A very pregnant Mariah Carey went to the hospital Saturday, her birthday, with contractions that turned out to be a false alarm -- then on Sunday she had a little fun decorating her belly in anticipation of the real arrival of the boy and girl she’s calling ‘#dembabies.’

Carey posted the picture of her butterfly-emblazoned belly via Twitter on Monday, captioning it, ‘My attempt @ festiveness on 327! ... Comin soon #dembabies! ... thanx 4 making me happy.’


‘So #dembabies really wanted 2 celebrate w/us/share the anniversary! I started having contractions last night..went 2 the hospital,’ the singer tweeted shortly after midnight Sunday, adding that the hospital ‘said I could come home after they got it under control.’

Her twins with Nick Cannon aren’t due for another two weeks or so, she tweeted. And for those who might be wondering, the couple’s wedding anniversary is actually April 30 -- it’ll be three years next month. She was apparently referring to the anniversary of her birth.

Hey, the lady’s pregnant, OK?
