Mariah Carey on Pregnancy Cravings: ‘I’m Just About Fruit’

11/30/2010 at 03:00 PM ET
Marion Curtis/Startraks

Forget pickles and ice cream — Mariah Carey is sticking to healthy snacks when it comes to pregnancy cravings.

“My taste bud situation is unparalleled,” the expectant singer, 41, tells Extra. “I don’t know what it is, but I’m just about fruit for some reason.”

That said, she won’t accept just anything that falls off the tree. “It has to be really good for me to like it,” she says.

Other side effects of pregnancy include expanding in more places than just her belly.

“My fingers obviously swelled a little bit,” she says. “I can’t even get this ring off if I tried.”

The impending birth will even affect their holiday plans. Carey said she and her husband Nick Cannon usually go to Aspen, but will skip it in 2010.

“I can’t go there this year because of the altitude,” she explained. “We’re figuring it out. Looking at different options.”

While Carey is open about her new favorite food, she’s not prepared to share certain other details — including confirming raging rumors she’s expecting twins.

“I’m not telling anyone,” she insists.

missy on

who cares if she preggers with twins she has a fruity husband anyway so what if she does have twins that means she have three kids to take of

Lola on

Fruit = healthy, but BORING…. Live it up, Mimi!

Addison on

You people are so negative. If you don’t care what she eats, move on to another story and take your nasty negative comments with you.

Anonymous on

Considering her age and this could be her first and last pregnancy Mariah should experience everything wonderful about carrying a child, and along with this comes all the cravings and she shouldn’t limit herself because she would then not be experiencing everything.

MasapequaSusie on

Best wishes…buckle your seatbelt-it will be an amazing trip! Enjoy being a Mom.xxx

cassi on

There is no need to bad mouth the women….Some people are just haters

MasapequaSusie on

Congratulations! Very warm wishes to you & Nick – buckle your seatbelt – this is an amazing ride!

Jennifer on

Good for her! With my daughter, I craved sweets. With my son, Cheeseburgers. I only gained 25 lbs with each pregancy, but the cravings were far from healthy! I was like, “Bring on the Five Guys!” lol!

Cooper on

Addison: I agree.

Anonymous on

Glad she is finally eating fruit! Yeah just your fingers are swollen, lol.

MAESMUM on

Well said Addison. And congrats to Mariah and Nick for keeping their pregnancy private. After all, they are the parents of this baby and no one needs to know any of their info unless they want it to be told. I hope she is enjoying every minute of this pregnancy. Motherhood is awesome, Mariah…congrats again to you and Nick!

gdfg on

Missy, do you know Mariah and Nick personally? Oh, and I take it from your poor grammar that you are probably a child, so I hope people won’t react too nastily to your negative comments.

Cynthia on

Addison, I agree with you 100%.

tlm on

No need for nasty comments. I never understand why people do that. You have no manners or you’re just obnoxious jerks? If you don’t have anything worth putting on paper …. just skip to the next story. I wish them the best and know their baby will be a loved and welcomed little guy.

Leslee on

She is pregnant with twins I haven’t more than a shred of doubt. It seems she will follow in Jennifer Lopez’s footsteps and wait until she is about to explode before she confirms that fact.

She has referred to her unborn as “they” so she might as well just share. It’s ok to keep it to yourself, but really then, just keep it to yourself.

She was on QVC or some channel of that sort promoting her fragrance line the other day and was all but laying on the couch, literally. I doubt she is going to be very pleasant if she goes to term.

I hope they have healthy babies and all goes well.

crzygirl407 on

am I the only one who likes chubby mariah better than skinny mariah? at first I thought wow she’s letting herself go but then when I found out why her weight was going up and down like that she looks great!

Lisa on

It may be twins, or she may not know the sex of the baby. I know when I was pregnant I often refered to my baby as “they” because you can’t say “he” or “she” and “it” just sounds wrong. Either way, congratulations!

Jennifer M. on

Craving fruit = a girl!! Esp. if it’s citrus!!

