Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon celebrated the upcoming arrival of their twins with a lavish baby shower at the Conservatory Grill at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills.
The couple is expecting a boy and a girl, so the venue was decked out in blue and pink for the occasion.
“Mariah has been anxiously awaiting her shower, and she was very excited when she arrived at the hotel,” says a source. “She couldn’t wait to celebrate her baby twins with her friends.”
Friends and family joined Carey, 41, and Cannon, 30, for the celebration, including American Idol judge Randy Jackson.
The parents-to-be received many gifts, including two giant stuffed giraffes and two handmade chairs in addition to the usual items such as baby blankets, clothes, books and bath toys.
“Mariah had the best time at her shower,” says the source. “She was very touched by how nicely everything turned out and excited about all the generous gifts she received. She has been feeling a bit tired and worn out lately, but the shower was an event that she really enjoyed and that made her very happy. Now she can’t wait to meet her baby twins!”
