Mariah Carey's Pregnant Magazine Cover Is 'Beautiful,' Nick Cannon Says

'She's such a trouper to be carrying two human beings in her body,' Cannon tells MTV News of his wife.

Mariah Carey had heads turning at the newsstand when she debuted her bare baby bump on this week's cover of Life & Style. And while it may have left some blushing, her hubby Nick Cannon told MTV News he loves it.

"I think the cover is beautiful," he said. "The way that happened — we weren't planning to put that out. It was an idea [where I said], 'You look beautiful. Let's take pictures.' It turned out to be so beautiful; we were like, 'The world has to see this.' I actually took some naked pictures too with her — hopefully those won't be on no magazine covers anytime soon."

So will Dad be following suit with his own scantily clad magazine cover? "I don't know if I want my kids to see my ass out, but they are classy," he laughed. "I like the ones of my wife more than the ones of me."

With Carey on the brink of labor at any moment, Cannon is just waiting for the call. The couple are completely ready to be parents — they have the twins' names picked out and everything. "She's doing amazingly right now," he gushed. "She's such a trouper to be carrying two human beings in her body and for her to have such high spirits and to be so understanding. ... It's just wonderful just to see her in all her aura and beauty, glow. I got a couple of phones on me."

"We thought of a few names, ironically, when we first met," he recalled. "On our first date [I was planning out our life], and she was into it, and we still play around with those names, but now that it's real ... when the babies come out, we'll see if they keep the names we made up on our first date."
