The ups and downs of motherhood

The 45-year-old mum, who has two other children with rapper husband, Mario ‘Souleye’ Treadway – eight-year-old son Ever Imre and three-year-old Onyx Solace – has been vocal about the realities of becoming a mum.

She spoke publicly about suffering postnatal depression after suffering with the health condition following the birth of her two older children, and is confident she can keep the blues away with her third child.

“I had postpartum depression both times, both kids, just basically feels like tar had taken over my whole body and I was just underwater and I kept having that image of wanting to get above the wave,” she has revealed.

“First time around I didn’t seek help for a year and four months … and the second time I waited four months. This time around I am not even waiting four minutes, I am going to be like, ‘OK, everybody, even if I say I am OK, I want you to resist believing me.'”
