Mariah Carey recently debuted her six-month-old twins to the world, and now she's revealing her post-baby body.
The 42-year-old singer stepped onto the stage of Rosie O'Donnell's OWN program "The Rosie Show" on Tuesday in a black mini-dress, fitted leather jacket and stilettos. Carey, who is married to Nick Cannon, gave birth to twins Moroccan and Monroe in April of this year and has since lost 70 pounds.
"I learned a lot, being pregnant, watching my body change," she told Rosie. "It wasn’t until the very end [of my pregnancy] that it got to the point where I really realized that your knees and joints can only take so much. So people who have been battling weight problems their whole lives, I have this whole other understanding of what it feels like."

After months of being withheld from the public eye, Mariah Carey's twins with Nick Cannon are stealing the spotlight.
Not only did Monroe and Moroccan Scott Cannon (or Roc and Roe, as their parents call them) do primetime on Friday with ABC's "20/20," they're also featured on a website called DemBabies.com. Mariah and Nick posted a note on the website explaining that they "deliberated for so long about how to reveal the first pictures of our babies to the world."
The answer was to forgo the typical celebrity magazine cover/spread and post personal snapshots of the twins, including one of the family dressed up as "The Incredibles," on their own site. Proceeds from sales of the images go to the Fresh Air Fund's Camp Mariah.

Natalie Portman is the latest celebrity to join our unique baby name round-up: The Oscar winner and her fiance Benjamin Millepied decided on "Aleph" for their recently born son.
People reports that Aleph, alternately spelled alef, is the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet, and has a meaning relating to the "origin of the universe...the primordial one that contains all numbers."
And while Aleph may not be a common first name - it's also the number one in Hebrew - neither is Pilot Inspektor, the name Jason Lee and Beth Riesgraf gave their son after listening to a song by the indie rock group Grandaddy.
Here’s a list of a few of our other favorite celebrity baby names:

For new dad Nick Cannon, there seems to be some truth to the saying that the apple doesn't fall from the tree.
The actor and comedian told Us Weekly that his son with Mariah Carey, two-month-old Moroccan, takes after him while Moroccan’s twin, Monroe, is more like a mini-Mariah.
“My son is laid back like me,” he explains. “My daughter's a diva like her mom!”
