Kate Lawler was scared to tell her fiancé about her postpartum depression

Kate Lawler has bravely opened up on struggling with her mental health after becoming a mum.

The Big Brother star welcomed daughter Noa in February and says she was “afraid” to tell her partner Martin – who she affectionally dubs Boj – about her depression.

She also adds that resented her husband-to-be as he was originally keener on becoming a parent than her.

In a new interview, the radio DJ, 41, admitted that Martin “really wanted to be a dad” and that he was concerned that she would “blame him” during the tough times of parenting.

Sharing that she sometimes did resent her partner after having their baby, she told The Sun: “I definitely had thoughts of resentment, moments where I thought to myself ‘Why did I let him convince me this would be a good idea?'”

Kate added that after Noa arrived she was struggling but kept it to herself, as she continued: “I was afraid to tell him how depressed I was. Having a baby really does put pressure on your relationship.

“But thankfully Boj is nothing like me! He’s so calm and he’s got more patience. He has been my rock.”

Kate went on to add that Martin “has been incredible” since they became parents and that seeing him with their little tot melts her heart.

Kate recently took to her Instagram page to remind new parents that any difficulties they face with their newborn will pass.

“For new Mums and Dads.. There might be days when you feel the lowest you’ve ever felt in your entire life. You may wonder how it’s possible to feel so much regret when you felt so ready to create new life. There will be times you wish you could be the person you were before you gave birth or wonder if you’ll ever be happy again,” Kate told her followers.

“When you can’t stop crying or control the most terrifying, darkest thoughts inside your head…. When you’re on the floor, unable to get up because you feel so broken, or notice feelings of resentment towards a partner who doesn’t have the same amount of responsibility as you…

“When the sleepless nights, the constant fear that something bad might happen to your child, the anguish of not knowing how to stop your baby crying or when you doubt your ability to be a Mum or Dad becomes all too overwhelming….”

Kate then urged readers to remain strong and know that eventually, all the emotions will pass.

She went on: “Just remember, all of this WILL pass. I can’t promise you when but eventually, slowly, day by day, you get a bit more sleep and feel a bit more human again.

“You’ll start to believe in yourself and feel that you ARE capable of doing the hardest job in the world and you’ll begin to trust your instincts when it comes to knowing what your little one wants.”

The mum of one also encouraged new parents to just ‘keep going’ and remember that they will one day ‘smile again’.

“If you’re going through hell, keep going, because one day, those feelings that you believed would never ever escape you, slowly fade away like clouds in the sky making way for sunshine and you’ll begin to smile and laugh again, just as your baby will learn to do the same,” she concluded.

Baby Noa had several trips to the hospital shortly after coming into the world, and Kate was also then subjected to nasty trolling from cruel online critics.
