Whitney Port Shares Pain of Raising Her Son After Losing Her Father to Cancer
Whitney Port is continuing to open up about the difficulties of parenting.
The Hills alum, who had her son Sonny Sanford in July 2017, is having a difficult time raising her son without her father.
The former reality star’s father Jeffrey passed away from kidney cancer in March 2013.
In a new video from her series, “I Love My Baby But…,” the mother of one gets emotional as she describes the pain she still feels after losing her father.
“It has been a traumatic and grief filled world for me for so many reasons. Simply put, he was my dad,” she shared.
“He was the main man in my life for almost all of my life and really ruled at it. I miss him every single day.”
The 32-year-old welcomed her son with husband Tim Rosenman, who she married in 2015.
“More recently, really since Sonny was born, I find myself missing him more and more,” she continued through tears.
“It’s unfortunate how such amazing times in one's life, like getting married or having a baby, can be colored with such darkness.”
And, despite being so happy with her new baby, she can’t help but feel sad at times.
“We are so happy but then quickly feel the loss of their presence and it’s really hard to come to terms with.”
Whit has been extremely open when it comes to sharing the difficulties of motherhood.
Shortly after giving birth, the fashion designer described the pain of breastfeeding with her followers.
“It just started to get so incredibly painful,” she shared in another vlog.
“And we came home and I just hit a breaking point and said, ‘I can’t do this. It feels as though someone is slicing my nipples with glass.’”
She continued, “It’s painful and uncomfortable. And along with having to take care of a newborn, you also have a whole other situation to take care of.”
We’re proud of you for being so honest, Whitney!
