Meghan Trainor is counting down the days until her original holiday single "My Kind of Present" gets an ultra-festive music video makeover.  The singer teased the upcoming treat, promising that fans will be able to indulge in some extra-spirited Christmas cheer when the video premieres on Friday.

"GET READY FOR THE ['My Kind of Present'] MUSIC VIDEO," Meghan rejoiced in an Instagram post on Wednesday, and also introduced the song's official artwork, which depicts her and husband Daryl Sabara embracing in a flurry of snowflakes. She also revealed that a very special little baby will be making his big debut in the clip.

"Introducing the adorable Riley Trainor," the Grammy winner proudly announced.  She and Daryl welcomed their firstborn nine months ago.  While he makes regular appearances on social media, this will mark the first time Riley will play a major role in his mom's work.

Meghan also revealed that choreographer Charm La'Donna will be jumping behind the camera to direct the cozy music video.  Charm previously worked with Meghan on "All About That Bass" and "Let You Be Right."

Charm also worked with artists Dua Lipa and Ava Max, directing the latter's "My Head & My Heart" music video.  In addition, she choreographed The Weeknd's Super Bowl Halftime show.

"My Kind of Present" is featured on Meghan's 2020 holiday album A Very Trainor Christmas, which features the voices of Meghan's dad, Gary Trainor, and cousins JaydenJenna and Marcus.

Meghan Trainor probably never imagined that the thing she's done that's gotten the most attention in 2021 is announcing that she and her husband, Daryl Sabara, have side-by-side toilets.  But it's apparently the gift that keeps on giving.

Meghan, whose new E! show Clash of the Cover bands premieres tonight, has posted a TikTok of herself sitting on the toilet.  She looks mournfully at the one next to her -- the one usually occupied by her husband -- which is empty, as Celine Dion's rendition of "All By Myself" plays. The caption reads, "POV: your husband is over the news about you having two toilets next to each other."

Meghan showed off a picture of the double toilets Tuesday night on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and admitted to Jimmy, "I didn’t know it was gonna be such a big deal. That’s why I casually brought it up on a podcast.”  She did say, however, that it was “the best thing [she’s] ever done.”

Megan also reiterated the concept behind the double toilets to Jimmy, explaining that her infant son Riley was the inspiration behind the odd choice.

As she told Jimmy, "You know, you get up all throughout the night with a baby and you got to pee and there’s so many moments where I was like, ‘Move!’ You know? I was like, ‘I have to go!'”

Meanwhile, Meghan is putting out a deluxe edition of her 2020 holiday album A Very Trainor Christmas with three new tracks. As she explained on Instagram, "It's Riley's first Christmas so naturally I had to add a few more tunes for this special season." The first song, "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree," is out Friday.

The revelation that Meghan Trainor and her husband, Daryl Sabara, have side-by-side toilets in their bathroom has people shook -- but Meghan took to Twitter to attempt the clarify the situation.

As previously reported, Meghan said on Nicole Byer's Why Won't You Date Me podcast that when she was doing construction on her new house, she asked the contractor to add another toilet in the master bathroom because when she and Daryl get up in the middle of the night with their baby son, Riley, sometimes they both have to pee.

At the time, Meghan said, "We've only pooped together twice,"  but added, "We pee at the same time a lot."

Now, on Twitter, Meghan backtracks, writing, "To clear things up…we pooped ONCE together and we laughed and said never again…but he will hang out with me if I'm [poop]ing cuz WE SOULMATES. And i legit miss him when I'm away from him. And we pee together obvi."

Meghan does have a sense of humor about the whole thing, though: She retweeted a GIF someone sent of an old Saturday Night Live parody commercial for something called the "Love Toilet."

Meghan Trainor burst into the spotlight in 2014 with her confident self-love anthem, "All About That Bass," but the singer admitted in a new interview that she has been secretly battling a panic disorder for years.

Speaking with People, the Grammy winner revealed that she had her first panic attack in December 2016, when announcing the 2017 Grammy nominees live on air.

"I was vibrating. I felt like I was going to pass out on live television. I was like, 'What's happening? I must be dying,'" she recalled. "As soon as they said 'Cut,' I went offstage and was [gasping for air] in front of everyone."

Her mental health struggles worsened following multiple vocal cord surgeries due to hemorrhaging and she began to fear she'd never sing again.

"I was in a dark place," said Trainor, noting she was also dating her future husband, Daryl Sabara, at the time. "I had everything I wanted — I had the love of my life — but mentally and physically I felt ill." 

It all came to a head when she rushed to the hospital, fearing she was having an allergic reaction to some food she had eaten.

"The doctor came in, looked really sad, and was like, 'Have you ever heard of a panic attack?' I was like, 'No, no, no, I'm having an allergic reaction. If you just look in the back of my throat, it's closing,'" she said. "That was my first lesson on what a panic attack can do to you."

Trainor was diagnosed with a panic disorder and has since sought out therapy and treatment to get her life back on track.

"I'm not ashamed to say I'm on antidepressants," said Meghan. "That medicine saved me, saved my life, saved my career...I'm back better than ever."
