Mariah Carey Confirms Pregnancy!
It's true! Mariah & hubby Nick Cannon ARE expecting their first child...
Ending months of speculation, including allegations this week that she was pregnant with a baby boy, Carey has now confirmed the rumours.
Speaking to Access Hollywood, the 40-year old diva revealed: "Yes, we are pregnant, this is true! It's been a long journey."
Mariah added: "It's been tough because I've been trying to hold on to a shred of privacy. At this point, there is no choice. I either talk or I hibernate,"
The Butterfly singer also confessed that a miscarriage she suffered almost two years ago has made her relationship with Nick stronger, adding: "It kind of shook us both and took us into a place that was really dark and difficult,"
Carey continued. "When that happened... I wasn't able to even talk to anybody about it. That was not easy."
Cannon agreed: "It definitely brought us closer together. It strengthened our relationship so much. She handled it so well.”
The America's Got Talent host also confessed that the pair have already chosen a name for their baby, which is due to arrive next Spring.
Nick stated: "The greatest gift on earth is a child. We’ve had names picked out from the first day we met and we want to stay true to that."
A big congratulations from MTV!
