Mariah Carey certainly isn’t being shy when it comes to her baby (make that babies) bump.
Just days after she gave us all an early Easter present by tweeting a pic of her painted egg belly, along comes the new issue of Life & Style, which finds the singer striking a pose much like Demi Moore, Britney Spears and the Octomom (!) did while pregnant.
“Now I have so much respect for mothers everywhere, especially those who’ve had difficult pregnancies or given birth to multiples,” the soon-to-be mom of twins tells the mag. “We need to have Mother’s Day once a week!”
No argument there.
Summary: Days after tweeting a picture of her twin-size belly painted like a giant Easter egg with a red and blue butterfly, Carey struck a Demi Moore-like pose on the cover of Life & Style’s latest issue.
“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,” Carey told the magazine. “My ultimate goal was to share this incredibly personal moment with my true fans.”
Carey is weeks away from giving birth to twins — a boy and a girl — with her husband Nick Cannon. But already the girl is showing signs of being her mother’s daughter.
“The babies were kicking almost the entire time; it was unbelievable,” Carey said. “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!”