Vera on

Good for her for having healthy pregnancy cravings. When I was pregnant, I craved everything BUT fruit.

L on

She is certainly having fun keeping things a secret!

Courtney on

Congratulations, Mariah! My hunch is that she’s having a girl beacuse when I was pregnant all I craved was fruit – primarily oranges! They say that when you crave fruit you are having a little girl :) We’ll see! Either way a baby is a wonderful thing no matter the gender or what you are craving!

Lori on

I craved citrus. I could not get enough oranges. Strawberries as well. I had two boys. So one never knows. Heres to a happy healthy life for all involved!

Susan Lewis on

Whether it’s one or two, or five; good luck, God bless

jadesmommy on

I craved fruit and water with my daughter and when I found out at month 5 what we were having I was 20 lbs below my pre pregnancy weight! I always say that was the best “diet” I’ve ever been on! Good for her for craving fruit!

Dawn on

How nice for her that her cravings are healthy and low cal, not the case with my pregnancies. I had a single pregnancy and a twin pregnancy and they were very much the same. I gained the same amount of weight with both, only real diff was the fact that I was showing a lot sooner with the twins. Her not denying twins does sound fishy, but either way I wish them nothing but the best and I think they will have beautiful babies.

Lola on

Come on, Mariah…it’s clear to see that it wasn’t JUST your fingers that swelled…

Lou Lou on

NICK & MARIAH YOU HAVE A NICE LIFE AND DO NOT WORRY ABOUT WHAT PEOPLE WILL SAY YOU CAN’T PLEASE PEOPLE NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO.

TO MISSY THAT WAS NOT NICE AT ALL TO SAY, MIND YOUR BUSINESS.

I AGREE WITH YOU ALSO ADDISON.

Lola on

Courtney: not to be mean or anything, but you shouldn’t call it “the gender” – it’s the sex of the baby. The sex is the biological make up of a human, while gender is masculine or feminine (ie, characteristics), which is more of a social role. Other than that, I found your post to be quite nice! Always good to learn something new though.. ;)

BB on

As a mother of TWINS that sounds like a twin pregnancy to me! I craved fruit FRANTICALLY. I asked the OB why, and he explained it’s due to the cervix. Just like any other muscle, it gets tired…and holding up multiples is exhausting. It’s equivalent to sprinting 24/7. So your body craves more & more & MORE fulid. Apparently, many women who carry multiples crave fruit & any other food that is full of water.

sistasmile on

I have one of each & never craved fruit. At least she’s craving something healthy!

Lori O. on

I love Mariah, but could she be any more stuck up and high class about it? She’s pregnant, YES, but, godness, you swear she was giving birth to a prince… She needs to get over herself.

Xio on

you guys act like she WANTS to crave fruit .. lmao Do you mimi!

Courtney on

Lola: Wow, thank you so much for that lesson … completely necessary and not a ridiculous comment to make at all! ;) Hope that made you feel more intelligent.

Mbejar on

I craved fruit for the first trimester and halfway through the second. I had a big baby but he still loves fruit! As for the person who said live it up! The baby wants fruit for now! :)

Gigohead on

Congrats to Mimi and Nick. Only wish them the very best. She waited a long time to make this work for her. She was looking very round on HSN last night. But she is allowed to be voluptuous! That’s the best part of being preggo!!

Lola on

Courtney: Aww, my thoughts exactly! Lucky for me, I accidentally refreshed the page and saw how quickly you responded. Thanks for taking it the right way – you have no idea how defensive people can be on here! Here’s to strong, intelligent women everywhere! And to the bundle(s) of joy that will soon be in the arms of Mariah and Nick!

julymoon on

Don’t know about the fruit thing making it a girl I didnt crave junk food at all! I craved pineapple cottage cheese, and strawberries. I had a boy. I remember my Doctor even telling me that my cravings weren’t the norm.

