Today she let the cat out of the bag (although most already thought so). [lastfm]Mariah Carey[/lastfm] and hubby Nick Cannon are expecting a baby. They don’t know the sex, but there was a surprise reason they waited to talk!
In an exclusive interview with “Access Hollywood” host Billy Bush, Mariah Carey confirms, “yes we are pregnant, this is true!”
Mariah told Bush…
It’s been a long journey, but it’s been tough because I’ve been trying to have … to hold onto a shred of privacy. And that was not easy. It’s still early, I’m expecting in the spring, I’ll say that. I don’t want to give too much of like, specific outlines.
Carey chose to share the happy news now because her new album, “Merry Christmas 2 U” drops next week. Her husband Nick Cannon, who was also on hand for the interview, describes the journey as an emotional one.
Uh, it’s absolutely emotional, but first, so many reasons I mean obviously the greatest gift on earth is a child, but … you know how much we have been through, you know.
Cannon is referring to something that’s not been made public until now, that Carey suffered a miscarriage.
Two years ago, shortly after the couple’s secret wedding, Carey and Cannon were in Monte Carlo for the World Music Awards when Carey took a pregnancy test, and it turned out to be positive. “Only one person knew about this and we were like, um, ‘let’s not tell anybody else,'” Carey said.
Wish them all the best!!!!!!
