Mariah Covers Us Weekly, Says, “I Got My Body Back”

In Us Weekly’s latest issue, singer Mariah Carey, 40, talks getting her body back after baby.

In fact, for the last 24 hours the singer has been on a promotional frenzy as the new spokesperson for Jenny Craig. She sat down with Rosie O’Donnell on her new show, simply titled ‘Rosie’ on none other than Oprah’s new network OWN.

She also spoke with US Today about the difficulties she faced in her pregnancy, opening up about her battle with When she was expecting.

“Edema (swelling caused by excess fluid trapped in the body’s tissues) was the probably the most painful thing I went through during my pregnancy. My legs looked three times the size of what my legs do right now. I thought I would never be the same person again.”

Mariah ultimately lost 70lbs since delivering twins, Monroe and Moroccan 6 months ago.

Even in the womb, Mariah Carey says, her twins were already showing their true personalities. Watch as she describes the poses her daughter, Roe, struck during ultrasounds and find out why she was named after film icon Marilyn Monroe.
