Preggers Mariah Carey Shares Her ‘Babymoon’ Experience + Talks Nude Shoot


Vibe | April 8, 2011 - 8:46 pm

Mariah Carey took her final days of pregnancy and decided to turn it into something beautiful. The legendary songstress, who is expecting twins any day now with husband Nick Cannon, posed for the cover of Life & Style magazine in a very tastefully done nude shoot.

The singer also participated in a traditional practice for pregnant women called a ‘babymoon’, although Mariah herself admittedly never heard of such a practice. “A friend told me that before she had her son, she took a babymoon, which is something I’d never heard of before,” Mariah tells Life & Style. “Basically, it’s an excuse to do something decadent before the babies arrive!” The mother-to-be went to a lavish spa, complete with the guessing game Taboo, spa food, and a foot massage, which she points out as a favorite from the whole experience.

Mariah also approved of the pictures from the shoot, stating “I am so glad we took these pictures as a keepsake and a reminder of this time in my life. Right now I’m counting down the days till we meet the babies.” After years of trying, and an admitted miscarriage back in 2008, it’s really good to see Mariah happy and ready to bring new life into the world.
