Meghan Trainor is pregnant with her first child and while she’s thrilled about her new arrival, she recently opened up about being diagnosed with gestational diabetes.
The singer, 26, is expecting a boy with husband Daryl Sabara, and spoke to Today about the surprise complication.

“Got a little tiny bump in the road – I got diagnosed with gestational diabetes, but it’s management and it’s ok,” the “No Excuses” star said. “And I’m healthy and the baby’s healthy. I just really have to pay attention to everything I eat.”
“It’s nice to learn so much about food and health,” she continued. “[It’s] nice to hear that so many women experienced this.”
Between 2 and 10 percent of women are diagnosed with gestational diabetes on a yearly basis, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Gestational diabetes occurs when the body isn’t producing enough insulin and, as a result, can’t effectively manage your blood sugar.
Trainer isn’t letting the diagnosis stop her from getting in the holiday spirit. The A Very Trainor Christmas singer also shared how she Sabara will be celebrating the holidays, as well as Trainor’s birthday and the couple’s wedding anniversary.
“At this point, I don’t know what we can do to celebrate, but I’m gonna be happy – and I told everyone for my birthday just give me baby stuff,” she told Today.
