Mariah Joins 'Idol'
FOX officially announced the singer as one of its new judges.
Mariah Carey and her adorable little daughter beat the heat in Hollywood while looking super cute at the same time.

The newest American Idol judge posted a picture to Instagram of herself and baby Monroe splish splashing by the pool on Sunday.

“As per your request, me & ms. Monroe on a lazy day: )” Carey wrote.

How did the pop diva deflect the rays?

Donning a white see-through kaftan over a black-fringed bikini, Carey, 42, showed off her super toned body.

To ensure maintains her youthful looks, Carey kept her face shaded with a large straw hat.

Carey’s 16-month-old Monroe splashing around in a blowup chair with a canopy.

The pop singer has certainly earned a bit of R&R by the pool, last week she landed herself a multi-million dollar deal to judge American Idol  and also released her newest track, Triumphant.
