Mariah Carey Confirms Pregnancy

Mariah Carey

After months of “is she or isn’t she,” Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have announced that they are expecting their first child together. “Yes, we are pregnant. This is true,” confirmed Mimi this morning on the “Today” show, an advance look at a three-part “Access Hollywood” interview.

“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,” she continued.

The couple stayed mum on the exact date they’re expecting, but Mariah revealed that it will be some time in the spring. “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,” she said.

“The greatest gift on Earth is a child,” chimed Cannon, who sat in on the interview and referred to the pregnancy as “absolutely emotional” news. “I mean obviously the greatest gift on Earth is a child,” he continued. “But … you know how much we have been through, you know.”

This is the second time that Mimi and Nick have conceived a child, having previously kept a pregnancy and miscarriage secret from the world. “It was really sad so we had to just, we had really to absorb this and take it in,” Carey said of her misfortune two years ago. Cannon added, “And that’s what I said, like her strength would literally be during the day so festive and smiling obviously for cameras and spending time with everyone and you know, literally that night crying herself to sleep.”

On the musical front, Mariah will give birth to another baby, her second Christmas album Merry Christmas II You, next week.

    “If God chooses to do that to me, then that would pphaen; other than that, I don’t think we would try for that ever again,” I know what she means. I went through 3 years of infertility and finally got pregnant on our second attempt at an IUI. I cannot and will not put myself through the heartache and pain of trying to conceive. I am blessed to have a beautiful daughter and if I am meant to have another child, it will pphaen on it’s own.
