Meghan Trainor on her couples toilets: ‘This is the best thing about my house’

Meghan Trainor did an interview on The Tonight Show earlier in the week that I’m just seeing now. She’s promoting her new E! music competition show, Clash of the Cover Bands, on which she’s a judge along with Adam Lambert and songwriter Esther Dean. As we’ve all heard, Meghan had toilets installed side by side in her bathroom so that she’d never have to be apart from her husband, Daryl Sabara. She talked about it on a podcast after her brother, who lives with her and Daryl, brought it up. Meghan later did a TikTok showing her toilet setup and has clarified that she’s only done number two at the same time as her husband once. On Fallon, she was completely comfortable discussing the situation and called the couples toilets her favorite thing about her house.

On the story blowing up
I didn’t know it was going to be such a big deal that’s why I casually brought it up on a podcast.

On her reasoning for putting the toilets side by side
You get up all throughout the night with a new baby and you have to pee. There were so many moments where I was like ‘move, I have to go.’ When I moved to this new house I was like ‘I have an extra toilet, can I just pop them next to each other.’ The plumber giggled and I was like ‘I don’t see why you’re laughing, just do it.’ I did it and it’s the best thing I ever did.

On if she’s going to keep the toilets as is
You know how expensive it would be to change that? This is the best thing about my house. It’s my favorite part of the house. Now it’s famous. I told my contractor ‘did you hear?’

So it’s clear she’s completely comfortable talking about the toilets, she’s not embarrassed that the news got out, and she’s not going to change it. Sometimes I think this is what’s necessary to be famous, a strong conviction in your choices and little to no shame about them. This is relatively harmless compared to many stories. I wonder how Daryl feels about this news getting out. She didn’t talk about him at allnd Jimmy didn’t ask. Also, if Meghan would have just framed this discussion around not being able to pee because her husband is taking up a toilet that would have gone over much better. I understand urgently needing to pee, especially after having a baby, and not being able to wait for someone else to finish. She made it about the “soulmates” thing though and that just seemed weird and codependent.

Here’s the interview, the toilet stuff is in the opening. You can see a shot of her toilets side by side at 1:45. Hers is fancy with a butt warmer and Daryl’s is basic and under the air conditioning. Rude.

    If I was wealthy enough to say “this is my personal toilet and no one else can use it”, I’d be all over that. I’d claim a whole bathroom for it, but I get where she’s going with this. Do you, Meghan!

  2. ME says:

    They can put a third one in the middle when their son is old enough to use the potty. My God.

      The family that shits together…

      I grew up in a family where my parents would yell at each other through the bathroom door while they were on the throne. I was raised by wolves with no boundaries. And even I would lock and seal that door like a vault if I had to go. You wouldn’t see hair or hyde of me for as long as it took. I’d go missing if it took days to do my business. No one would enter that door or even hear me breathe. If I had to, I’d rent a hotel room just to shit in peace.
      Maybe I don’t understand love.

  3. Chaine says:

    She could have avoided all this by buying a house with 14 bathrooms like the Sussexes.

  4. Izzy says:

    Can she just shut up about the toilets though?

  5. Leskat says:

    I still don’t understand this AT ALL!!! Does she not have other bathrooms in her house?? When my kids were babies and we both had to get up with them, and inevitably pee, we’d either wait our turn or go to another bathroom. You can’t tell me her kid’s bedroom doesn’t have a bathroom near or attached. So why do they need to use the same toilet at the same time so much that it necessitated 2 toilets? Frigging weird.

    Omf stfu

    This would never work for me and my husband would think I’ve lost my mind completely, if I would ever even mention it.

    I love having my own bathroom separate from my husband, privacy is crucial to me for certain things, not just the actual use of the toilet, but brushing my teeth, flossing my teeth, cleaning my tongue, applying moisturizer and sunscreen in the morning and so on…and on…

    My bathroom has a great shower, tub and bathroom vanity ( sink and storage cupboards )

    My toilet and stand alone sink are next to door to my bathroom, this WATER CLOSET has a small window and of course a door on it.

    My husband has the same, it works very well for both of us.

    My parents and his parents have the same and so does my sister and his brother, I guess the need for bathroom privacy runs in both families.

    • MarcelMarcel says:

      Aww man you’re living the dream. I wish I had my own bathroom. It’s one of the things I miss about living alone. Sometimes I just need to blast some music and spend like a hour moisturising in the bathroom for no real reason.

      • Ashby says:

        Thank you MarcelMarcel, but I wouldn’t call it a dream.

        It’s nothing fancy, just basic bathrooms and water closets in a small size house that we build on our own, not a lot of square footage, but very high ceilings to create space without having to clean more hardwood floors.

        Luckily we are both very practical and love things that are nice looking, but very functional, our minimalist approach to our house spills over to clothes, shoes…not into trends, just classis, simple, elegant and understated.

        We are both for less is more in pretty much everything, except books, we are such huge bookworms, but we rarely by books anymore.

        My friend was laughing at me just this morning, because I have green eyes, but in order to wear only a tiny bit of make-up, I wear green colored contacts instead just plain, so my eyes pop without much eye make-up.

        I don’t like make-up, so I only wear a very little eye make up, but LOVE great skin care that does not have parabens and other junk.

        Minimalist or lazy?

    This topic of hers, needs to STOP!! None of us need to know this SHIT!! Literally LOL

  9. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Privacy, and the ability to have it, are a primary concern in my household lol. I admit to co-sleeping with the boys for forever with each one, but thank God that ended seven or eight years ago lol. For at least 20 years or so, there was a kid in our bed. 😱

  10. Anne says:

    So what you’re telling me is that this person is so dull she has to harp on her toilet situation to stay in the news. Got it.

  11. Billie says:

    Enough about the toilets. Please stop writing about the toilets.

  12. jferber says:

    Please, please stop these stories. Someone needs to fire her manager. This stupid story will needlessly wreck her career.

    Still Nope.
