Nick & Mariah's Twins!
The twins make their TV debut.
Thanks Jenny! Mariah Carey is proud of her post-baby body, which she got with a little help from Jenny Craig.

What better testament to the delivery food program than a superstar endorsement? Name her the new brand ambassador! Done and done. 

Mariah made her first public appearance  as the new Jenny Craig Diet Ambassador today at the Four Seasons Hotel in New York City.

After having twins with hubby Nick Cannon, she admits that it took some effort to regain her normal size. 

“I gained an enormous amount of weight,” she told Us, adding that she lost 30 pounds in just three months.

Her total weight loss was 70 pounds! “It was a huge blessing to be able to have the babies. But I felt trapped in my body because I couldn’t move,”  she said on The Rosie Show.

After meeting with a nutrition specialist at Jenny, she says:

“The first week, I lost 40 lbs. … of just water. It was just water, initially. When I started with the program, I lost at least 30 lbs. of weight that needed to be lost.”
