Is Mariah Carey pregnant? Speculation is rabid. The singer may have fallen on stage while pregnant, as reported at N Y Daily News. However, if the 40-year-old singer, who is married to Nick Cannon, is pregnant, she’s not letting anyone know it. Carey pulled out of Tyler Perry’s For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf under doctor’s orders and has kept her stomach hidden lately. However, there are signs.
Mariah Carey may be pregnant as shown in a Singapore video
In response to the June 2010 article, If Mariah Carey is Pregnant, Why is This a Secret?, one commenter wrote, “She is rumored to have a baby bump because she didn’t get out of the car when she and Nick went for a drive. But nobody has actually seen it, even the papz are merely speculating about that. If it were 100% sure those pictures would be all over the net by now.” Possibly, but now, in September of 2010, Mariah’s appearance makes one wonder.
In Singapore, Mariah Carey tripped on stage and had to be helped up by back-up dancers. But if you look at her body, in the video found at N Y Daily News, she may indeed be pregnant. Mariah appears to have put on weight since recent past and she performs for a Singapore audience in a loose fitting t-shirt, perfect for covering up a baby bump.
There’s another sign
The most suspicious sign that Mariah Carey is pregnant is what Mariah Carey said herself, “I appreciate everyone’s well wishes but I am very superstitious. When the time is right, everyone will know.” So, when Mariah Carey is far enough along in her pregnancy, she’ll let the world know?
Mariah Carey may be superstitious, but what she may be doing is what many other mothers do. As reported at About.com, a couple of disadvantages to telling early, “Good news travels fast, you may not be the first to tell someone” and, “If you miscarry everyone knew you were pregnant.” This applies very well to a celebrity. If Mariah Carey is pregnant and she makes the formal announcement, it will spread like wild fire through the press. However, if she were to have an unfortunate miscarriage, that news would spread like wild fire too.
