The pop icon celebrated her 47th birthday in Cabo San Lucas on Monday alongside her friends, family and boyfriend, Bryan Tanaka. Only in Mariah's World, she doesn't have birthdays -- she has epic anniversaries. Case in point: A half-naked Tanaka popping out of a giant cake during last year's festivities.
This year, Carey took a more relaxing route by renting out a private villa in the tropics to celebrate with her nearest and dearest, including her 5-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe.
In a snap posted to Instagram, the singer -- clad in a form-fitting gold sequined dress and sunglasses -- coyly posed behind a pile of gifts and a giant red bow. "Let the anniversary festivities begin," she wrote.
Tanaka posted more pics of the tropical getaway, including a photo of the pair relaxing oceanside with the caption, "Starting the anniversary festivities in a relaxing chic environment. #HappyAnniversary."
The "I Don't" crooner later took to Twitter to thank her fans (and Ellen DeGeneres!) for their outpouring of "anniversary" love, tweeting, "Really moved by all your beautiful #anniversary messages. Thank you my #lambily ILYM!!"
