Halle Bailey is powering through a “severe” period of postpartum depressing following the birth of her baby boy, Halo. The 24-year-old Little Mermaid star got candid in a recent Snapchat video about her experience, noting that this has “nothing to do” with her son, whom she shares with boyfriend DDG.

“I have severe, severe postpartum [depression],” Halle said in the clip last week, according to an Instagram fan account that reshared her post. “And I don’t know if any new moms can relate, but it’s to the point where it’s really bad, and it’s hard for me to be separated from my baby for more than 30 minutes at a time before I start to kind of freak out.”

The Color Purple actress then pointed out that “feeling normal in [her] own body” has “been hard” for her.

“I feel like a completely different person when I look in the mirror,” Halle explained. “I just feel like I’m in a whole new body, and I don’t know who I am. … I didn’t realize how serious of a thing it actually was. Now, going through it, it feels like you’re swimming in this ocean that’s, like, the biggest waves you’ve ever felt, and you’re trying not to drown.”

Despite the difficult physical and mental experience, Halle insisted this “has nothing to do with my baby. It has everything to do with me and who I am right now.”

Later in the clip, the “Angel” artist pointed out that she wanted to share her story after seeing “hurtful” comments about her online.
