With so many pregnant celebs in the news, I just can't get enough of them. Natalie Portman and her award-winning bun-in-the-oven. Mariah Carey and her jaw-dropping nursery shopping. And after announcing she is pregnant just last week, Alyssa Milano is now dishing on what she's piling on her dish.
Yup, she's through her first trimester and talking cravings. Oh, those dang pregnancy cravings. Midnight munchies of mac-n-cheese. Breakfast binges on buttered croissants. But Alyssa doesn't want any of those -- nope, she wants (wait for it) broccoli.
Seriously? I'm glad Alyssa's getting good antioxidants and vitamin C (broccoli is chock-full of goodness), but this is the time where you get to splurge. You get double orders of French fries. You eat the ice cream straight from the carton. You play the "I can eat the whole pizza if I want to" card.
I checked out what other celeb moms craved: Ashlee Simpson craved junk food, Katie Holmes wanted cupcakes, and Halle Berry popped pickled peppers. And American Idol judge J. Lo? She wanted orange soda, M&Ms, and salsa. Now there's a mama who knows how to rock a craving.
I confess I didn't love being pregnant. Had major back woes and could never quite get comfortable in bed. But the one thing I did enjoy: my weird eating urges. What did I crave? BLT sandwiches and vanilla milkshakes. I still have those every once in a while, but doesn't quite hit the spot as they did when I was preggers.
Alyssa does admit it is an "odd" craving to have and says she isn't worried about weight gain. Good for her. Does Haagen-Dazs make broccoli ice cream?
Did you have weird pregnancy cravings?
