Mariah Carey isn't really one for subtly, so it's no surprise her baby shower was a lavish over-the-top affair.
The 41-year-old star, who is currently expecting twins with Nick Cannon, 31, has released photographs from the celebration, which was held at the Montage Beverly Hills Hotel on Sunday.
The singer, who wore a Roberto Cavalli dress for the occasion, is seen taking pride of place in a plush chair while her doting husband caresses her growing baby bump.
Babies on board: Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon hosted a lavish baby shower at the Montage Beverly Hills hotel on Sunday
The venue was decked out in blue and pink balloons - she is set to give birth to a boy and a girl - and no expense was spared in food and decoration.
Guests, included American Idol judge Randy Jackson and CNN's Piers Morgan, were treated to gourmet pizzas, appetizers and banana, chocolate and red velvet cupcakes.
Napkins, servers' aprons and other items were emblazoned with the couples' names and pictures of baby carriages.

'Nick and I were so grateful to everyone who came with us to celebrate,' she told America's Life & Style magazine.
'There was a lot of love in the room, and to top it off, fans from more than 50 countries sent well-wishes in a book they made for our twins titled Always Be My Babies.
'It was a night I will never forget.'
Cannon is said to have also enjoyed the shower, with a close friend of the couple, describing him as 'very loving'.
'Seeing them together as a couple they’re very loving with each other and you can just feel the excitement between them over the babies,' Stefano Zagni told Radar online.
'During the baby shower Nick was running around with his camera taking lots of pictures but every two or three minutes he would go over to check on Mariah and see if she was okay.
'He dotes on her. They completely adore each other and are so much in love.
'I just think they’re going to be the perfect family. I really do. I think they’re going to make great parents. They’re going to be very loving and hands-on.'
Mariah is expected to give birth in at the end of April.For more visit www.lifeandstylemag.com
