Remember when singer Mariah extended her stay in the hospital after delivering her twins 6 months ago? Most of you speculated that Mimi underwent a tummy tuck in order to show off her post-delivery body on magazine covers.
Talk about a drama queen; Mariah tells US Weekly magazine she "felt trapped" in her body because she "couldn't move." Was she that big?
Six months after welcoming twins Moroccan and Monroe, Mariah Carey has lost 30 pounds -- and shows off her toned legs and flat stomach in size-6 short-shorts on the stunning new cover of Us Weekly, out now.
"I gained an enormous amount of weight," the Grammy-winner superstar tells Us of welcoming her son and daughter April 30 with hubby Nick Cannon.
How'd she slim down? Beginning in July, Carey buckled down with a nutritionist and a workout plan from Jenny (formerly Jenny Craig), keeping to a 1,500-calorie-a-day menu and thrice-weekly workouts.
"I feel incredible," the "Fly Like a Bird" singer tells Us, three months after her body transformation began. She and Cannon, 31, famously struggled to conceive their twins (born via C-section at 35 weeks) after a heartbreaking miscarriage.
"It was a huge blessing to be able to have the babies," Carey says, "But I felt trapped in my body because I couldn't move."
