42-year-old diva Mariah Carey can pop anytime soon, as she and husband Nick Cannon are expecting not one but two babies this spring in the U.S. The couple can’t wait for the arrival of their twins, one boy and a girl.
In preparation for the superstar’s giving birth, they’ve spent around a whopping $1.3 million on their babies’ luxury nursery in their Beverly Hills home, according to a report from News.com.au.
Now magazine mentions, “Mariah wanted 18-carat gold trim, with ivory walls, soft furnishings and walk-in wardrobes full of Petit Trésor designer clothes.” Aside from this, there’s also a state-of-the-art sound system, with diamond-encrusted iPods and a flat screen television set.
Mariah opted for a pink and green palette instead of the typical pink and blue, explaining further that all items in the room match, but each piece is ‘individualized to celebrate the twins as separate entities.’
The nursery also features a star-speckled ceiling amidst a blue sky, inspired by two songs Mariah personally wrote.
While Mariah is ecstatic to face the joys and hardships of becoming a mom, she admits that raising twins in Hollywood will be doubly challenging.
