The music megastar and new mom shows off a trim and toned body on the cover of SHAPE
Talk about one hot mama! A year after giving birth to twins, Mariah Carey looks (and feels) better than ever. The Jenny Craig spokesperson glows on the cover of SHAPE’s May issue in a body-baring outfit that shows off her flat tummy and gorgeous curves.
In an exclusive interview with the magazine, Mariah opened up about how she dropped 30 pounds in three months, her thoughts on motherhood, and her plans for making new music.
“Pregnancy was probably the best and the hardest thing I’ll ever go through,” she said. “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?’”
The star credits Jenny Craig’s structured eating plan for her weight-loss success, along with a workout routine that helps her stay toned. “I used to be able to slim down just by exercising more, but that’s changed. Since having the babies, I realize that 90 percent of losing weight is my diet,” she said.
