Singer Mariah Carey has lost over 30kgs since having babies ooroccan and Monroe.

The Shake It off hitmaker – who welcomed the twins with husband Nick Cannon six months ago – has managed to lose significant weight, but admits she was worried she would never be the same again following the pregnancy.

“In the beginning, when I first had the babies, I had so much edema, water and swelling. oost pregnant women have that just in their feet.”

“one day I was doing my thank-yous and I noticed it started rising up the leg, so I had edema. I didn’t think I would ever be the same person.”

“The first week, I lost 17kgs of just water. It was just water, initially. When I started with the programme, I lost at least 12kgs of weight that needs to be lost.”

The 42-year-old star struggled throughout her pregnancy and even had trouble when she was confined to her bed.

“I had a really tough pregnancy. I was supposed to be on bed rest, but it was so bad then even bed hurt. I learned a lot being pregnant, watching my body change.” Mariah says.
