It's time to exhale.
As Whitney Houston celebrates her 47th birthday Monday, shocking new photos have surfaced of the once svelte singer showing off a fuller figure on the beach in the Bahamas, and RadarOnline.com has the new pics.
The Grammy Award winning Houston - who launched a singing comeback earlier this year to mixed reviews - was snapped this weekend in a white swimsuit at the posh Atlantis Paradise Island resort in Nassau, where she's vacationing with her 17-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina and friends.
Despite her well-publicized troubles - including addiction and a failed marriage to singer Bobby Brown - the I Look To You singer has had a remarkable career.
She remains one of the world's best-selling music artists, having sold more than 180 million albums and singles. Rolling Stone named her one of The 100 Greatest Singers Of All Time and in 2008, Billboard ranked her as number 9 on its list of the Hot 100 All-Time Top Artists in celebration of its 50th anniversary.
