After giving birth to twins Moroccan and Monroe last year, she embarked on a strict diet that saw her shed an incredible 70 lbs.
And superstar Mariah Carey is keen to show off the results. She poured her newly slim figure into a curve-hugging nude gown with black embellishment at the BET awards on Saturday.
The 42-year-old looked stunning as she stepped out with husband Nick Cannon, who is recovering from kidney failure which saw him hospitalised.
She was there to pick up an award for Best Entertainer, which she tearily accepted from Nick and their tuxedo-clad son Moroccan.
The little one’s twin sister, Monroe, remained backstage for a good reason, Mariah revealed.
"We were both sewn into our dresses, so she couldn't make it out," she quipped.
"She's heavy. She's a diva like her mama,” Nick added.
The BET awards celebrate African Americans and other minorities in music, acting, sports, and other fields of entertainment.
