Pregnant Mariah Carey is proud of her body

Pregnant Mariah Carey has stripped off for a new nude photo shoot with husband Nick Cannon.

The singer, who is due to give birth to twins next month, proudly shows off her baby bump in the naked snaps.

In one image, Nick, 30, is seen gently kissing Mariah's tummy and, in another picture, he wraps his arms protectively around her breasts.

The snaps were taken by photographer Kristofer Buckle to celebrate the pregnancy

'I'm so excited to meet our babies and I'm looking forward to being a mother,' says Mariah, 41.

'Nick will be a hands-on dad. He already reads stories to my tummy.'
