Pop diva Mariah Carey has prepared for the birth of her twins by indulging in a “babymoon” at a spa with friends.

The singing superstar and her husband Nick Cannon are set to become parents in the next few weeks, and Carey decided to take time out to relax prior to the birth.

Carey tells Life & Style magazine:

“A friend told me that before she had her son, she took a babymoon, which is something I’d never heard of before. Basically, it’s an excuse to do something decadent before the babies arrive! I’m pretty sure most moms-to-be out there understand what I mean when I say that after a while of being pregnant, you start climbing the walls and just want to get out of the house. So I went to an amazing spa on the ocean with a couple of friends and, of course, Cha Cha and the puppies.”

The singer indulged in hearty meals and luxurious spa treatments during the break, and even found time to play board games.

“Since at this point I have to really take it easy, we played board games like Taboo and Catch Phrase, ordered spa food and got as many spa treatments as possible!”

Can’t wait till Mariah finally drops that load. Is it just us or does it feel like she’s been pregnant forever?!?
