Gwyneth Paltrow Talks About Her Father and Postpartum Depression

Gwyneth Paltrow Feared She'd Love Son as Much as Her Father

Gwyneth Paltrow may play the Country Strong role, but offscreen she's a strong woman. Still, the accomplished actress, mother, author, daughter, and wife says she hasn't recovered from the death of her dad. In an interview for Good Housekeeping's February issue, the 38-year-old was candid about her feelings for her father, Bruce Paltrow, who died in 2002. She said, "He died eight years ago, but it's like it just happened. They say losing someone gets easier with time. I don't think that's true."

The 38-year-old mom of two has long talked openly about her battle with postpartum depression following the birth of her son Moses in 2006. She said she attributes some of those emotions to "fear of loving a little boy as much as I loved my dad and more."
