Mariah Carey's favourite baby shower present was a book made by her fans.

The singer was lavished with gifts at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills on Sunday (06.03.11), and most appreciated the book created by fans, whom she refers to as 'Lambs', from around the world.

Mariah - who is expecting a twin boy and girl with husband Nick Cannon - wrote on her website: "Still haven't really opened all the gifts but seeing so many people who came from all over the world to be there with us was the BEST gift we could ask for!

"The 'Always Be My Babies' 'Lamb Book' is definitely my new prized possession and I can't thank the Lambs around the world enough for your letters and well wishes."

The book's cover shows a blue and a Pink baby carriage and has family photos of the 'Hero' singer and Nick. Inside are short letters and poems her fans have written to the babies.

Mariah, 41, added: "We so had a 'moment' in the middle of the shower when they presented the book to me and everyone thought it was the cutest, most thoughtful thing ever!

"It was the best moment of the night. I can't wait for the twins to read the messages and feel the love!"

Other gifts Mariah received included two giant stuffed giraffes, a pair of handmade chairs and a $2,000 custom-made bedding set for a crib.
