In a new interview with Life & Style magazine, the songbird showed off her elaborate nursery, which cost a whopping $100,000. Decked out in soft unisex colors, Carey and her husband Nick Cannon infused their personal style within the room, located at their Bel-Air, Calif. mansion, but also dropped a pretty penny on specific items, like a $30,000 crib. "I wanted to create a beautiful, tranquil, cozy environment for the babies," Carey explained. "Everything matches, but pieces are individualized to celebrate the twins as separate entities."
The twosome split their time between New York to Los Angeles, but Cannon notes that being on either coast is important for his many jobs, which includes several hosting gigs on both radio and television. "I prefer the East Coast schooling over the West Coast," he said. "But there are other things that come into play, like work." Cannon and Carey have also built a nursery in their New York City apartment, which they also showcased in the magazine.
Since announcing her pregnancy last year, Carey has been letting the public in on every step of her pregnancy. "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," she continued. "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."
Earlier this month she released posed for two nude photo shoots, one for Life & Style and the other for OK! magazine. The 41-year-old is due to give birth any day now.
