The American pop star Meghan Trainor has been on cloud nine since she announced she is pregnant with her second child. The singer is delighted about becoming a second-time mother and having a healthy pregnancy. The All About That Bass singer was married to Spy Kids star Daryl Sabara in 2018, and they welcomed a son named Riley Sabara in Feb 2021, who is almost two.
In addition, the Title singer shared another piece of news about her first book, which is based on her pregnancy and motherhood experiences during her first child’s birth. Despite this two happy news, the singer was once branded anti-feminist for her songs All About That Bass and Title in her early career days. These songs were billed as female body positivity, but they reinforced the message that female bodies exist solely for men’s pleasure and that being desired by men is crucial to a woman’s sense of self-worth.

Meghan Trainor Is Pregnant With Her Second Child
On Monday morning, the 29-year-old American pop star Meghan Trainor announced on Today Show that she is pregnant second time with her husband, Daryl Sabara. The couple shares an adorable son Riley Sabara whom they welcomed on February 8, 2021. Afterward, the All About That Bass singer confirmed the news with PEOPLE and expressed her joy.
Trainor told PEOPLE,
“What a blessing. I’m just so grateful I can get pregnant. And I’m like, ‘I’m crushing it. This is amazing. This is my dream.’ I’m halfway there — I want four kids!”
“We try to tell him, ‘There’s a baby in the belly,’ but then he points to his belly now and is like, ‘Baby.’ And we’re like, ‘Oh no, it’s not in yours — it’s in Mama’s belly!'”
“It’s like a real pregnancy. The first one was like make-believe. I had no symptoms with Riley to the point where I was like, ‘We need to go to the doctor. There’s nothing in me.’ I got my symptoms late in my pregnancy with Riley.”
“I got them a right away with this baby. I got red perioral dermatitis all over my face — so that’s been fun with makeup — and popped early and was very nauseous. I was sick, my b**bies were aching. This one was a ride. It was a rocky ride, but luckily it was during the holidays, so I could just chill and lay down. I pee every 20 minutes and fully out of breath just from talking. It’s great.”
She revealed that she is in her second trimester now as her fourth month is running. In addition, the singer revealed they are keeping the gender of the baby under wraps for the time being. Besides sharing the baby announcement on Instagram with a photo of her sonogram, she also confirmed that the baby would arrive this summer.

Trainor told PEOPLE,
“I’m an open book, and I love telling everybody everything about my grossness and all my truths. When someone goes, ‘Oh my God, me too,’ then it makes me feel like I’m not alone, and I’m like, ‘I’m not weird; my body’s not different. It’s normal.'”
In that book, she will share her experience with pregnancy with a weigh-in from her OB-GYN, TMI real talk about body image, registered dietician, and personal trainer, along with her own experiences.

The Reason Meghan Trainor Was Once Labeled An Anti-Feminist
Meghan Trainor told Billboard in an interview when she was just starting out at 20 that she wasn’t a feminist. She came under fire due to her songs All About That Bass and Title, which portrayed the image of female body positivity, but they weren’t actually. Her critics complained that her song, All About That Bass, was perceived as judgmental about certain female bodies, despite its clear message of self-acceptance.
Trainor said in an interview with Billboard,
“I don’t consider myself a feminist, but I’m down for my first opportunity to say something to the world to be so meaningful. If you asked me, ‘What do you want to say?’ it would be, ‘Love yourself more.’”
Several listeners perceive All About That Bass as body shaming, reinforcing the notion that men validate women’s beauty. After her songs and confirmation that she was not a feminist, she was labeled an anti-feminist. A year later, her song Title also came under the same controversy. The singer later confirmed in several interviews that she is a feminist and squashed all the labels that she received as a result of both her songs and her interview statement.
