Carey strips off for front cover
Mariah Carey has admitted to feeling "vulnerable" as she bared her baby bump for a magazine cover.
Following in the footsteps of Demi Moore, Britney Spears and Miranda Kerr, the heavily pregnant superstar diva, who is expecting twins with husband Nick Cannon, posed nude for Life And 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," Mariah told the magazine.
"My ultimate goal was to share this incredibly personal moment with my true fans."
Mariah, who had previously showed off her bump on Twitter, joked her babies - a boy and a girl - are getting a head start to diva-dom.
"The babies were kicking almost the entire time; it was unbelievable. Especially the girl - clearly she's a diva in training!" she quipped.
"We didn't start shooting until 1.30am because I was in the hospital from the night before until the day of the shoot with contractions five minutes apart!"
