Hit singer Mariah Carey and husband slash rapper (slash tv host) Nick Cannon, have finally confirmed the many rumors that they are expecting their first child together.
"It's been a long journey, Carey said, "but it's been tough because I've been trying to have, like I said, to hold onto a shred of privacy, and that was not easy." Carey added that the baby is due in the spring, though she declined to give a specific date. Rumors of of a pregnant Carey have surfaced and re-surfaced since 2008, when the star married Cannon in a surprise ceremony. At the time, the couple said, Carey was not pregnant, but that soon changed. 'We took the test and it was positive, and we were like, is this real?' Carey said. A little over a month later, however, Carey had a miscarriage. "It was really sad, so we just really had to absorb this and take it in," she explained, while Cannon noted her strength to "be during the day so festive, smiling for cameras and spending time with everyone, and then literally at night, crying herself to sleep."
