Mother to be Mariah Carey has developed a new found respect for mothers, especially those who gave birth to twins. The R&B diva, who is expecting twins with husband Nick Cannon, believes all parents should be celebrated, especially those who have had “difficult pregnancies.”
“I have so much respect for mothers everywhere, especially those who’ve had difficult pregnancies or given birth to multiples,” Carey tells Life & Style magazine. “We need to have Mother’s Day once a week!”
Carey, who linked with the magazine to shoot the special feature, says she felt vulnerable taking photos of her baby bump but knew it was a great personal moment for her fans.
“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,” says the 41-year-old singer, adding “My ultimate goal was to share this incredibly personal moment with my true fans.”
Apparently Carey’s two little one’s wanted to get their photos taken as well.
She says: “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 1.30am because I was in the hospital from the night before until the day of the shoot with contractions five minutes apart.”
