Copper tubs and dolphin watching: Mariah Carey’s “babymoon”

Forget honeymoon getaways. As a mommy-to-be to twins, Mariah Carey knows it’s all about the babymoon! The dazzling music artist took a few days off for relaxation before the arrival of her babies. She hung out with close friends at Terranea Resort in Palos Verdes, Calif.

Mariah and her guests nestled in on 102 lush oceanside acres that afford daily dolphin sightings “the setting is so indescribably beautiful,” Mariah tells Life & Style. Terranea provided a breathtaking backdrop for playing rousing games of Taboo and Catch Phrase with her pals, nibbling on tasty treats from the Spa Café and indulging in as many relaxing spa treatments as possible.

“As my fans know, I love the ocean, and I love dolphins. But I never dreamed I’d be sitting fireside in a copper tub watching schools of wild dolphins passing by throughout the day!” gushes Mariah.

The twins are due in just a few days… and Nick and Mariah can’t wait to take them home!

What would you do for your babymoon?

(Clouds + stars + butterflies + lambs) x 2 = Mariah Carey’s nurseries!

Yes, that’s right! Not one, but TWO nurseries for Mariah Carey, of course!

As you already know, Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are having twins, and they plan on raising them on both coasts. Mariah and Nick have built a glammed-out nursery in their Bel-Air, Calif., estate… and another in their NYC apartment.

“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.”

And instead of doing the traditional pink and blue, Mariah and Nick have accented their nurseries with side-by-side pink and green cribs.

But what does Mariah love the most about the babies’ new rooms? The ceiling studded with clouds and gold stars!

“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.

This Friday, pick up the newest issue of Life & Style and see photos of the new nurseries… and read about how Mariah and Nick plan on raising their kids!

Inside Mariah Carey’s baby shower!

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!”

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 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.”

Go big or go home!
