London: Singer Mariah Carey is spending all her time these days reading as much as she can about pregnancy and babies to prepare herself for the birth of her first child.
The `Hero` singer, who finally confirmed last week she is expecting her first child with husband Nick Cannon, is determined to learn as much possible about motherhood and has completely changed her eating habits, reported Contactmusic.
"Mariah has turned ultra health conscious. There is nothing unhealthy in the house. No junk food, no alcohol, nothing. Nick is making sure she has everything she needs including fetching her just about every book on babies and pregnancy ever written. Mariah is 40 and she`s leaving nothing to chance," said a source.
Cannon recently said he is doing his best to persuade his wife to ditch her favourite high-heeled shoes in favour of something more comfortable during her pregnancy, and is planning to buy her some flats.
"I come home yesterday to help my wife get ready for her video shoots and she has these 19-inch heels on. So I go into the closet searching for some flats for my wife. She got a lot of damn shoes - it`s like a Macy`s. And Mariah Carey does not own one pair of flat shoes," he said.
