Mariah Carey: Pregnant & Nude For ‘Life & Style’ [PHOTO]

I guess this photo does really confirm that Mariah Carey is actually pregnant. Mariah covers the forthcoming issue of Life & Style magazine nude and very pregnant.

Mariah tells Life & Style:

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

She goes on to talk about her forthcoming twins – a boy and a girl:

“The babies were kicking almost the entire time; it was unbelievable. 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!”

The singer went on to reveal how the process of becoming a first time mother has shaped her perception on parenting, saying, “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!”

Pick up Life & Style this Friday on newsstands where you’ll find more photos from the shoot.
