Mariah Carey Shows off Baby Mama Bump / by

A heavily pregnant Mariah Carey poses for the cover of "Life & Style" magazine and shows off her baby bump. The mom to be is carrying twins and is set to give birth any week now. Check out an excerpt from the interview after the jump.

“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.”

The boy and girl are not due for another few weeks, but they are eager to meet their parents. “The babies were kicking almost the entire time; it was unbelievable,” she shares. “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!”

Her doting husband Nick Cannon is singing his wife’s praises. “I thought I couldn’t love Mariah more,” he gushes. “But I have a whole new appreciation and admiration for her.”

The mom-to-be adds, “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!”

Can't wait to see the babies!! I do remember that she felt that she looked OBESE and didn't want to be seen or to have photos taken of her and her pregnant belly. But now, she can't keep her damn clothes on. This lady is shirtless, no bra or nothing. I ain't mad at'cha Mariah.
