    Real Housewives of Melbourne’s Jackie Gillies says she’s been ‘crying uncontrollably and suffering from the baby blues’ since welcoming twins


    Real Housewives of Melbourne star Jackie Gillies welcomed twins last month after undergoing a long IVF journey.  

    And now the 41-year-old has admitted she’s been struggling with ‘the baby blues’ since welcoming the little ones. 

    ‘I didn’t know what to expect becoming a new mother. I just thought, “It’s gonna be okay, it’s gonna be easy,” and it’s been far from it,’ she said on her Shine It Up podcast.

    ‘There’s moments that I didn’t expect and that is, I think you’d probably call it the baby blues,’ she continued.

    ‘There would be times where I would cry uncontrollably and I wouldn’t even know why. I thought, “Is it the hormones?”

    ‘I’ve tried so long to have these beautiful babies but now I was starting to suffer a little bit with the baby blues.’

    Jackie also said breastfeeding has become a source of anxiety because she’s found it ‘very challenging’, not to mention the ‘sleep deprivation’ that comes with being a new mum. 

    Hard: 'I didn't know what to expect becoming a new mother. I just thought, "It's gonna be okay, it's gonna be easy," and it's been far from it,' she said on her Shine It Up podcast

    This isn’t the first time the reality star and psychic medium has opened up about struggling with breastfeeding.

    Last week, she said it was ‘one of the hardest things’ she’s ever had to do. 

    She also revealed she finds it difficult to shower and move around after having a C-section, and needs her husband Ben Gillies to help her.

    But despite the challenges, she professed her ‘unconditional love’ for her two babies.

    Feeling blue: 'I've tried so long to have these beautiful babies but now I was starting to suffer a little bit with the baby blues,' Jackie said

    ‘I just kept thinking these babies are so cute,’ she said. ‘Are they actually mine?’ 

    Elsewhere, Jackie revealed she had suffered a miscarriage in the past, which is why she was so private about her IVF journey.

    The celebrity fortune teller took to Instagram last month to share the happy news of the twins’ birth, sharing a photo of the babies’ feet.

    ‘They’re here. OMG they are so cute. My heart is full,’ she wrote in the caption.

    Jackie and Ben, the former drummer for rock band Silverchair, married in 2010 and announced they were expecting in May.
