Katharine McPhee told Katherine Schwarzenegger about the struggle she had “psychically” with her body while pregnant with her son Rennie.

It’s not all magical motherhood; Katharine McPhee spoke candidly about some of the struggles she faced “psychologically” during her pregnancy with son Rennie, 11 months, especially with her changing body. Speaking to Katherine Schwarzenegger on her Instagram Live series Before, While and After, Katharine opened up about the experience, sharing, “It played with my mind a bit.”

Katharine got real about pregnancy while a guest on Katherine’s show on Thursday 17th February. The actress and singer, who has been open about her struggles with bulimia and eating disorders in the past, revealed that she was initially terrified of gaining weight. “Even though you know your body is going to change, and you expect that if you’re someone who has control issues with your body… psychologically, it’s just doing something different…” she shared.

Although Katharine’s heart was always with her baby, the rapid changes of the pregnancy brought back some disordered mindsets. “I lost control and I went back to this old disordered version of myself, which was upsetting because I just wanted to enjoy my baby,” she told Katherine.

Finally, Katharine found a way to make peace with her body and her baby: to find self-love. “I had a really hard time during that first trimester. It was hard for me to find that self-love, self-esteem. But then I found it later, and I think how I found it… is something I’ll carry with me now,” she recalls.
