Mariah Carey Is Pregnant!

Mariah Carey Is Pregnant!

It’s the news we’ve all been hoping for: Mariah Carey has confirmed her pregnancy!

Us reports that early Thursday morning (October 28), on NBC’s Today show, in a preview for her three-part interview with Access Hollywood, the soulful singer finally revealed to her fans that she and hubby Nick Cannon are expecting their first child.

Yes, we are pregnant. It is true. It’s been a long journey. It’s been tough because I’ve been trying to hold on to a shred of privacy.

In the interview, the 41-year-old mom-to-be revealed that she had a miscarriage soon after marrying Nick in 2008: “It kind of shook us both and took us into a place that was really dark and difficult. When that happened… I wasn’t even able to talk to anyone about it. That was not easy.”

“It definitely brought us closer together,” added Nick. “It strengthened our relationship so much… She handled it so well.”

Rumours of Mariah’s possible pregnancy have been circling since May after the star dropped out of Tyler Perry’s For Coloured Girls by recommendation of her doctor. Around that time, she was also spotted wearing a maternity dress on an outing in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

The couple did their best to pacify the rumour mill until they were ready to announce the news. During an August broadcast of his radio show, Nick told his listeners: “I’ve said it before and I’ll say it time and time again – when my wife feels like talking about whatever she wants to talk about, you will hear it directly from her.”

Mariah has informed fans that she is due in the springtime, but did not divulge an exact date. She also said that she and her husband have no plans to learn the sex of their first child.

We send our heartfelt congratulations to Mariah and Nick!

    E! News on TV announced Tuesday evening on their show that she had confirmed it to them. I’m surprised it took until now for the rest of the media to pick it up. The baby is supposed to be here by spring.

    Congrats to MC & Nick.

    Congrats to Mariah and Nick though I don’t blame them for being skittish to announce it. because she’s had at least one miscarriage previously and that makes it harder to open your heart to the idea of pregnancy again or having it actually end in a healthy safe birth.

    god bless them and may she have a healthy rest of her pregnancy

    Sad about the miscarriage, but that explains why she married someone she knew for about ten seconds.

      Actually, Mariah said they didn’t even know about her first pregnancy until after they got married.

    “The news we’ve all been hoping for”? Really? Do you know her personally? Why would anyone be so invested that they “hope” for pregnancies for people they don’t even know? Such a bizarre thing to say.

    Nick kept talking about it. They both love the attention. I’m sure we will hear about this pregnancy and baby endlessly. And, oh, what a coincidence, her new album is coming out soon.

  • Courtney

    uh they actually knew each-other for more than two years from when he gave her an award at the teen choice awards for the album the Emancipation of Mimi. I met her once she’s a really sweet person and has always loved children. it’s natural to hope your favorite stars have children when their happy and secure with the person they love.
