Mariah’s on a mission–to get her body back. Six months after the birth of twins Moroccan and Monroe, Mariah has lost a stunning 30 pounds. And not one to shy away from showing off in front of the camera, she graces the new cover of US Weekly (on newsstands now) with her toned legs and flat stomach in size-6 (yep size 6!) short-shorts. “I gained an enormous amount of weight,” the Grammy-winner superstar tells Us of welcoming her son and daughter back in April with hubby Nick Cannon. How’d she slim down, you ask? Beginning in July, Mariah said she buckled down with a nutritionist and a workout plan from Jenny (formerly Jenny Craig), keeping to a 1,500-calorie-a-day menu and 3X-a-week workouts. “I feel incredible,” the super-diva tells Us, three months after her body transformation began.
She and Nick 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,” Mariah says, “But I felt trapped in my body because I couldn’t move.” Now with her newly svelte bod she says: “I’m proud of how hard I worked to get my body back…I had to do this for me.” Here Mariah’s oh so fab–and she knows it– in these diva-worthy Burberry shields. –rpuccia
