Mariah still not has forgotten the incident of drowning when she was six but at the same time she still loves swimming. She loves nature and specially water and has not developed any fear upon her of water.
The pop singer was given the advice for swimming after giving birth to twins last year. She had gained weight for which she opted to swim on daily basis. Even now she is taking classes of water aerobics four to five times weekly.
While being interviewed by a celebrity magazine, she said
“Swimming is my favorite form of exercise, which is surprising since I almost drowned in the ocean when I was six. It was scary but it didn’t traumatize me or deter me from going in again. My mother just put me back in the water and told me it would be fine. And it was.”
