GWYNETH PALTROW

Her challenge: Postpartum depression, miscarriage
After delivering son Moses in 2006, the actress "felt like a zombie" she told Good Housekeeping. "I couldn't connect [to Moses]. I just thought it meant I was a terrible mother." When Coldplay frontman hubby Chris Martin suspected postpartum depression, Paltrow, whose daughter, Apple, was born in 2004, finally sought help and soon recovered. Fast-forward to 2013: Without providing a timeline, the actress revealed to the Mail on Sunday's You magazine she had suffered a miscarriage. "I had a really bad experience ... It didn't work out and I nearly died."
