Fearne Cotton’s ‘cathartic’ confession

ICONINSIDER — Fearne Cotton found it “very cathartic” writing about her depression.
The 36-year-old star – who has Rex, four, and Honey, two, with her husband Jesse Wood – is glad opening up about her own mental health issues helped others to do the same.
She shared: “Writing about my depression earlier this year was very cathartic and I’ve not regretted it for a second. The number of girls and young women who’ve been in touch with me is incredible.
“Mental-health issues can leave you feeling isolated and that won’t change unless we start talking and listening. I hope future generations are better at dealing with their emotions than we are.”
And Fearne admits her life tends to be a bit more “chaotic” now she has children but she wouldn’t have it any other way.
She added: “Mornings start at 6.30am and tend to be chaotic. We’re a four-kid household, with everyone getting up at different times, wanting different things for breakfast and fighting over the TV. Go back 10 years and I’d have been out getting hammered and going to bed at that time, but now mornings are my favourite part of the day.
“My husband, Jesse, and I embrace the chaos and we’d miss it if it wasn’t there. My life has changed so much in the past decade. Everything used to be focused on work and worrying about how to live; now the focus is on the children. My day works around them.”
Fearne may be married to Jesse, the son of Rolling Stones rocker Ronnie Wood but she insists she just sees the famous musician as part of the family.
She told The Sunday Times magazine: “People make a thing about being related to Ronnie Wood, but, to me, it’s just family. He’s my husband’s dad and our kids’ brilliant grandad. It can be weird, watching him on stage, or talking to Keith Richards after a gig. There is still a bit of me that goes: “Hang on, that’s Keith. It really is Keith.”
