Maren Morris opened up about postpartum depression and said her husband Ryan Hurd diagnosed her.
In March 2020, she and her husband, fellow artist Ryan Hurd welcomed their son, Hayes Andrew.
Morris said it was after her son’s birth that she began experiencing challenges with her mental health. Her depression started to ease up when Hayes was about six months old, she explains, and therapy and the support of Hurd helped her make her way through it.
She said,” I do check-ins all the time with therapy, which I’ve done for years, and my husband was a huge help diagnosing that too.”
She also said, “Sometimes it’s just someone really close to you saying, ‘Are you OK?’ It’s so simple, but it kind of snaps you out of whatever fog you’re in that you think is normal but isn’t.”
