Mariah & Nick's Baby Nursery for The Twins

Mariah Carey: Glowing mommy-to-be
The most famous unborn babies, who already have been nicknamed by Mariah as 'dem babies' have yet to make their way into the world, but it seems that their parents Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are more than prepared for their arrival.

Mariah spoke to Life & Style magazine about the lavish nursery for her first two children, expected any day now.
"I wanted to create a beautiful, tranquil, cozy environment for the babies," Mariah tells Life & Style in an exclusive interview. "Everything matches, but pieces are individualized to celebrate the twins as separate entities."
Mariah's favorite part of the twins' LA nursery? The cloudscape, star-speckled ceiling. "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 favorites: 'Underneath the Stars' and 'Close My Eyes,'" Mariah tells Life & Style. "Sometimes I just sit in the nursery and stare at the ceiling because I love it so much. To me, it symbolizes wanting my children to dream as big as possible and to let their imaginations be unbridled." Mariah also incorporated her favorite winged insects, butterflies, into the nursery and super-soft stuffed-animal lambs, what the singer endearingly calls her fans. 
 "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," Mariah says. "It's going to be a delicate balance between raising them around glitz and glamour and keeping them grounded. One thing I'm sure of is that I'll be grateful for the twins every day, no matter what."
Patiently waiting: Nick has already confirmed a May 14th due date for the babies.
No babies yet! But the nursery is ready!

I expected it to be very gaudy, but for all the millions that Nick & Mariah have combined I'm actually very impressed at how pretty and neutral it looks.
