London: Singer Mariah Carey and her husband Nick Cannon have reportedly converted an entire wing in their Beverly Hills home into a nursery for their unborn twins.

The couple is sparing no expense in making the babies` surroundings as comfortable as possible.

"Mariah and Nick have converted a whole wing of their Beverly Hills house into a luxury nursery," a website quoted a source as saying.

"Mariah wanted 18-carat gold trim with ivory walls, soft furnishings and walk-in wardrobes full of Petit Tresor designer clothes. There`s a top-of-the-range sound system and they`ll each have diamond-encrusted iPods and a flatscreen TV that comes down from the ceiling."

Among the items the couple has splashed out on are Chelsea sleigh cribs costing $2,200 each and a Clara changing table, which has a price tag of $2,800. The nursery will also be furnished with $2,270 Glam Glider chairs for Mariah and Nick and a $1 million sofa.

"Mariah and her designer Kenneth Bordewick are overseeing every detail. There`s a $1 million red-crushed velvet, 24-carat gold and onyx sofa used for Michael Jackson`s shows. It`s very `Alice in Wonderland` with swags on the back," the source added.

"It might seem over the top, but Mariah has waited a long time for her baby dreams to come true and she says the twins will be the most spoilt kids on the planet."
