Mariah Carey is ready to put the heels back on and trim down, the multi-platinum superstar told Life & Style magazine in this Friday's issue. According to Carey, motherhood is "the hardest thing in the world."

"I feel like, in a lot of ways, children come into the world to teach us. It’s going to be a delicate balance between raising them around glitz and glamour and keeping them grounded. One thing I’m sure of is that I’ll be grateful for the twins every day, no matter what,” said the mom-to-be.

You can say that again. A quick glance at twin's luxurious nursery confirms that these kids will be lapping it up. The room was designed using inspiration from two of Mimi fans' most favorite songs.

“The ceiling has orangey-pink clouds in a blue sky with golden starstwinkling. It’s based on two songs I wrote that are fan favorites: ‘Underneaththe Stars’ and ‘Close My Eyes. Sometimes I just sit in the nursery and stare atthe ceiling because I love it so much. To me, it symbolizes wanting my childrento dream as big as possible and to let their imaginations be unbridled.”