J on

tlm, probably the same rason you felt the need to comment on posts you don’t like. :)

Karen on

I believe that cravings can determine the sex of the baby. “Sugar and spice and all things nice” for girls and “Snips and snails and puppy dog tails” for boys, as the old saying goes. I craved sugar with my two girls and fruit with my two boys!!

J on

Agreed Courtney.

Lola on

Courtney and Lola: To be fair, I have to agree with Lola – I never once heard a doctor say “would you like to know the gender of the baby?” hahaha, but now that i think of it, it would be pretty cool to know the baby’s personality beforehand! LOVE Mariah and Nick! Can’t wait to see how cute their baby will be!

D on

Well, her fingers AREN’T the only things that are swelling up!

Lola on

OMG! I totally wrote that my name was LOLA! Hahahaha, the above comment is mine y’all! Totally agree with Lola – so much, that I even took her name! Sorry, girl!

shardelle talley on

CONGRATULATIONS MARIAH & NICK,A BABY IS A BEAUTIFUL BLESSING.

Stacia on

Congratulations to Mariah & Nick!!!! Hope she is having twins- I have boy/girl twins and craved nothing but melon- couldn’t get enough cantaloupe, honeydew or watermelon- was very difficult to find in the winter in New England- hope they are on the West Coast for the Farmer’s markets!!!

mo on

I wish them much happiness! I do thank she is having twins, though. It doesn’t matter if she tells or not, we’ll find out soon enough!

frid on

She is HUGE!! So I don’t believe that her only craving is fruit…. I hope when she becomes a mom she understands that she is no longer the most “important” person in this world. Goodluck to her and that guy she’s married to.

Allie on

Sorry Mariah, but you wouldn’t be so huge if you were only craving fruit. I ate allot more than fruit when I was preggers and I got huge like you.

Maggie on

What a joke that Mariah wants to be a Mother. She won’t take care of the baby at all. She has a full time nanny who will do it all except give birth. What a shame when there are women out there that can’t even get pregnant and want to have a biological child……What is Mariah going to do with her baby, absolutely NOTHING!!!!

ghost on

she is a shallow person. Can’t stand her. BRRRR

Mel on

OMG she was a cow before she got pregnant! I honestly hope she doesn’t wear all her hoochie mama stuff after becoming a mother and tones down the skin tight stuff. Not that a mom can’t be sexy, they can, but stuffing your body into something 2 sizes too small like a sausage into casing just isn’t sexy or the least bit attractive. Serously, Mariah, just get a clue.

Deb on

Must be twins….why else would she say “I’m not saying”….please.. she also must be watching her weight with the “craving fruit” BS. She is gonna blow up like a tick!

Melissa on

Ok, while Mariah isn’t my favorite celebrity, I still wouldn’t want to bash her for deciding to have children. A lot of people are saying she wouldn’t be a good mother, but honestly, even though I’ve never met her, and I doubt most people on here have met her, how would you know how she would act as a mother? Maybe the pregnancy will make her a better person, you never know. Good luck,Mariah.

meme on

when my sister was pregnant, fruits and veggies were pretty much the only thing she could keep down. she tried hard to pig out but my nephew wasn’t having it lol. but, even though she didn’t get to eat whatever she wanted, there’s no denying fruits and veggies are healthier and she didn’t gain much, if any, pregnancy weight. congrats to mariah and nick and may they have a healthy child or children!

hayley w on

maggie- what a nasty person you must be make such a horrid little comment…wonders what your kids doing while you bash fellow mummy? hmmmmmm *mine are in bed in case your wondering *

ghost – then why on earth spend time posting…….why not find someone you like and post on them

Mel- hmm maybe you should get a clue, you sound mean and nasty and a teeennnnny bit jealous x there is a large gap between not a fan or her dress sense and she’s a cow…

mummy haters arn’t very nice are they , they are like litle school grund bullys just puting others down to either make themself feel good or like the sound of their own voice sooo much they just talk shizzzzz

I hope she has an easy time xx mind you i had healthy ‘wantings’ when i was pregnant and then around month 6 the sweeeeets omg i ate like they were going out of style :) my baby was on a perm sugar high lol :)

