Women do a lot of weird stuff during pregnancy and they often demand quite a few things from their partners and other people around. But celebrities are different from normal people (or, at least, they think they are) and what they demand frequently goes over the top. Some of them want their baby to be born to a round of applause, others crave nothing but pasta. Some wake up hungry in the middle of the night, others want their hospital to follow a list of ridiculous rules.
In most cases, the demands of these celebrities are met because they pay to have their rules followed. But what about their partners? A baby’s dad doesn’t get any remuneration for putting up with their pregnant significant other’s demands, but he still has to do it.
Let’s see what pregnant celebs probably annoyed their partners way too much.
15 Mariah Carey Was An Even Bigger Diva Than Usual
Mariah Carey is a diva and she has proved it multiple times, including the time when she was expecting her twins. The singer wanted the hospital staff to play the live version of her song Fantasy as background music while she was in labor and she also demanded them to make sure that her babies come out to a round of applause. Bet nurses, doctors, and Carey’s partner were utterly annoyed by these weird demands.
14 Kourtney Kardashian Had Too Many Cravings
How can the list of ridiculous demands about anything go without at least one member of the Kardashian clan? This time, we’re going to talk about Kourtney, who drove her partner mad with multiple cravings she had during pregnancy. Among other things, the reality TV star wanted New York bagels (any other bagels didn’t work for her), Nilla wafers, and cheese-and-pickle sandwiches. She also demanded a high fashion pregnancy photoshoot that, to be honest, didn’t come out too well.
13 Salma Hayek Thought That She Was Completely Disfigured During Pregnancy
Salma Hayek is known for her incredibly beautiful body that, just like any other, became thicker during pregnancy. Most women who want to have kids expect it to happen and just deal with it. But Salma apparently thought that everything would be different for her. She once shared that her body was “severely disfigured” during and after pregnancy and even her hubby couldn’t convince her otherwise.
12 Carrie Underwood Needed Midnight Snacks
In the past, Carrie Underwood rarely ate at night, but pregnancy changed everything for the singer. At some point, she would get up in the middle of the night and realize that she was starving. Carrie’s significant other certainly didn’t like it to wake up to his hungry frau, so he found a way to make both of them happy – he just stocked a huge number of Pop-Tarts in the pantry for her to satisfy her cravings at any time.
11 Beyonce Had A Huge List Of Demands To Her Hospital
When Queen B was giving birth to her twins, she issued a huge list of demands to her hospital and made sure that her hubby Jay-Z observed the fulfillment of all these requirements. Among other things, the singer wanted all security cameras in the hospital to be off, demanded two sets of doctors to confuse the paparazzi, and stated that she wanted complete privacy and no communication.
10 Jennifer Lopez Also Made Her Then-Hubby Send A Large List
Jenny from the block has a reputation for being demanding and when she was pregnant she clearly was even harder to tolerate. Just like Jay-Z, her ex-hubby Marc Anthony had to make sure that the singer’s hospital staff followed all her demands during childbirth. According to the rider J-Lo sent to her hospital, she required Jo Malone candles in lime blossom and grapefruit, white lilies and roses, as well as a room temperature of 80 degrees.
9 Amal Clooney Just Had To Eat Italian Food Every Day
Amal Clooney is a classy woman, so it’s clear that she had classy cravings during pregnancy. We must admit that she and her famous hubby were lucky to have a house in Italy because Amal craved nothing else but Italian food. She was especially into pasta and risotto with white truffles. Risking to gain too many pounds, George supported Amal in her cravings and ate along with her.
8 Christina Aguilera Was Way Too Demanding At Work, So We Can Only Imagine Her At Home
During pregnancy, Christina Aguilera became more demanding than ever. According to her colleagues on The Voice, Aguilera is one of the worst people to work with and when the singer had a bun in the oven, she became even worse. She refused to take direction from anyone and was way louder and needier than usual. Her poor hubby must have been looking forward to childbirth more than anyone.
7 Mila Kunis Craved Sauerkraut And Vinegar Every Day
When Mila Kunis was pregnant for the first time, all she wanted to eat was sauerkraut and anything with vinegar, but her personal favorite was Greek salad topped with vinegar she had to eat every day. But during her second pregnancy, Ashton Kutcher had to adapt to new things because at that time his significant other didn’t have any cravings but had a huge aversion to meat.
6 Brad Pitt Must Have Been Tired Of Angelina's Crying Fits
When Angelina Jolie was pregnant with her twins, she wanted everything to be her way. The actress gave birth in France, at a private hospital just outside of Nice and, if the staff couldn’t cater to her every whim, Angelina would throw a crying fit. Among other things, she once demanded fresh-caught salmon for lunch, even though it wasn’t on the menu and they couldn’t get it for her. Looks like Brad Pitt had to put up with a lot of things back then.
5 Serena Williams Sent Her Hubby To Get Her Green Veggies
When Serena Williams was pregnant, she craved for green veggies. She even asked her partner Alexis Ohanian to get her some from the local market. While shopping for his significant other, he posted a photo on IG and captioned it, “It's Friday night, I'm at Publix, going shopping 'cause my fiancé has cravings. I was told there would be cravings. I was not told they would be these.”
4 Madonna Was Afraid Of The Evil Eye
When Madonna was giving birth to her daughter Lourdes, she was quite demanding at the hospital. For example, she needed to have dozens of white roses and candles in her room because, according to the singer, they would avert the evil eye. To protect her vocal cords, Madonna demanded to turn off the AC and after being in labor for a long time, she didn’t want to eat anything but French fries from McDonald’s.
3 Eva Longoria Didn't Have Cravings But Had A Lot Of Aversions
Unlike most other celebs on this list, Eva Longoria didn’t have any cravings during pregnancy. Instead, she had aversions to the foods she normally liked. For example, she didn’t want to eat or even to see any chicken. The actress shared, “My [husband] ordered it the other day and I’m like, ‘Why would you do that?!’” Why? Well, because you used you like it, right?
2 Rachel Zoe Was Determined To Film The Entire Process Of Labor And Use It In Her Show
Rachel Zoe is such a huge fashionista that she wanted to turn her labor into a glamorous event. When contractions began, the celebrity decided that it was high time to brush and spray her hair, pack her high-heel boots and Chanel sweaters into her hospital bag, and make her partner film the whole thing. Needless to say, the experience was much less glamorous than Zoe expected.
1 Blake Lively Wanted Sweets, But Nothing Too Sweet
A lot of women develop a sweet tooth during pregnancy, but Blake Lively’s one wasn’t so sweet. She craved sweets when she was expecting, but she only wanted dark chocolate and snacks that were both sweet and salty. So her hubby Ryan Reynolds had to put up with Blake’s desire and help her find the foods that she’d love to eat during these strange days.
