Now that Mariah Carey is a mother, we’ve probably never seen her look better than ever before. The chart topper reveals her post-pregnancy weight loss to Shape Magazine, including her tips on how she shed 70 pounds after she gave birth to her twins last April, Morrocan and Monroe.
The songstress also talks about her difficult pregnancy and even goes as far as using the “f” word. She tells the mag:
“Pregnancy was probably the best and the hardest thing I’ll ever go through. I know for a lot of women, it can be wonderful and relatively easy. But for me, it was like ‘Okay, honey, do you have to do everything the hard way?'”
“Everyone said I was fat, so I did something about it. I put on around 70 lbs., but if you look at photos of me when I was pregnant, you’d say, ‘Wow, she gained 9,000 pounds!’ A lot of it was water weight because I pretty much had head-to-toe edema, which is very painful.”
