Mariah Carey Is Pregnant! (VIDEO)
After months of speculation, fans can finally call her Mama Mariah. With husband Nick Cannon at her side, diva Mariah Carey announced on the Today show Thursday that she is, in fact, expecting her first child.
"Yes we are pregnant," a glowing Mariah told Access Hollywood's Billy Bush. "This is true."
In an interview shot in her posh New York apartment, the singing siren declined to reveal how far along she is, saying, "It's still early. We're expecting in the spring."
The couple also said the sex of their baby will be a big surprise.
Watch Mariah's revelation here:
Clutching Mariah's hand, Nick disclosed that the couple's pregnancy news is particularly special because Mariah suffered a miscarriage two years ago, shortly after their whirlwind courtship and secret wedding.
"It's absolutely emotional... I mean obviously the greatest gift on earth is a child," Cannon said. "But ... you know how much we have been through."
Mr. Mariah said his famous wife would sometimes cry herself to sleep after the miscarriage. That dark time may have prompted the couple's cautiousness in confirming her pregnancy.
As Mariah told Bush: "I've been trying to hold on to a shred of privacy and that was not easy."
Now that the news is out, let the celebration begin! Leave your congrats for Mariah and Nick in the comments.
