Caviar, lobster … relish and mayo sandwiches? So just what do celebrity mamas-to-be crave during their pregnancies?
With so many celebrities announcing their pregnancies lately, you know it was only a matter of time before they started to tell us about those weird and wonderful pregnancy food cravings. Already spilling the beans about what her pregnancy-enhanced taste buds just have to have? Mama-to-be Hilary Duff, who recently tweeted, "Now I can finally talk about my cravings! Today it was rice crispy treats! Trying really hard to give them ALL away!!!" To make the rest of us—pregnant or not—drool right along with her, Duff even posted a photo of a plateful of the gooey and delicious homemade treats.
Also in the mood for a midnight snack is none other than Beyonce, who recently announced her pregnancy in true diva form at the MTV Music Awards. According to Us magazine, the star's growing bump is making her crave down-home comfort food favorites. As an insider close to her band says, "She's been hungrier for Southern cooking!"
Another mom with a sweet tooth is Felicity star Kerri Russell, currently pregnant with baby number two, who has owned up to a hankering for whoopie pies, a sinful treat that is something akin to a soft cookie sandwich with frosting in the middle. She's even very specific about the kind of whoopie pie she wants, "pumpkin whoopie pie with cream cheese filling," Kerri tells People magazine. She even likes them when she's not pregnant!
Alyssa Milano, who joined the celebrity mom club in August after giving birth to son Milo, kept her cravings healthy by giving in to her love for a certain vegetable. "Broccoli! I can't even consider that a craving because it's so odd. I can't get enough broccoli!" the new mama tells Us.
Would You Eat This?
We'd rather not keep up with the Kardashians when it comes to certain food cravings. While pregnant with son Mason, Kourtney Kardashian tweeted that her "most intense craving was a waffle with butter and syrup." OK, we're fine with that one. But her weirdest? "Maybe a relish and mayo sandwich." Yuck! Let's hope the current crop of celebrity moms-to-be follow Kardashian's other cravings for "fruit and cold things like smoothies."
