(Newser) – Mariah Carey is down a whopping 70 pounds since giving birth to twins Moroccan and Monroe six months ago, she told Rosie O’Donnell yesterday. After first shedding 40 pounds of "water weight", she went on Jenny Craig (which is now, apparently, known as just “Jenny”) to lose the remaining 30. Perhaps the oddest detail from People’s story: Carey was lowered onto The Rosie Show stage atop a crescent moon. Us has a picture of Carey’s post-baby bod.

Mariah’s not the only celeb talking about her pregnancy: Jessica Simpson tells People her biggest craving now that she’s expecting is cantaloupe with “salt all over it.” As for her big announcement, she explains to Entertainment Tonight that she finally revealed her pregnancy because the “stomach spoke for itself.” She also said she’s waiting until “everything is over” to marry fiancé Eric Johnson, “so I don’t end up being a hormonal bridezilla.”
