Mariah shows off nursery
As she awaits the birth of her twins Mariah Carey has been showing off the nursery she has decorated for them.
The singer said "I wanted to create a beautiful, tranquil, cosy environment for the babies. Everything matches, but pieces are individualised to celebrate the twins as separate entities.The ceiling has orangey-pink clouds in a blue sky with golden stars twinkling. It's based on two songs I wrote that are fan favourites, 'Underneath the Stars' and 'Close My Eyes'.” It sounds wonderful…we’d quite like to live there ourselves!
And as she waits for her bundles of joy to arrive she says “Sometimes I just sit in the nursery and stare at the ceiling because I love it so much. To me, it symbolises wanting my children to dream as big as possible and to let their imaginations be unbridled. Being a mother is probably the hardest job in the world. I feel like, in a lot of ways, children come into the world to teach us.”
