It’s a boy and a girl for Mariah Carey and husband Nick Cannon! “It’s all about pink and blue these days,” a friend of the couple tells Life & Style. “It’s truly going to be a dream come true for them. They get a son and daughter.”
Mariah is over the moon with excitement. “Even before we announced it was twins, I was trying to keep everything genderneutral because I didn’t want to impose an identity on them too soon,” Mariah tells Life & Style. “There were fan contests on Twitter about what gender they are and rumors about them being two boys or two girls — but nobody guessed this!”
Late last year, Nick revealed that the couple were having twins. “In order for my wife and I to have our life, we need to be up front and I need to be able to share things with you and be real,” he said. “I didn’t even tell my wife I was gonna do this. I’m probably gonna get yelled at for not getting permission. We’re having twins!”
They happy couple are set to welcome their bundles of joy in April. “It’s been a long journey—but a happy one,” says the mom-to-be.
