Kylie Jenner is being praised by fans for keeping it real and opening up about her postpartum struggle.
The reality star turned makeup mogul, 25, said that she cried non-stop for weeks after the birth of her son in February of this year.
In a trailer for the latest season of the Kardashians, Kylie says: "I should be really happy right now, I just had this new baby. But I cried non-stop for like three weeks."
Kylie's son, her second child, was born on 2 February, and she shares him with Travis Scott, who is also the father of her first child, Stormi, who was born on February 1, 2018.
While Kylie's son was initially meant to be called Wolf Webster, she later announced that his name had been changed – although she has yet to reveal what to.
She first revealed that she was struggling in the aftermath of the now six-month-old's birth in June, writing on Instagram: "I just want to say to my postpartum moms that postpartum has not been easy. It's not been easy, it's very hard.
"This experience for me, personally, has been a little harder than with my daughter."
She added: "It's not easy mentally, physically, spiritually. It's just been crazy. I didn't want to get back to life without saying that because I think we can look on the internet… and it could look a lot easier for other people, but it hasn't been easy for me.
"Once I realised that – I was putting some pressure on myself – and I just keep reminding myself I made a whole human, a beautiful, healthy boy, and we have to stop putting pressure on ourselves to be back not even physically, just mentally after birth."
Fans were quick to praise the 25-year-old for speaking candidly about her postpartum journey.
Referring to the family's ups and downs in the trailer, one fan wrote: "I like how they just go through so much but still come back stronger as ever."
A second added: "Yes the baby blues I know what she means those first few weeks are brutal my baby is 3 months now and it's easier but I spend the first week or 2 crying at nothing [sic]."
"Glad she is sharing that," wrote a third, while a fourth added: "Postpartum depression is a real thing and can get very dangerous for many reasons... I don't really like the Kardashians but honestly it is nice that they talk about actual struggles that real new mothers go through."
