Teigen had some unique cravings throughout her pregnancy with baby Luna, including this burrito the size of her head. “This burrito is so big I’m using it as a table for my fish taco,” she joked. According to hubby John Legend, Teigen was also craving sweets more than usual during her pregnancy, which could explain why she bought these 50 donuts.
Lively also craves sweets when she’s expecting. "I do have a sweet tooth, but a good sweet tooth—not overly sweet, not saccharin. Like dark chocolate," Lively told E! News. "I like salty and sweet."
Kourtney had the same cravings each of the three times she got pregnant. "I develop a thing for Nilla Wafer cookies every time,” she told Natural Health magazine. “I have no idea why! I've also been into cheese and pickle sandwiches. Everyone thinks I'm gross when I order them."
For Kunis, her appetite was totally different with her first and second pregnancies. “"With the first one I didn't have any aversions. I craved sauerkraut. The first half of my pregnancy, I couldn't get enough vinegar. Greek chopped salad: vinegar,” she revealed on Live with Kelly. “The second one, I can't eat meat. It'll look delicious to me, and then I'll take a bite of it, and then I'm like, 'Uh-uh. Can't do it.' This is going to offend a lot of people who are vegetarian: I love steak. I could eat ground beef—like a burger, I can eat—but whole pieces of meat, uh-uh. Uh-uh! It doesn't make any sense. But I can also eat eggs all day long. If someone's like, 'Have an egg for dinner!' I'm like, 'Great.' It's a very strange pregnancy when it comes to, like, food."
For Portman’s second pregnancy, her cravings were (for the most part!) much healthier. “With [Aleph] it was very ... I wanted cream puffs, anything dessert with cream in it, or just plain whipped cream straight,” she told Ellen DeGeneres. “This time it's, like, healthy—pineapple, cucumbers, burritos—which is maybe less healthy, but delicious.”
“Sometimes you can’t get a food out of your mind,” Alba told Latina magazine while pregnant with Haven. “I could always eat watermelon. With Honor, I loved fruit, too. It’s a decent craving. You still eat cheeseburgers and pickles—you just want watermelon really bad. I don’t deprive myself of anything. I eat whatever.”
Kemper was addicted to Ben & Jerry’s while pregnant with her first child. "I don't know if this is because of the pregnancy or just because I love ice cream but I've been eating a lot of ice cream," she told Conan O’Brien. "It's gotten to the point where I ... feel like an alcoholic but it's for Ben & Jerry's. I'm ashamed. I go to [the bodega] every night ... the [bodega owner and I] make eye contact and I, like, sort of look away."
The singer gave herself license to eat things she normally wouldn’t during her pregnancy. “Sometimes I’ll wake up in the middle of the night and I’ll be like, ‘Man, I’m hungry’ and then I’ll get up and have a midnight snack, which I’ve never done before. I ate Pop-Tarts,” Underwood told Rachael Ray. “I haven’t done that since college. But I knew they were in the pantry.”
The Orange Is the New Black star was craving food she hadn’t eaten in forever, like pastrami sandwiches on rye bread and Dr. Brown’s Black Cherry soda. “I haven’t eaten that stuff in years,” she said on Live with Kelly and Ryan, “and since I’ve been pregnant I’ve been craving kind of like this Jewish deli food, with the pickles and the sauerkraut and mustard. So we kind of delve into that.”
