Pregnant Mariah Goes Topless--Bares Belly

WOW! That's a whole lotta Mariah Carey.

Mariah is just days away from giving birth to twins, but that hasn't stopped her from posing topless and baring her belly to Life & Style magazine.

“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 exclusively tells Life & Style.

“My ultimate goal was to share this incredibly personal moment with my true fans.”

And the twins — a boy and a girl — were clearly ready for their closeups.

“The babies were kicking almost the entire time; it was unbelievable,” Mariah tells Life & Style. “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!”

After having such a hard time conceiving Mariah admits she's gained newfound respect for mothers. “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!”

So I'm assuming these were the photos Nick was talking about earlier this week? He confessed that him and Mariah took naked photos and are considering hanging them up in their NYC pad, but he hates seeing himself naked.

So what, L&S asked Mariah for the shoot and Nick got buck naked and joined in on the fun? Fun stuff. For the full spread (no pun intended) check out the new issue of L&S.
