With the couple’s twins due any day now Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey decided to commemorate the pregnancy with some nude photos. Tasteful, artistic nudes, of course. They’re set to be published this week in Life & Style Magazine.
However, Nick is having second thoughts about the photos. He said as much on the radio yesterday.
“My children are going to have to see these pictures,” the 30-year-old radio personality said Tuesday on his show, Rollin’ with Nick Cannon. “It’s a little weird, it’s a little nasty: I mean, have you ever seen your parents naked. When they get older and their friends come over, they will see the pictures and say, ‘Your daddy’s butt naked,'” Cannon said. “I don’t want my naked booty out there for everyone to see!”
Babble’s Ceridwen Morris wrote about getting naked for photo shoots while pregnant earlier this week after she interviewed Alexa Garbarino, the photographer behind a new book of nude pregnant portraits, “Ripe.”
I would never do a nude pregnancy photo shoot, not because I’m worried about my kiddos checking out my naked ass, but because it’s just not my speed. Although I think Mariah is absolutely beautiful on the cover of Life & Style and Garbarino’s photography is lovely, I still think the naked pregnancy photos are a little tacky. I’m all for celebrating the beauty of pregnancy but I just don’t get the whole standing-naked-and-pregnant-on-the-Brooklyn-Bridge thing. Or husband and wife nude, clutching each other in an uber serious pose.
And who could forget this blog?
But what about you? Do you go in for that sort of thing? And if so, would it bother you to have your kids checking ’em out later on down the line?
