Pregnant Mariah Carey poses nude one month before due date

 Mariah Carey posed for her nude photo shoot one day after being hospitalized for contractions.

Mariah Carey is no stranger to baring all in song - and now she is doing the same in an intimate pregnancy portrait.  

The photos, which were taken by Life & Style just weeks before the "We Belong Together" singer is due to welcome twins - a boy and girl - with husband Nick Cannon, show a glowing Carey tenderly revealing her baby bump.

"I was feeling very vulnerable about taking pictures at all right now, but then I didn't want to miss this opportunity to document this once-in-a-lifetime experience," she tells the mag. "My ultimate goal was to share this incredibly personal moment with my true fans."

But while Carey, 42, may have been hesitant to jump in front of the camera so close to giving birth, her twins were more than ready for the flashing bulbs.

"The babies were kicking almost the entire time; it was unbelievable," Carey says. "Especially the girl - clearly she's a diva in training! We didn't start shooting until 1:30 a.m. because I was in the hospital from the night before until the day of the shoot with contractions five minutes apart!"

And after her brief hospital stay on March 27, Carey adds, "I have so much respect for mothers everywhere who've had difficult pregnancies or given birth to multiples. We need to have Mother's Day once a week!"

No doubt father-to-be Cannon, 30, feels the same way.

"I thought I couldn't love Mariah more," he says. "But I have a whole new appreciation and admiration for her."
