There was no post-partum depression or blues for Jennifer Lopez when she birthed twins Max and Emme in 2008. La Lopez says reports that she had the baby blues are media misquotes and greatly exaggerated and removed from context.
Lopez did have the blues for a week after her babies were born, but the ensuing media frenzy suggested otherwise.
She told Redbook, "I remember after the babies were born, about seven to 10 days in, I was like, 'What is going on with me?' I felt sad and depressed and thought the babies didn't love me."
Lopez told Ellen DeGeneres on her namesake show that the story was blown out of proportion.
She said, "I know I'm being misquoted in the press a lot. (They say that) I had depression when I had babies – none of that's true… I had what they called the baby blues, which is when your hormones drop and you get very emotional."
