SHE’S LOST 14kg! The curvy pop diva is proud as punch she’s got her body back

Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Contents -

Step­ping out in a slinky lit­tle black dress, songstress Mariah Carey stunned on­look­ers as she showed off her new slen­der fig­ure in New York re­cently.

The 48-year-old’s yoy­oing weight has been much talked about over the years but now the star – no­to­ri­ous for her diva ways – is look­ing health­ier than ever! And Woman’s Day can re­veal she’s thrilled to have done it all nat­u­rally this time around. “It’s taken a to­tal life­style change for Mariah to look this good, and she’s thrilled with the re­sults,” an in­sider close to the singer spills. “She’s feel­ing con­fi­dent and sex­ier than ever – and she swears this time it’s for good. “Be­fore, Mariah would look for a quick fix and visit the sur­geon’s of­fice for li­po­suc­tion. Now, she’s beaten the bulge sen­si­bly – it’s about a healthy rou­tine con­sist­ing of ex­er­cise and a sus­tain­able food menu that’s pre­pared by her per­sonal chef.” Mariah’s new ways have seen her lose 14kg in one year. “She meets reg­u­larly with her nutri­tion­ist, who comes up with tasty recipes and meal plans,” our source tells. “Mariah loves food, but she’s learned to con­trol her emo­tional eat­ing. She’s even given up her pen­chant for cham­pagne – she’ll have a glass, but only on spe­cial oc­ca­sions now. “She hasn’t felt so good phys­i­cally – and men­tally – in a long, long time,” adds the in­sider. “Don’t get me wrong – she’s still a diva, but she’s a hap­pier one!”

They’re the most ten­der, touch­ing and in­for­mal por­traits of the fu­ture King of Eng­land to date – and there’s no mis­tak­ing Prince Charles has be­come a big softie as his years ad­vance!

Cud­dling with his new­est grand­child, seven-month-old Prince Louis, in the lat­est snaps from Clarence House to cel­e­brate Charles’ 70th birth­day, friends were quick to note that they’ve never seen him look so happy and re­laxed.

And, adds an in­sider, it’s all be­cause of sage ad­vice from his el­dest son, 36-year-old Wil­liam.

“I would like him to have more time with the chil­dren... It’s some­thing I’m work­ing more heav­ily on, put it that way,” Prince Wil­liam said when asked about his fa­ther.

A source con­firms, “That com­ment re­ally struck a chord with Charles. He took a long look at him­self and re­alised Wil­liam was right. He missed most of Prince Ge­orge and Princess Char­lotte’s pre­cious baby years be­cause he was so busy with his own life and royal com­mit­ments.”

But with the ar­rival of Louis – the first of the Duke and Duchess of Cam­bridge’s chil­dren to look re­mark­ably like his mum’s side of the fam­ily – Charles has changed.

“He’s de­ter­mined not to make the same mis­takes and miss lit­tle Louis’ im­por­tant first mile­stone mo­ments,” says our royal aide. “He’s learn­ing as he gets older that fam­ily is more im­por­tant than work, and it’s im­por­tant to strike a bal­ance. He calls Wil­liam and Kate ev­ery day ask­ing about his grand­chil­dren, and vis­its at least once a week, which Wills says is a huge im­prove­ment. They’ve def­i­nitely no­ticed Louis is the ap­ple of Charles’ eye!”

‘He’s de­ter­mined not to miss Louis’ mile­stone mo­ments’

Charles spends a lot of time with Kate, Wills and the chil­dren. Louis is “the ap­ple of Charles’ eye”, say Kate and Wil­liam.
