Meghan Trainor is «scared» about giving birth without her mother by her side.
The ‘All About That Bass’ hitmaker and her husband Daryl Sabara are expecting their first child together, but Meghan is really worried that her mother Kelli won’t be allowed in the room when she gives birth due to the current guidelines surrounding the coronavirus pandemic.
Speaking about being pregnant in lockdown, she said: «We’re so excited, we planned it out so – when I tell people I’m scared to go to my appointments alone, and they’re like, ‘Don’t have a baby in quarantine.’ But I didn’t want to travel so much when I’m pregnant and I know this is the time to stay home. 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 FaceTime … I’m scared of birth and, like, not being able to have my mom in the room. ‘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.»Meghan is looking forward to Christmas, which has always been a big deal for her family.
Speaking to Philadelphia’s B101.1 radio, she added: «A lot of people feel bad for me because my birthday’s December 22 but it was always the best for me. Not only did I get Christmas, I also got my birthday. In my world it was the best month of all time. You would get let out of school. I was like, ‘I truly won’. I’m so lucky that I was born on this day.
«Growing up in Nantucket, my dad always got real trees. I remember the pain that was and how annoying it was to have a real tree. So nowadays, as an adult, I have a lot of dogs – I don’t want them to eat the needles – so we’ve got fake trees this year. But as a kid, my dad would decorate the whole entire house and it was so special and I just remember growing up, having all the Christmas tree lightings downtown. It was huge for us growing up.»
