Last Sunday, Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon hosted a Pink and Blue baby shower for the twin babies they are expecting and yesterday, Mimi posted a heartfelt message of thanks to her fans for the lovely gifts they sent her. Today, courtesy of Life & Style magazine, we get to see a personal photo of Mariah and Nick from their baby shower and we get to hear about some of the fun stuff that went down last Sunday. Did you know this baby shower was the first one Mariah Carey ever attended? ‘Tis true, read on.
On March 6, Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon gathered an intimate group of friends and family at the rooftop Conservatory Grill at the Montage hotel to celebrate the arrival of their twin boy and girl, due in late April or early May. “I’d never been to a baby shower,” Mariah Carey tells the new issue of Life & Style, on stands now. “This was my first one — it was so festive!” Festive is an understatement! The shower, hosted by her pr and management team and Angel Champagne’s Stefano Zagni, was decorated in pink and blue hues — from the balloons and flowers to the servers’ aprons and the napkins. Guests–including celeb pals American Idol judge Randy Jackson, host Piers Morgan, actress turned director Penny Marshall, Sopranos alum Lorraine Bracco, and director Brett Ratner–noshed on a selection of gourmet pizzas and appetizers and enjoyed Mariah’s very own champagne, Angel. “Nick and I were so grateful to everyone who came to celebrate with us,” Mariah tells Life & Style. A 6-foot-long gift table was filled with tiny outfits, books and stuffed animals but possibly the best gift she was given came from her fans. “There was a lot of love in the room, and to top it off, fans from more than 50 countries sent well-wishes and stories in a book they made for our twins titled Always Be My Babies, which was the sweetest gesture in the world,” Mariah tells Life & Style. “It was a night I will never forget.”
The new issue of Life & Style has more photos and deets from the baby shower … which I know all you Lambs out there are going to want to see/read. I guess I hadn’t realized just how close Mimi is to giving birth. Even tho the shower usually comes pretty close to the birth of the baby/babies, hearing that she is due to pop in April or May just seems … so soon! I am LOVING how radiant Mariah looks in this photo … she looks so happy. Pregnancy looks very good on her. Let’s send our love and congrats, again, to Mr. and Mrs. Cannon on the coming birth of their babies. It won’t be long now … not long at all.