Janice Pielert on

I am so happy for Mariah and Nick. Their dreams are coming true and they deserve every happiness. I hope and pray that the pregnancy goes on without a hitch and that however many babies they have will be born healthy and happy.

gary on

the negativity of some people is unreal. haters and jealous people. who is anybody to say Mariah is a bitch and will not make a good mother. she has always been involved with kids charities and loves childeren.she is a kind and lovely woman. good luck Mariah xx

Melanie on

I think she may be further along. I remember that there are certain months that you are not allowed to travel in a plane., but I can’t remember.

Anonymous on

What does altitude have to do with her pregnancy and traveling? People in Aspen get pregnant and have babies at high altitude all the time!

Genuine on

BEST WISHES to Mariah and Nick on the pregnancy; and I hope all goes well.

Jen on

Is it true she cannot go to Aspen because of the altitude? Considering pregnant women have higher blood volume I wouldn’t think it would be a problem.

Colleen on

I’m happy for them. I craved fruit BIG time with both of my pregnancies and I have 2 boys….I wonder if they are expecting a boy. I would sit and eat 1/2 a watermelon, it was crazy lol! Better than cake though.

Rose on

I don’t understand the big secret some celebrities try to make of whether they’re having twins. Of course I shouldn’t be surprised since Mariah and Nick have acted completely ridiculous about this pregnancy thing from the very beginning with the way they’ve tried to string the public along to get more attention – pretending like they want to keep things private while at the same time dropping constant hints that she was pregnant. They need to get over themselves because this whole act of wanting privacy WHILE dropping a million little hints about what’s going on is getting old. It’s pathetic to see two grown adults acting like this.

klutzy_girl on

I think the fact that she’s not saying anything about whether she’s having twins does in fact confirms that she’s having twins!

MARIA on

MARIAH CONGRADULATIONS TO U AND THE COMMENTS GIVING HERE ARE NOT NECESSARY IN THAT SHE IS OLD AND THAT SHE WILL BE HAVING TWINS NONE OF THIS IS NONE OF OUR BUSINESS AND THE COMMENTS THAT ARE BEING MADE ARE VERY RUDE TOWARDS TO THE EXPECTANT MOTHER TO BE IF THE ROLE WERE REVERSE WOULD YOU LIKE SUCH COMMENTS BEING MADE TO YOU . NO CERTAINLY NOT PLEASE BE SENSITIVE AND RESPECT ONE PRIVACY I AM SHOCKED THAT THIS IS COMING FROM MOTHERS AND WOMENS MOUTHS BEING THAT WE ARE WOMAN AND THAT WE SHOULD
SUPPORT ONE ANOTHER IN SUCH A BEAUTIFUL MOMENT IN A WOMEN LIFE NO MATTER WHAT AGE PLEASE WOMEN BE WOMEN NOT ENEMIES TO ONE ANOTHER WE ALL FOLLOW THE SAME PATH TO WOMANHOOD AND SISTERHOOD IS WHAT YOU WANT TO TEACH YOUR DAUGHTERS AFTER ALL MARIAH CAREY IS A WOMAN EVEN THOUGH SHE IS A CELEBRITY SHE A WOMAN FIRST A DAUGHTER A SISTER A FRIEND AND NOW SOON TO BE A MOTHER DO NOT DISTURB THE PEACE OF A MOTHER TO BE THANK YOU THINK BEFORE U SPEAK

adriana on

Get that ring off now, before you have to go to the ER to have it cut off

TM on

That’s a good point, Adriana! My wedding band got stuck on my finger when I was pregnant and I almost had to go to the ER. Luckily my husband was able to suck it off. That sounds bad, but that is what it took to get the ring off!

I’m so glad that Mariah will finally be able to experience motherhood! I just know that her baby will be beautiful!

