Country singer LeAnn Rimes says that she wanted to get rehab out of the way before considering motherhood. She revealed in a new interview with “E! News” that she wanted to conquer her demons before approaching the thought of becoming a mother.
She checked herself in for a 30-day treatment program, reportedly to deal with her anxiety and depression. She said that her decision to do so was because she wanted to get that out of the way before starting a family with her husband Eddie Cibrian.
She revealed, “Eddie and I talk about having kids and I would love to be a mom. I didn’t ever want to bring a child into the world without taking care of myself. And that was another reason I decided to go [into treatment].”
She went on to say, “I was America’s sweetheart for so many years, but it was just like everyone turned. No one will ever understand how much thought and hurt were put into our decision. I was incredibly depressed and not quite sure of who I was. People are so quick to judge and make decisions for themselves about situations they know absolutely nothing about.”
