Mariah Carey's twins redefine spoilt: eat your heart out, Suri Cruise!
Mariah Carey‘s got a reputation as one of the world’s most demanding divas, but she’s upped the diva dial to a whole new level now that she’s expecting twins.
We can reveal the singer has spent a whopping £800k on decking out a nursery fit for a king and queen for her unborn baby boy and girl.
The 40-year-old, married to Nick Cannon, 30, wants nothing but the best for her babies, who are due at the end of March.
‘Mariah and Nick have converted a whole wing of their Beverly Hills house into a luxury nursery,’ says a pal.
‘Mariah wanted 18-carat gold trim, with ivory walls, soft furnishings and walk-in wardrobes full of Petit Trésor designer clothes.
‘There’s a top-of-the-range sound system and they’ll each have diamond-encrusted iPods and a flatscreen TV that comes down from the ceiling.’
The twins will sleep in Chelsea Sleigh cribs, £1,390 each, while Mum and Dad relax in Glam Glider chairs at a knockdown £1,420. And there’s a Clara changing table, worth £1,780.
‘Mariah and her designer Kenneth Bordewick are overseeing every detail,’ says our insider.
‘There’s a $1 million red-crushed velvet, 24-carat gold and onyx sofa used for Michael Jackson’s shows. It’s very Alice In Wonderland, with swags of silk on the back.
‘It might seem over the top, but Mariah has waited a long time for her baby dreams to come true and she says the twins will be the most spoilt kids on the planet.’
Ooooh! Can you adopt us, Mariah?
