London: Pregnant Mariah Carey has revealed that she felt vulnerable posing for a belly-baring photoshoot for a US magazine.

The Hero hitmaker is seen on the cover of the new edition of Life and Style showing off her baby bump, in a pose reminiscent of Demi Moore`s infamous 1991 shoot with Vanity Fair.

Carey, who is expecting twins within weeks, admits she was reluctant to face the camera at such a late stage in her pregnancy, but wanted a visual record of her "once-in-a-lifetime" experience.

"I was feeling very vulnerable about taking pictures at all right now, but then I didn``t want to miss this opportunity to document this once-in-a-lifetime experience. My ultimate goal was to share this incredibly personal moment with my true fans," the Daily Express quoted her as saying.
