Eating for two may be one of the greatest joys of pregnancy. But for Mariah Carey, who is expecting twins any day now, the joys of eating for three are pretty much nonexistent. The songstress told Britain’s OK! magazine that eating while 8 months pregnant has pretty much been a chore.
“I haven’t had much of an appetite at all, due to the babies taking up so much room in my belly,” she said. She went on to explain that although she hasn’t felt hungry most days, she manages a sensible eating schedule to keep the babies healthy and happy. “I do make sure I get my daily meals and vitamins, but mainly stick with small portions of fruit and protein,” she said. As for those weird pregnancy cravings, Mariah has had a bit of sweet tooth adding, “Every now and then, I eat a toasted marshmallow for dessert.”
The babies seem to be thriving off of mom’s healthy eating schedule and according to Mariah, they have already begun to show their unique personalities in mom’s belly. “In viewing our ultrasounds, the boy is already like [my husband] Nick, like, ‘Here I am, take my picture, or don’t.’ Our girl is coyly facing the other way, like, ‘No pictures,’ waiting for her proper debut!” said Mariah. We can’t wait for the babies to get here! Mariah is due on May 14th. Are you excited to see Mariah and Nick’s twins?
