Meghan Trainor is expecting her first child early next year and she’s very excited, but also a little nervous.
The singer was chatting with Philadelphia radio station B101.1 and revealed that she’s really hoping to have her mom with her in the delivery room. However, due to COVID-19 precautions, she may not be able to have her there.

“I’m scared of birth and, like, not being able to have my mom in the room,” Trainor said. “‘Cause, like, they can barely let your husband in the room, but I’m like, ‘but I need my momma…I just need my head rubs, how do I do this?'”
The “Dear Future Husband” singer also revealed that she and husband Daryl Sabara planned on having their baby in quarantine.
“I just didn’t want to travel so much when I was pregnant and I knew this was time when I could stay home and elevate my feet,” Trainor said. “Some appointments my husband got to go to, and some he didn’t, but those appointments the doctors were very nice to me and set up a whole FaceTime.”
Throughout her pregnancy, the Grammy winner has been sharing details about her prenatal experience, most recently sharing that she had been diagnosed with gestational diabetes.
“Got a little tiny bump in the road—I got diagnosed with gestational diabetes, but it’s manageable and it’s okay. And I’m healthy and the baby’s healthy,” Trainor said at the time of her diagnosis. “I just have to really pay attention to everything I eat.”
Before the baby arrives, Trainor is also busy celebrating the holidays with the release of her new album, A Very Trainor Christmas.
When I’m not hanging out with my three-year-old and husband in Brooklyn, I’m busy writing stories for Mamas Uncut and managing PR + Marketing for Magnolia Bakery, based in New York City. On weekends, you can usually find me at a local park or playground pushing my daughter on the swings, “researching” the best almond croissants in Park Slope or launching into impromptu family dance parties at home, the sidewalk or, every once in awhile, a restaurant bathroom. I’m still trying to master the whole parenting thing, but I have learned that copious amounts of coffee, humor and humility are involved on a daily basis.
