Mariah Carey’s pregnancy is confirmed, as reported at People. “Yes, we are pregnant. This is true,” said Carey. The 40-year-old Pop/R&B singer is married to the 30-year-old actor and comedian Nick Cannon.
Mariah Carey is pregnant, but she won’t reveal her due date
Mariah Carey was secret about her pregnancy because she says she’s superstitious. “I appreciate everyone’s well wishes but I am very superstitious. When the time is right, everyone will know,” said Mariah. But when you start to show, like she did during a concert in Singapore, where she tripped on stage, being secretive gets harder. In the video, she looks heavier than usual and she’s wearing a loose fitting t-shirt, not her typical attire and perfect for covering a baby bump.
“It’s weird how the media can get involved with your personal life because even when you want to share something, it’s hard to share the truth – because people already spoiled it,” said Nick Cannon. That’s especially true if you’re pregnant. You can only hide it for so long.
Watching the video, one can guess that Mariah is definitely out of the first trimester. It’s probably safe to say the bundle of joy will be due in the next six months. We can also guess that Carey will reveal the due date when she’s so big she’s ready to burst. “Well, it’s still early. We’re expecting in the spring,” says Carey.
Nick Cannon says the couple doesn’t know the sex of their baby
Mariah Carey is pregnant, but claims she and Nick don’t know the sex of their baby. “If you wish to know the gender of your baby, it can usually be determined by 20 weeks,” as reported at WebMD on prenatal ultrasound. Twenty weeks is approximately 5 months and Carey, if she’s telling the truth, is far from five months along. In addition, not every woman gets an ultrasound during her pregnancy, and not every woman wants to know the sex of her baby before the baby is born.