Alex on

Does anybody know how far along she is, or when she’s due?

abbyc on

Sorry but if she’s really eating loads of fruit it must be drizzled in chocolate and whipped cream. It cracks me up when people use pregnancy as an excuse to eat whatever they want and put on a ridiculous amt of weight.

Debbie on

Congratulations Mariah and Nick…you will be fabulous parents!

Shannon on

So twins it is! lol

Congrats Mimi and Nick!

Tee on

Like every other person in the world, Mariah Carey is entitled to her privacy. If she chooses to keep facts about her pregnancy to herself, than that’s her right.

That having been said, I will say that I do NOT understand why somebody in the public eye chooses to “tease” the public with tidbits of information. I do not listen to the type of music that this woman sings so I do not know anything about her or her husband. I’m just speaking more in general terms.

I don’t think it’s right for a celebrity to constantly drop hints about things to the public and then complain that they don’t have privacy. If she is having twins, I honestly don’t understand why she would choose not to confirm that. By not answering a simple question, it seems like she is choosing to surround herself with drama.

Again, I don’t know anything about this particular couple. I’m just speaking more in general terms.

Lola, seriously? Your comment to Courtney was rude and makes you seem like you enjoy stirring up drama too.

nana on

I love Nick…he is one funnyyy guy…I think he and Mariah are really cute together..even though she always looks somehow big comparing to him..:))

Raquel on

she looks so pretty…i’m so happy for her..

Jennifer on

Can’t go to Aspen because of the altitude? LAME.

CelebBabyLover on

Tee- What’s wrong with her wanting to keep it private that she’s having twins (if she is)? I’m not meaning to critcize you, I assure you!

Anyway, moving on to other comments…..Could some please share a link to a photo where Mariah looks huge? In the picture posted in the last Mariah thread (the one of her taping a TV appearence) she doesn’t even look pregnant! And even if she IS huge…..Every woman handles pregnancy differently. Some women get huge even if they eat healthily. And if Mariah really is having twins, of course she’s going to be fairly large!

Aspen on

Watermelon hit the spot with my 3rd. You can’t go wrong with somewhere balmy and fresh for vacation 2010…..
Blessings to Mariah and Nick…

CelebBabyLover on

I also meant to say that I don’t blame Mariah a bit for gushing so much about this pregnancy, nor do I think it’s wrong that she does. I mean, the woman’s been through quite a lot to have a baby, from what I understand. She’s mentioned that she had a miscarriage a couple of years ago, and given her age, she’s probably had fertility issues as well. Given all that, I’d say she’s more than earned the right to gush about her pregnancy!

CelebBabyLover on

Jennifer- How is that lame? Maybe Mariah’s doctor told her not to go because of the altitude. Maybe they’re just being cautious because of her previous miscarriage, maybe she’s further along than we think, or maybe she has some minor complications that we don’t know about (some high blood pressure, for example).

Robin on

To Mariah and Nick..God bless you and your baby or babies. I pray that you have a blessed pregnancy and a healthy birth.

Mira on

Haha, I also find her claim that she craves only fruit quite funny, given her very obvious and significant weight gain. Plus, what’s with “the fruit needs to be the best” line? Who is she, the queen of Egypt? Are the fruit lining up to audition for the right to be devoured by Mariah. That woman is so unintentionally hilarious.

Sindy on

You are a bunch of CATTY, NASTY, FEMALE DOGS! She is pregnant, happy and really, unless you live at HER house, STFU! I wish you all the best and I craved fruit like crazy with my girls! As far as her age goes, do you know that in Asia they can concieve later in life, she isn’t old for F sakes, you WOMEN are nasty! If you don’t like Mariah or Nick, MOVE ON! Keep your rude, jealous comments to yourself. The reason women have no self esteem is not from men, it’s from you other women who never have anything nice to say..we will never advance and get over our issues because of other women! You who were rude, you should be ashamed of yourselves!!!!

