7 Foods Celebrities Crave While Pregnant

Ah, pregnancy. It’s something that many women look forward to — after all, according to society, how could you not look forward to feeding, clothing, and wiping up after a creature that is fully depending on you for a good 4 years of its initial life? Have fun with that!
All cynical jokes aside, there’s something about pregnancy that really changes a woman. All those hormones coursing through her system and you’re bound to come up with some weird — and definitely crazy behavior. We find that the funniest part of all.
Many have wondered why pregnant women crave weird foods. Some nutritionists speculate that the food craved is actually because the woman in question is lacking in some sort of nutrient, and the food that they crave is a silent storage facility of that nutrient. However, there are some foods that are just odd. Like, how do you explain the fact that some women crave ice? Well, nutritionists argue that it’s a sign that the woman isn’t getting enough water. It’s still something that is hotly debated, both in the medical world and the everyday world.
For example, some of the stuff pregnant women crave for food is downright weird. Don’t believe us? We collected 7 of the foods that celebrity expecting mothers crave most. Check it out.
1. Pickles and Ice Cream

This is a food that Cate Blanchett craved very much while pregnant with her children. The pickles aren’t bad, and the ice cream isn’t too terrible — it’s a pretty typical craving even if you’re not pregnant. But when you put the two together, it seems like you have the ultimate pregnancy food. There’s something about it that really gets women going, and we’ve never been able to really figure out why. Still, if you like it, you like it.
2. Sponges

Now, not every celebrity mom-to-be is gnawing on sponges. However, Davina McCall certainly did while she was pregnant. It’s actually a sign of pica, which is a disorder where people crave food that really isn’t food at all. This includes clay, dirt, ice, paint, and sand.
3. Cinnamon and Chili Chocolate

This one only has one celebrity fan — Angelina Jolie. She reported that she really loved the combination when she was pregnant. Now, that’s a woman that we really like. Spicy even on the inside — and craves more spice in her life! Wow, um…on second thought, maybe Angelina is a woman that’s a little too hot to handle? We don’t know, but we would love to find out. Lucky Brad!
4. Dirt

Dirt is one that Britney Spears was known for when she was pregnant. We can’t really say it with a straight face — the Queen of Pop (as far as this little modern era is concerned, sorry Madonna!) eating dirt? Somehow, we can hear “Slave 4 U” playing as Britney eats the dirt.
5. Vinegar
Vinegar is one of those foods that you either like, or you don’t like. Most people put it on salads to give it a healthy zing without too many calories, carbs, or fat. However, Natalie Portman was reported to drink it straight up when she was pregnant with her child!
6. Relish…Mayo…Sandwich…
This freaks us out. We think about relish. We think about mayo. We like mayo — better than that slutty Miracle Whip business, anyway. So what happens when you squish the two together? You get … relish and mayo sandwich. Wow. That’s a lot to take on, and it’s not even something that we think is all that tasty.
Kourtney Kardashian is the one that ate this while pregnant with her son, Mason.
7. Bone Marrow

Now this is a weird thing to crave while you’re pregnant. We get that babies demand iron and protein and things like that, but wow — bone marrow? This is what Milla Jovovich craved when she was pregnant. Bone marrow is considered a delicacy in many countries, but it just sounds yucky to us!
Well, that wraps up 7 of the craziest things that celebrity moms-to-be want to eat. Did we miss any? Let us know in the comments — we would love to hear from you!
