the point where I’d be laying in bed and my head would just hurt so bad.”
In a to-camera, Jenner shares what she’s learned through research and her own experiences. “I’m not a doctor, but I read on Google: they call it baby blues when it doesn’t last past six weeks [post-partum]. And after about six weeks I started to feel better. But I definitely had a case of the blues.” The implication is that were her symptoms to last longer, we’d be getting into depression territory. Thankfully, that doesn’t seem to be the case with Kylie.
“I don’t have bad days with my body, I have bad days, like, mentally,” Jenner continues telling Kendall, who is trying to get her to come to Vegas for an event. Spoiler: Kylie says she will go and keep her coat on the whole time, and then decides to skip it; her spot on the plane is taken by Hailey Bieber, who seems to have a nice time!
This isn’t totally unexpected. Back in March, Kylie Jenner opened up about her postpartum struggles, revealing that despite the pressure to get “back” she was feeling better and on the mend, mentally.
