Mariah Carey Announces Pregnancy

Mariah-CareyCelebrity couple Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey have announced that they are expecting their first child sometime spring next year.

“Yes, we are pregnant. This is true,” Carey, 40, said. “It’s been a long journey. It’s been tough because I’ve been trying to hold on to a shred of privacy.”

Rumors that she is pregnant has been abound since May when she dropped out of a film because doctors advised her to do so. Then in August, she was photographed in a maternity dress in Brazil.

The couple also told about a “dark time” they went though in 2008. It was learned that Carey suffered a miscarriage back then.

The announcement came in a snippet inĀ Today show, which is actually a part of an interview with Access Hollywood.

Cannon, 30, said this about the pregnancy, “The greatest gift on earth is a child.”

They said that they will still keep the actual due date a secret but they also said that they still don’t know the sex of the baby.
