After Suffering Post-natal Depression, Adele Says the Bravest Thing A Woman Can Do Is Not to Have Children


Adele is known for her honesty and telling it like it is, especially when she's on stage, and now she's opened up about family life and says the bravest thing a woman can do for herself is not to have a child.

Adele, who welcomed her son Angelo in 2012 with her partner Simon Konecki, spoke to Vanity Fair saying that most people have babies because they submit to peer pressure and succumb to other people's expectations.

She said: “I think it’s the bravest thing to not have a child. All my friends and I felt pressurised into having kids because that’s what adults do. I love my son more than anything but on a daily basis, if I have a minute or two, I wish I could do whatever the f*** I wanted.


The British superstar revealed she battled with post-natal depression after giving birth to her son Angelo. Asked if she plans to have another baby, Adele said she didn't think so, explaining:

"I’m too scared. I had really bad postpartum depression after I had my son, and it frightened me... I didn't talk to anyone about it. I was very reluctant.

My knowledge of postpartum or post-natal, as we call it in England, is that you don’t want to be with your child. You’re worried you might hurt your child. You’re worried you weren’t doing a good job."

But it affected her differently, as she says she was "obsessed" with her child, but she thought she had "made the worst decision of her life."
