You knew it was only a matter of time until we started hearing about Kim Kardashian's krazy pregnancy kravings, right? I mean, the public is let in on every celeb mama-to-be's cravings. And this is Kim we're talking about. Of course we're going to know what she's making Kanye run out for in the middle of the night.
I have to say -- I'm genuinely surprised. Shocked, actually. I've never heard of a single pregnant woman crave this.
According to Kris Jenner, Kim apparently has hankerings for the following: "Giant cookie from BJ's; French fries; Chinese chicken salad; and artichokes."
That's a new one. I can honestly say that after having been pregnant myself, and having written about countless celeb pregnancy cravings (hide your eyes, English professors!), I have never heard of a single woman craving artichokes. Actually, I've never heard of a single person craving artichokes period -- pregnant or not. Although ... weirdly, right now, I kind of want one. Jesus, Kim really can market anything!
I'm thinking it's probably a specific artichoke Kim's wanting. Most likely one from some restaurant she went to, or some recipe her mom used to make, because just straight up craving an artichoke is odd. Although I did crave grapefruits constantly when I was pregnant. And Jessica Simpson did crave buttered everything Pop Tarts. So I guess whatever the body wants, it wants.
I'm sure this is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of what we'll be hearing about Kim's cravings. As anyone who's been pregnant knows, cravings change with time. But artichokes as a start? I like it.
What did you crave when pregnant?
