What did Meghan Trainor have to say about her son’s journey into the world?
In a 2021 media interaction, the Just a Friend to You singer disclosed that her son’s journey into the world wasn’t easy due to her gestational diabetes diagnosis during her pregnancy.
During a March 2021 interview with Ryan Seacrest, Meghan said, “I’m like, ‘I’m sorry, man! I ate such crap in the first few trimesters.’ And they’re like, ‘It’s not you. It’s nothing you ate. It’s in your genetics.’ And I’m like, ‘OK,’ because my mom did have it too.”
Later on, in an appearance on the Today show during the same month, Trainor stated that she was “pay[ing] attention” to her diet while she was expecting. She went on to say, “It’s nice to learn so much about food and health, and [it’s] nice to hear that so many women experience this.”
Riley’s birth was terrifying for Meghan and her husband Daryl Sabara
A couple of months after the arrival of her son Riley, the All About That Bass crooner, revealed that her son Riley’s birth was terrifying for the couple. During a June 2021 interview on the Today Show, she spilled the beans on the birth story of her son Riley. Meghan underwent a cesarean section because he was breech.
At that time, Trainor said, “It was one of those horror stories where he didn’t cry. He didn’t make noise when he came out. I was like, ‘Why isn’t he crying?’ Then they told me he was having breathing issues.”
The Like I’m Gonna Lose You singer and the Wizards of Waverly Place actor only got to see their baby boy “for one second before” he had to be taken away, which was “the worst part” of the delivery experience.
Meghan went on to say, “It was definitely a rough start. But we’re so lucky we got to bring him home after five days.” Since the time of their son’s arrival, they keep sharing photos and videos of their son on the social networking platform Instagram.

How has motherhood impacted Meghan and her career?

On the other hand, Meghan also opened up about her music career and stated that her “lyrics are changing” as a new mom. Talking about her new music, she said, “It feels like I’m telling my truth.”
Trainor further added, “I heard that when you have a baby, you get more creative, and my lyrics are changing. Instead of writing songs to make everyone feel better, I’m writing about how I feel in this moment.”
The artist explained, “But it’s not like every day is sad. It’s more like: Yes, I am a badass, but this ain’t easy, and I have to get up and keep going.”
