Mariah Carey shows off her pregnant belly in photos
Finally, we have some photos of Mariah Carey's babies. They're still in the womb, of course, but hey, we're not going to argue with Life & Style for paying her to take off her shirt, Demi Moore-style.
"I was feeling very vulnerable about taking pictures at all right now, but then I didn't want to miss this opportunity to document this once-in-a-lifetime experience," Mimi tells the mag in an exclusive photo shoot. "My ultimate goal was to share this incredibly personal moment with my true fans."
True fans meaning folks who just can't wait for that belly to burst. And after a trip to the hospital on March 27, it's probably going to happen fairly soon: "The babies were kicking almost the entire time; it was unbelievable," Carey says. "Especially the girl -- clearly she's a diva in training! We didn't start shooting until 1:30 a.m. because I was in the hospital from the night before until the day of the shoot with contractions five minutes apart!"
So get ready for some energetic kids, because Mariah is already gearing up for the big day, which is slated for a few weeks from now (although she's still not being specific).
"Now I have so much respect for mothers everywhere, especially those who've had difficult pregnancies or given birth to multiples. We need to have Mother's Day once a week!" Make sure daddy Nick Cannon heard that last part.