CelebBabyLover on

Okay, I’ve searched both PEOPLE and Google, and I still haven’t found a picture of Mariah’s “huge” baby bump. Why is everyone saying she’s huge?

claire on

she’s into fruit alright, she’s bananas

Tee on

Celebbabylover, I know you’re not critizing me! You always leave very polite comments here and I never mind elaborating on my opinion for somebody if they aren’t rude towards me! There isn’t anything really wrong with her wanting to not share if she’s carrying twins. Like I said, she has the right to privacy. What bothers me is that it seems like she is “baiting” her fans. I have a hard time believing that she simply had a slip of the tongue when she said the word “they.” She constantly dropped hints about being pregnant before she finally confirmed the news. Now it seems like she is dropping hints about carrying twins but again, she won’t confirm it. I don’t like anyone that teases people with information. (celebrity or otherwise!) And since I don’t listen to her music or enjoy that type of music at all, I am certainly not a fan. I don’t have anything against her because I don’t know anything about her. I just don’t like the way she is teasing her real fans.

KAYLA on

Did any of you watch the actual video of her for Extra? She is so full of B.S. it REEKS! She states that she tried to keep the pregnancy private but “people don’t respect her”…who is she kidding? SHE announced it – no one TOLD her to. Look at Isla Fisher – we don’t even know what the sex of her child is! Also, if it’s only fruits she craves, must be artificial fruit pounded with sugar because fruits don’t make you as huge as she is. And no one better tell me it’s “just pregnancy”. I know plenty of women who didn’t bloat up or show hardly during their pregnancy. Mariah is ridiculous and honestly needs to fall off the face of the Earth.

If anyone has a problem with my opinion, deal with it. I dealt with all of your opinions.

alise on

Admission by omission, she’s having twins! What’s the big deal.

CCK3 on

I don’t think cravings have anything to do with the gender of the baby you’re carrying. I craved and ate 6 large oranges each day for my 2nd and 3rd trimesters and I had a boy.

Nella on

First I would like to congratulate Mariah and Nick on their baby or babies. To be honest she doesn’t owe it to the world to tell whether she’s having twins or not. She confirmed the pregnancy and that’s that. If they want to keep some details of the pregnancy private then they should. I hope motherhood changes Mariah for the better, and for people to assume that she won’t be a good mother because of her diva attitude is very judgemental.

Also, I can’t believe some posts are allowed on here such as Mel’s. Wow! How incredibly rude and childish spoken!! It’s rude to call any person a cow!! My sister gained lot of weight in her pregnancy even though she ate a lot of fruit, her body just worked that way. She was very swollen and had so much water weight, so I think that’s entirely up to each individual’s metabollism as well.

kazumi on

whatever she wants to do, then so be it, it is her life. it is best to be healthy than be sorry right? fruit is definitely a good choice. congrats to the couple

Beautee on

LMAO! You overweight, bon bon eating, bitter, lonely single and divorced women (of course one wouldn’t have to guess why you are single or divorced) crack me up. Thank you for making parts of my work days go by faster.

Leslee on

Not to be catty at anyone here nor to say that I agree w Mariah Carey either, I can’t deal w Aspen either. I have asthma and the altitude is too much for me, it makes it very hard for me to breathe and if not absolutely perfect timing for me, I run the risk of needing to go to the hospital for supplemental oxygen. I can’t imagine going up there pregnant, much less with my multiple.

molly on

I craved fruit, too! That and scrambled eggs, Mexican and cereal! Good for her, glad she is finally getting the family she desires. I hope all goes well for her and she and baby continue to be healthy! Just watch for too much fruit with Gestational Diabetes and the sugars!
Good luck M.C.!

KH on

RE: High altitudes, I believe the issue is that blood clots are more likely to occur. It’s one thing if you live there and are acclimated, but it’s probably not on the list of suggested vacation spots for a pregnant woman.

I saw her on HSN the other night and if she’s eating only fruit, she must be eating tons of it. Girl has just gotten big all over.

brannon on

Wow. Some people are just really mean. Every pregnancy is different and the amount of weight gained has more to do with genetics than food! My sil is vegan, craved only oranges and had zero sweet tooth but put on 55 pounds. Most was water retention. My other sil ate basically fast food for nine months and gained 20. Both started out 5’2 and 120 lbs. To each their own. Can’t we just be nice?! She looks beautiful!

