Nick Cannon has confirmed his wife Mariah Carey is pregnant with twins.
The singer said on his radio show: “I haven’t even told my wife I’m doing this so I’m probably gonna get yelled at for not getting permission… We are having twins!”
Mariah’s growing bump had been the subject of intense media speculation since she accidentally referred to her unborn baby as ‘they’ during an interview.
Her publicist confirmed the news soon after Nick’s announcement.
Nick also told listeners that the Obamas were the first people to hear the couple’s good news when they filmed ‘Christmas in Washington.’
Mariah and Nick tied the knot in a secret ceremony in 2008 after a whirlwind one-month romance. The singer announced her pregnancy in October.
