(Newser) – More proof celebrities are just like us: They get weird pregnancy food cravings, too. The Sun reports that Beyonce is already hankering for some pretty weird combinations, which, perhaps too predictably, include pickles. "She's snacking on Oreo biscuits and gherkins," says a source. Also, "Bounty ice creams with hot chili sauce and she loves dipping bananas in ketchup." In B's honor, The Frisky runs down 13 more weird preggo-celeb cravings:

  • Britney Spears: The once-troubled pop star wanted to eat … dirt?
  • Halle Berry: She drank pepperoncini juice.

  • Jessica Alba: Apparently she never tired of ham and cheese sandwiches, and ate them every day.
  • Minnie Driver: She ate olives. Lots of olives. She even dreamed about them, reportedly.
  • Tameka Foster: Usher’s wife liked to eat ice.

How about craving privacy? Sometimes these celebs appear to be using pregnancy as a publicity tool.

craving ice is a sign of iron deficiency, whilst the dirt craving is a condition called pica, both very normal for any pregnancy.
