Mariah Carey has confessed to an unusual pregnancy craving - fruit.

The diva has been hankering for healthy food since becoming pregnant with actor husband Nick Cannon's child.

She told US TV show Extra: "I don't know what it is but I'm just about fruit for some reason."

The singer, 40, revealed that she had become extra picky about what she eats since getting pregnant, saying: "It has to be really good for me to like it. The tastebud situation is unparalleled. I don't like that many things."

She said of her changing body shape: "My fingers have swelled a little bit. I couldn't even get this ring off if I tried."

Asked if she was going to find out the sex of her child, Mariah maintained: "I don't know. If I do, I'm not telling anybody."

Mariah said that she would not be able to go to her usual Christmas holiday destination, the exclusive US ski resort of Aspen, Colorado.

"I can't go there because of the altitude for me. I'm figuring it out, looking at different options but it's got to be snowy. I was thinking about staying in LA but it's not the most festive place. I need snow," she said.
