CONFIRMED: Mariah Carey is Having Twins!

Either Nick Cannon is really trying to mess with the media or he just totally confirmed what we've suspected all along: That Mariah Carey is expecting twins!

In a recent interview with E! News he was asked directly about both the sex of the child (a question he handily evaded) and about the rumors circulating that his wife was expecting multiples. His response?

"It's a touchy issue, because you never want to speak on too much stuff too early, but my wife, at one time, she referred to her stomach as 'they' and that probably wasn't the wrong thing for her to do," he revealed. "That's all I'm gonna say."

On his radio show this morning, Cannon confirmed the news for good, telling listeners that they were trying to keep the good news under wraps until the President intervened. Apparently, at the taping of TNT's Christmas in Washington 2010 on Sunday, President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama asked what they were expecting and if they were having twins. 

"And at this point she hadn't told anybody anything because doctors advised us to keep it to ourselves until we get further along," he said on his 92.3 Rollin' With Nick Cannon radio show. "And because of the excitement, because of the emotion, she was overwhelmed [and] she shared with the President and First Lady that we are having twins."

I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
