Pregnant Mariah Carey Bares Her Bump On The Cover Of Life & Style!

Mariah is the latest pregnant star to strip down for an intimate nude cover shoot.

Mariah Carey, 42, may just be days away from giving birth to her twins — a boy and a girl — with Nick Cannon, 30, but that didn’t stop her from baring her baby bump for all to see! She looks beautiful!

“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,” Mariah tells Life & Style. “My ultimate goal was to share this incredibly personal moment with my true fans.”

And apparently the babies were as excited as Mariah about their close-up! “The babies were kicking almost the entire time; it was unbelievable,” the proud mommy-to-be 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!”

Yup, as we all know by now, Mariah had quite the pregnancy scare last month when she started experiencing serious contractions. But, doctors gave her the go ahead to head home and wait just a few more weeks for the twins to make their debut.

“I am super excited to meet them of course, but I really am trying to keep the babies in as long as possible because ultimately what’s most important is their health,” Mariah explains. “It’s getting harder everyday physically. But they say you forget all of this once you see the babies.”

And the twins sounds like they are ready to come on out — they already have distinct personalities! “The girl is more active — she’s always kicking Mariah and moving around,” Nick says. “I’m pretty sure she gets that hyperactivity from me! And the boy is always making his presence known on the ultrasounds. We’ve got one outgoing one and one super-active one.”

Mariah’s pregnancy has given her a new found appreciation for mothers everywhere and she can’t wait to finally be with her babies. “Now I have so much respect for mothers everywhere, especially those who’ve had difficult pregnancies or given birth to multiples,” she reveals. “We need to have Mother’s Day once a week!”

We can’t wait for Mariah and Nick’s son and daughter to arrive!

What a horrible, amateur photograph, how her expensive PR people did not tell her is appauling. She has become so tacky she is a D-lister! Sick and tired of her and her husband scheming around to sell themselves as a hot couple. In this cover she looks like a cave woman with that unruly hair. And what is up with that disgusting hair line in the belly button?!!! Her pose looks like she is doing a mammography. Her hand is clutching and tense. Cannot believe she allow such an amateur photographer to take such a make-it-or-break-it shot. It is a BUST! At least Demi did it for Vanity Fair and looked polished and wholesome. All the others that came after are stupid in copying the VF idea. Losers!
