Whitney Port has revealed how she was “really, really self-conscious” about having sex with her husband, Tim Rosenman, after the birth of their now-2-year-old son left her with “misshaped” nipples.
The 35-year-old former cast member of “The Hills” was brutally honest during the most recent episode of her motherhood podcast, “With Whit,” saying she was “scared” to be intimate following Sonny’s birth and that she’d consider having surgery to lift her breasts in the future.
While answering questions from fellow mothers, Port said: “I was really, really self-conscious about my boobs and my nipples because they were just engorged and uncomfortable and misshaped and so huge and I always took pride in them.”
“I remembered that being like a bit of an inhibitor to our sex life because I wasn’t fully able to enjoy myself because I was so self-conscious of what he was thinking about my body at that time,” Port continued.
Port also noted that, soon after she finished breastfeeding, the intimacy between her and her husband returned. “Give yourself a little bit of a break,” she noted in the podcast, “you may feel self-conscious about getting back into bed with him, especially if you had a vaginal birth — ‘How does it feel down there?’ ‘Is my squishy belly affecting him and his sex drive?’ … Try not to spiral.”
Port delved into the changes to her body post-birth, saying “My boobs are saggier, the nipples protrude more, I don’t like them … I don’t love them,” although she noted, “There’s nothing wrong with feeling insecure about your body changing after baby.”
And she revealed that her vagina “feels different,” even though her doctor gave her the “husband stitch” after she experienced tearing during birth, noting now that, when she runs or jumps, she feels like she has to use the bathroom.
Port, who returned to “The Hills” for its reunion series last year, said her patience is being tested in quarantine, noting that “It takes a village to raise a child, and, right now, Timmy and I are a very small village. It can be overwhelming, to say the least.”
Last week, Port said Rosenman desperately wants a sibling for Sonny. But after suffering a miscarriage last year, she has mixed feelings about expanding their family.
“He, I know, really really wants a second kid, and I don’t know. That’s where little fractures start to happen,” Port said during a conversation with Alsion Prato on her “Infertile AF” podcast last Wednesday. “You don’t know if [miscarriage] is going to be routine or not, and that’s what’s scary.”
