Mariah Carey admits that she’s having some snack attacks and that with all the pregnancy weight gain, she can only fit into her pajamas!
Ah, the woes of pregnancy! Mariah Carey, 41, who finally revealed that she is expecting a baby with husband Nick Cannon this spring, has started to experience some pregnancy cravings! Mariah tells Us Weekly that she has developed a taste for roasted red peppers, “I haven’t had them in so long!” But Nick, 30, reveals that his wife has been craving Mickey D’s! “I think I have probably more cravings that she does,” he says. “We order McDonald’s in the middle of the night, so we have to find a 24-hour one. She likes a cheeseburger and fries, and I always want a milkshake.”
Mariah admits that her body has changed, but knows it is due to the baby weight and hormones — not the cheeseburgers and french fries! “I’m looking forward to working out again,” she says. “The progesterone [that she took in to help boost her fertility] makes you really, really bloated and super-ugh feeling.”
The diva has had to give up her typical curve-hugging wardrobe for some clothes that fit her new bumpalicious body! “I’ve definitely changed my way of dressing a lot! Nothing fits right now, so around the house I wear pajamas,” Mariah admits. “I have three sets of the same pair: It’s like a little dress and these long, loose pants.” But baggy PJs aren’t all Mariah needs to stay comfortable! “I’m constantly wearing a bra,” she exclaims. “TMI! But it’s true. I need it for comfort.”
But while Mariah is dealing with the weight gain and change of wardrobe, she admits the thing she’s most concerned about is actually giving birth! “I’m very scared,” she says. “I look at those people who give birth in the water, because that’s the most comfortable place, but there’s no way I would do that. The other thing is privacy. How do you have privacy in a hospital? I have to scope it out. I have a friend who just had a baby and she had a whole suite. I’ll need to explore that!”
Well, some things never change — once a diva, always a diva!
