Pregnancy can do strange things to people, and these 5 stars have all experienced really weird cravings for food that they normally wouldn’t touch during their 9 months. Some have experienced waking up in the middle of night needing something strange to eat, while others suddenly chow down on watermelon and cupcakes, giving in to their urges and snacking on hard to find, strange eats!
Hilary Duff says she has experienced really strange cravings for things she’s never even liked before: “When I get something on my mind I want, I want it now. I’m ferocious. I’m always up for red hots, which is so weird because I’ve never liked them before. Thank god, it’s not fried and covered in butter. Red hots are totally doable.”
Maggie would only eat certain things, and sent her husband and brother out to find them:”In the beginning there were just things that I had to have and eat nothing else except that thing – like watermelon, which is hard in February. “There were things that made no sense, too. I had my brother staying with me at one point – he and Peter, they were running around the city trying to find something that I could eat. I was really sick. They came back with pasta and steak, Saltines (crackers) and all types of things and I couldn’t eat any of it. Then my brother handed me a spoonful of tiramisu – just sugar and cream – he said I sat up like a mommy and ate it!”
Kourtney was pigging out on cupcakes and weird sandwiches when she was pregnant with her first child: “Honestly it’s worth the LBs. Those famous cupcakes are sooooo addicting. I need rehab! LOL Immm obsessed! My most intense craving was a waffle with butter and syrup. weirdest maybe a relish and mayo sandwich, but only once thank god!”
Jessica Alba would wake up in the middle of the night wanting watermelon: “I will kill for watermelon. I wake up at two in the morning and I’m like, ‘I need watermelon so bad…’ and I do that, ‘I’m pregnant! I can’t change what’s happening!’ It’s so good… I don’t know what it is. I dream about it.”
Jessica Simpson’s pregnancy made her hate pizza, while she craved salty and sweet treats: “I no longer like pizza because it tastes sour. I crave cantaloupe like a crazy person. But I put salt all over it, so I don’t know if it’s that healthy. I crave anything salty and sweet. That mixture to me is so good. I can eat a whole cantaloupe in one morning.”
