Monica weight


For as long as Monica has been in the public eye, she’s been a tall, lean woman. To this day, she still looks that way to fans, but according to the singer, she’s carrying more weight than she would like.

While vacationing with her kids in Anguilla for spring break, and doing so in a one-piece Balmain swimsuit, the 37-year-old shared with followers that at 140 pounds, she is at the highest weight she’s ever been. We’re sure hearing that someone is 140 lbs (and at 5’8″), for many, is eye-roll worthy. There are plenty of people who would love to be at that size. But when you know your body and what you’re comfortable with, any few extra pounds can feel like too much. And also, as someone with endometriosis, which can cause a lot of bloating and possible weight gain, she’s probably been dealing with all sorts of body changes. For the singer, it’s been enough to make her feel like she needs to hit the gym as soon as possible.

However, Monica has been getting encouragement to embrace her new weight from her greatest hype man — husband, Shannon Brown.

“My first time ever in life weighing 140 pounds.. None of my clothes fit,” she wrote on Instagram. “So I FaceTimed my husband to tell him I GOT to get in the gym ASAP… Before I got out a word he said ‘Damn you look good in your bathing suit’ and I was back to Miss Thang LOL… When they love you they lift you ……. 🖤 Thank you Baby…”

Interesting enough, it was just a few months ago that people speculated the singer might be with child due to her weight. In January, some sites were reporting that a source close to Monica said she was due to give birth to her fourth child in August. As you can see, that doesn’t seem to be the case:

Whatever weight the “Love All Over Me” singer is, it definitely looks great on her. Thank goodness she has a partner who reminds her of that.