Courtney on

- Tee, I completely agree with you, especially regarding that comment made from Lola to Courtney. “Always good to learn something new though” and “Here’s to all the strong, and intelligent women everywhere,” which suggests that Courtney is not is just disrepectful and unnecessary. People are on here discussing what a “pig” and “cow” Mariah is and what a “horrible and selfish mother” she’ll be and you jump on that remark because she used the word “gender,” which by the way is a completely acceptable and proper description. Just because your doctor doesn’t say to you “Would you like to know the GENDER of your child” does not mean that the usage of that word is incorrect. I really think you need to choose your battles and this was not the right one.

sandy on

she has always been big, and now shes HUGE!!!!

MiB on

Well, considering that she says her hands are swollen, I would hazard a guess that she suffers from water retention, which makes you look like you have gained more weight than you have. But to be honest, I don’t think I have seen any pictures of her where she looked huge.

Also, I have met several pregnant women who were craving fruit, and many of them had very specific demands on their fruit, barely ripe, very ripe, just ripe and spotless. A friend who usually prefers her bananas barely ripe (still almost green) suddenly wanted them over ripe (brown), which made the rest of us joke that she was pregnant, which she was…

Mel on

@Hayley W–”Mel- hmm maybe you should get a clue, you sound mean and nasty and a teeennnnny bit jealous x there is a large gap between not a fan or her dress sense and she’s a cow…”

Well, first off, I’m not remotely jealous of her. She used to be in great shape and took care of her body but once she divorced Tommy Mattola, she started wearing skin tight clothes and acting like a complete diva. I noticed a huge change and from other comments I’ve seen about her on this article as well as others, it appears I’m not the only one. I’m just saying, and not trying to be mean but make your kid proud to be seen with you. I dated a guy in high school who was so ashamed of his mother because she dressed and acted way too young to get attention and it was honestly pathetic. I am just hoping Mariah gets a clue and realizes this baby is far more important than she is now and will take care of her body, use her money and work out (not in heels) and not try to fit in clothes 2 sizes too small anymore. If you don’t like what I have to say, sorry, you’re entitled to your opinions as am I.

Allie on

I don’t think people are jealous, they are telling it like it is. I would rather be thin than rich to be honest. Im not talking anorexic, but normal, not like Mariah, shes huuuge. She’s married to my little brother……give me a man please, not my little brother. Not jealous of her at all, maybe some od her shoes but thats it.

Esme on

she is not the first or last woman to give birth, I saw her on HSN, she looked like she did not want to be there, never got off the couch, she acts like she’s crippled, making the host to the “diva” spin for her. She needs to get over herself, and quit expecting people to wait on her hand and foot.

Katie on

I’m jealous of her boobs!! They swelled along with her fingers, butt and hips!!! I love it!! I love that a celebrity got hefty during her pregnancy like I did. Makes me feel better!! Hats off to you honey for eating for 3!! :)

Tee on

Why do so many of you keep saying how huge she is? Mariah wasn’t stick thin before she got pregant. We don’t know if she’s carrying one baby or two babies. I wish somebody could show me a picture of her looking so “huge” because I just don’t see it! Sorry, but I think she looks just fine, happy and healthy.

Erika on

LOL Lola, did you not realize that when even when you change your name on the comment, it still shows up in the name you originally posted in if it’s on the same thread?

I think that the sex/gender thing is ridiculous. And I don’t care if Mariah is having twins or not- it is her and Nick’s business and not ours. We will know eventually and maybe she doesn’t want to share right now. I also don’t know why there are negative comments on this thread. She really didn’t say anything wrong. She was just talking about her pregnancy cravings.

