Meghan Trainor still loves her side-by-side toilets: ‘I don’t have to wait for him’

Oh my word – we’re back to the Twin Toilet story. For those who are blissfully unaware, Meghan Trainor’s brother unleashed this story on us last year. Meghan and her husband, Daryl Sabara, have side-by-side toilets in their bedroom suite, so they can “poop together.” Once that information got out there, folks ran with it. Meghan had a couple explanations for her choice. One was that it was easier with a small child to use the toilet simultaneously. Then it became about Meghan not wanting to be away from Daryl because she loved him so much. In all of her stories, Meghan fully embraced her decision to have her unique restroom layout. And she still does. While promoting her partnership with McCafé At Home for Ronald McDonald Charities, Meghan was talking about the toilets again. Not only did she not expect us to be so interested, she’s doubled down on her double-pots. She said the frequency with which they pee at the same time in the middle of the night makes it all worthwhile.

Meghan Trainor is all about having dual toilets in her bathroom.

In an exclusive candid chat with E! News about her partnership with McCafé At Home to help raise awareness surrounding Ronald McDonald House Charities, Meghan addressed all the buzz surrounding her family’s unconventional bathroom setup.

“I didn’t see it coming,” she said, noting that she had previously “mentioned it before but it didn’t blow up” until she spoke about her toilets on an episode of Spotify’s Why Won’t You Date Me? podcast. “Then, it was everywhere.”

Though the Internet had thoughts about it, Meghan has no regrets getting twinning porcelain thrones for herself and the Spy Kids alum.

“The amount of times that we pee at the same time in the middle of the night makes me so grateful that I have two toilets because I don’t have to wait for him or he doesn’t have to wait for me,” she explained. “We’re so in sync. It is gross, but I love it.”

[From E! News]

Meghan specifically designed the bathroom to have toilets next to each other. Clearly, she was committed to the idea enough to spend the cash and deal with any future resale hiccups that detail might cost her. So I’m honestly glad that she and Daryl are so happy with their investment. Like Meghan, I make changes to my home based on my wishes regardless of what a seller would think, which explains why the sale of my last home was such a nightmare. However, I fully accept when I do something odd that people will definitely talk about it. I had a heater removed that was leaking carbon monoxide and the new system was too big for the old heater’s closet. So I converted the old closet into a cat nightclub for my Calypso. I knew everyone would make fun of me for it and they do (it’s great publicity for the club). So I am a little surprised Meghan didn’t think people would want to talk about her double-dooty bathroom – a lot. But she said she’d mentioned it before and it didn’t get traction, so I guess she didn’t expect the second wave to be so big.

I am still confused by the synched peeing, though. I raised my babies in a home with one bathroom and we just did not have this issue of having to go at the exact same minute. Whatever works. Meghan and Daryl have the bathroom of their dreams, no one has to wait to pee, and we have something to talk about. We all win.

    I want to see pics of the Cat Nightclub!

  2. JFerber says:

    I love the pic of them together because they look so cute and in love. But for the love of God, stop with the dual toilets! Just stop.

  3. Eurydice says:

    Love the cat nightclub!

  4. teehee says:

    I am renovating with my partner:

    2 Bathrooms side by side. One for me, one for him, just like my grandparents had.

    • Eurydice says:

      Too funny – my dad had his own bathroom. Nobody else was allowed.

    • SarahCS says:

      We only have one bathroom at present but I read years ago that two sinks is the secret to a happy marriage and I was able to fit a double sink in. No regrets at all. We don’t use the bathroom together (he sometimes comes in when I’m brushing my teeth because I have the door open and I ask what he wants) but my sink stays CLEAN.

      Next up is a loft conversion that will have a en-suite and that will be his bathroom. I cannot wait.

  5. LightPurple says:

    Why are the two toilets different styles?

    I need pictures and video of Cat Nightclub!

    • SAS says:

      That is honestly the most upsetting thing to me in this whole scenario!

    • DeltaJuliet says:

      That’s what bugs me the most. If you have two toilets next to each other, they need to be the same style WTF.

    • AnaKist says:

      I thought the same, Lightpurple. They are completely different. The one on the right looks more like a bidet. Separate bathrooms – fantastic idea if you can manage it. Side-by-side loos? Ick. No thanks.

  6. Margaret says:

    They’re going to be fighting over that one toilet roll though!

    The ideal of side-by-side toilet appals me. A separate toilet adjacent to the bathroom, by all means, for those times you both want to be using it, but not side-by-side. *shudders*

    I, too, am bothered by the fact the two suites are completely different designs.

  7. KBeth says:

    This is gross. Pooping is a private affair.

  8. Christine says:

    The biggest question for me is do they only have one bathroom? Like is it too much work to walk down the hall if one is in use??

    • AMA1977 says:

      This, lol. There have been times that I’m in the bathroom in our primary bathroom so my husband uses the half/guest bath or vice versa. I’ve been married for 17 happy years and don’t feel the need to pee in front of anyone. This is weird, and I agree that if you are going to have a disturbing two-toilet situation going on, they should at least be identical.

    OMG CAT NIGHTCLUB ahahahah. I love this so much, need it for my tabby!

    This side by side throne preference of Meghan reminds me of the place in the Juanita Beach neighborhood of Kirkland, Wa I rented during my first pregnancy, a 2 bd 1.5 bath apartment. The master bath had a tub shower combo and a toilet, with a door that directly accessed the half bath, it’s main entry was from the front hallway, kind of like a Jack and Jill bath of sorts. It was hilarious when we figured out it was just two side by side toilets with a wall and door between, a guest opened the door and was so excited that they could be pot neighbors. It was too much for me, I get stage fright. So funny tho

  11. Nicegirl says:

    The cat nightclub is amazing!!! Wow!

  12. Jace says:

    Your cat nightclub is so cool!!

  13. NEENA ZEE says:

    She reminds me of the girls I knew in high school that needed a boyfriend to feel validated. Equating that faux validation with happiness, and then contorting themselves around the guy (or in some cases girls) in a variety of silly and stupid ways. Ugh. Poor Daryl probably feels smothered.
