Diana Zubiri admits falling into postpartum depression after giving birth to youngest daughter

Diana Zubiri admitted that she fell into postpartum depression after giving birth to her youngest daughter, Baby Amira.

According to Lhar Santiago's report on "24 Oras," the actress and the baby had to go under quarantine for two weeks after coming out of the hospital.

Diana said she struggled to cope with it, knowing that she was the only one there to take care of her daughter.

"Parang feeling ko hindi ko kaya, feeling ko pasan ko ang daigdig," she said. "Pero worth it naman siya. Parang looking back, parang iniisip ko mukha pala akong tanga nun, iiyak-iyak pa ko."

Many were surprised when the actress announced that she has given birth, as she had not previously revealed her pregnancy.

Diana said she felt shy about disclosing it to the public, as she was on bed rest and not particularly feeling up to talking to people.

"Kumbaga parang wala sa plano ko sa makipagsabayan pa nung lockdown na i-announce because I wasn't feeling well talaga," she said.

When she was already due, Diana said she felt afraid to give birth amid the coronavirus pandemic.

"S'yempre unang una hindi ko kasama si Andy [Smith], tapos s'yempre baka makakuha kami ng sakit," she said. "Doble-doble na lang po 'yung pag-iingat."

For now, Diana will not be accepting showbiz work to focus on caring for her newborn child, who is always awake in the wee hours of the morning but sleeps throughout the day.

"Kamukhang-kamukha po siya ni Andy, mukha siyang boy pero ang kanyang pangalan ay Amira which means princess," she said. —MGP, GMA News