CelebBabyLover on

mel- Mariah explained when she announced her pregnancy that she does not feel comfortable in flats. She also said that yes, she SHOULD get used to walking in flats. She went on to explain that she always been prone to walking on her toes, and she doesn’t know why she’s like that. It sounds to me like she wants to try to figure out how to change that. :)

MiB and Tee- Glad to know I’m not the only one who isn’t seeing the “hugeness” in Mariah that other commenters are talking about. You also both made some very good points about pregnancy weight. Tee is absolutely correct that we don’t know if she’s carrying twins or not. If she IS indeed carrying twins, then we can’t exactly expect that she’s going to look tiny while pregnant!

And MiB is spot on about water retention. Women can and do get really big during pregnancy for other reasons than just diet, and water retention is one of them! And water retention can range in severity from mild to severe. My grandmother had the severe kind when she was pregnant with my mom. And I do mean severe! Her legs were so swollen that actually had to cut slits in the sides of her pants in order to be able to get them on! She even ended up delivering my mom a month early because of how severe the water retension is (I think she probably had a little pre-eclampsia, of which severe water retention is a hallmark symptom).

Bottomline: All pregnancies are different!

I can’t believe some of these comments! Why don’t some of you try going through infertility and the brutal weight gaining treatments that go with it!!! Why are some of you so jealous of Mariah? All she is doing is enjoying the pregnancy she has tried so hard to achieve, this is her moment, leave her alone!

On another note. I can’t wait to see Mariah and Nick’s baby, or BABIES. If i am to believe the current rumours! She looks beautiful, as always, and i know her baby will be a ‘ heart breaker’

You people act like she’s choosing her cravings?! I mean, seriously, with my son I craved tomatoes and other healthy stuff. I did the same thing with my daughter, tomatoes, veggies, salad (with vinegar dressings), and cottage cheese. I just craved healthier stuff than most apparently.

Butterfly- Good point! If she DID indeed have fertility treatments (apparently she confirmed that fact in an interview, but I’ve yet to see it, so I don’t know where it orginated from. If it’s from a tab, it may not be accurate as they often make up interviews), they very likely caused her to gain some weight (fertility treatments often do). She probably didn’t lose all, or even any, of it by the time she concieved, so her pregnancy weight was just added to the weight she’d already gained.

I was also thinking she should try to get her ring cut off before she has to go the ER! Lather than hand up with some baby oil or something.

Wow!
I cannot believe how some people are so filled with hatred, & jealousy, and cannot find it in their hearts to be kind & happy for Nick & Mariah. It is unreal. First off, Mariah is a celebrity, who lives a completely different life style that most. Her husband Nick is adorable, & they Love each other very much. What they do & how they live is their business. i am filled with happiness for them. I wish them all the love & joy in the world. Some woman when pregnant gain a lot of water weight, some don’t. Some get huge breasts, some don’t. So what? It does not matter if she is having one baby or more , She is dealing with what ever her body changes are. As far as the Aspen thing goes, it could very well be a health concern. I saw her on HSN, she may have wanted to sit the way she was, she could have had swollen ankles… after all, She is one of many singing Diva’s..

I have 3 grown children, a son & two daughter’s. I craved steak & cashews with my son, raw cranberries, lemons, limes..dill pickles. With my girls, it was sweets.. I gained 20 & 21 with Josh & Heidi, & with Amy, only 8 & 3/4. Now my son Josh/35 will be a father for the first time in march, a baby girl. I am so happy for them. I am sure because of the great love between Mariah & Nick, they will be amazing parents. God blesss them both.

CONGRAT’S!!!! Nick and Mariah Cannon.

May your miracle babies be blessed, and in the best of health upon arrival(you as well Mariah). I know your babies will be beautiful and or handsome as well. Mariah, you are a very beautiful woman, and i admire your spirit, and keep loving your man no matter what people say! You two were married on my dads birthday; that makes me a very happy person considering, he passed away when i was 13 years old.

God Bless you all, and Happy Holidays!

Also, all hater’s in the world, if you don’t have anything nice to say then, “don’t say anything at all.”
