Following the December 2014 birth of her daughter Kaya, Hayden Panettiere opened up about her personal battle with post-partum depression. Afterward, she checked herself in for treatment so that she could get some help. Her rep said at the time, “Hayden Panettiere is voluntarily seeking professional help at a treatment center as she is currently battling postpartum depression. She asks that the media respect her privacy at this time.
Her “Nashville” co-star Riley Smith shared an update her during a recent event. He and his fellow ABC stars went to the 2015 CMAs on Wednesday when he was asked about how Hayden is doing.
He said, “Good. I texted her, and wished her well. She texted me right back and said, ‘I’m awesome, thanks.’ So hopefully she will be back on the set soon.”
In September, the actress talked to Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan on their morning show about postpartum depression. She said, “It’s something a lot of women experience. When you’re told about postpartum depression you think it’s ‘I feel negative feelings towards me child, I want to injure or hurt my child.’ I’ve never, ever had those feelings. Some women do. But you don’t realize how broad of a spectrum you can really experience that on. It’s something that needs to be talked about. Women need to know that they’re not alone, and that it does heal.”
