Mariah Carey is definitely pregnant! She confirmed on The Today Show that she was indeed with child, and while she was happy to share the good news, she was clearly reluctant to share too many details since it was still so early in the pregnancy.
Carey, 40, admitted that she was due sometime in the spring, but says she did not want to know if it was a boy or a girl ahead of time.
The pop diva has good reason to be nervous. She and her husband Nick Cannon suffered a miscarriage early in their marriage, made only that more difficult by the intense media scrutiny and obsession with her baby bump. "It's been a long journey, but it's been tough because I have been trying to hold on to a shred of privacy and that was not easy," said Carey.
"It was hard because we'd be out with a bunch of people and then come home and cry ourselves to sleep," Cannon admitted. "It was tough."
All the rumors about Carey receiving fertility treatments seem to be false. The couple says they were blessed to conceive naturally.
Congrats to Mariah and Nick! We're so happy that their dream is finally coming true.
