You and your bump become good friends by the end of those 40 weeks. You rub it, caress it, use it as a snack tray. I was preggers during winter months, so I didn't have the chance to show off my baby bump per se, didn't have the opportunity to paint it, decorate it, have a bit of fun with my friend, the bump. But Mariah Carey is taking these last few weeks with her twin baby bump to have a bit of fun. The pop diva broke out the paint -- and, yes, the BeDazzler, people!
Mariah painted her bump with a butterfly (of course!), added some gold sparkly elements to the wings, and tweeted the pic to her fans with a caption:
My attempt @ festiveness on 327″ Mariah Tweeted in the caption of the photo adding, “For ATLITL thank u + I?U! Comin soon #dembabies! LYMA+thanx 4 making me happy:)
Who knew Mariah was so crafty?
Just check out the artwork -- a butterfly with one blue wing and one pink wing (she's having a boy and a girl). Love that yellow body and cute curly antennae and "dem babies" at the top of the bump. The painting covers that dark line a lot of mamas aren't too fond of, but that we all get when preggers -- the linea negrea.
The decorating occurred March 27 -- her "anniversary," or, as 99% of the rest of the world calls it, her birthday. She just had a bit of a scare with some pre-labor contractions and even went to the hospital the day before, but was sent home. Whew! Though, as she said, that would have been some "anniversary" present. She tweeted the news:
So #dembabies really wanted 2 celebrate w/us/share the anniversary! I started having contractions last night..went 2 the hospital...
hey almost came on 3/27- happy anniversary in deed!!! We have a few more weeks 2 go but- wow!!!: #soreadyallready!
A few more weeks means more baby bump paintings! I vote for a sun! Perhaps music notes? How about a Grammy? Keep the BeDazzler handy, Mariah, we want more!
What do you think of Mariah Carey's painted and BeDazzled bump?
