Fox News host Megyn Kelly spoke with parents from across the country on Sunday about what they’ve been going through and what it’s like to become parents.
Kelly began by sharing a story from her daughter, whose mother died during childbirth.
“It was the first time I had a child and it was a very hard day,” she said.
“I didn’t know what was going to happen and I was so scared.
My daughter was crying all the time.
I just had to get through it.
I was crying every single day for two months.”
Kelly said she knew what her daughter had been going to be like as a young woman.
“The things I told my daughter were that I would have loved her more than anything in the world,” Kelly said.
“I don’t want to sound like a broken record, but I have a baby and I’m pregnant.
So I feel like that was my responsibility to my daughter, to her.”
She said that, while the experience of becoming a mother has been difficult, the best thing she’s done so far has been to teach her daughter the importance of being mindful of her body and the consequences of not being able to be at her best.
Kelly said the challenges have been particularly challenging in the wake of President Donald Trump’s executive order banning travel to the United States by people from seven Muslim-majority countries, including Iran.
She said the order had “really made it harder for me to sleep and to be able to talk to my kids.
I’m so grateful that my family was able to have this sanctuary and have this support.””
I know I have to be strong and to hold on to what I have, but if I do it at my own pace, I can get through this.”
