Mariah Carey finally reveals she's pregnant



We can all finally call of the Mariah Carey babywatch; Mimi has revealed to Access Hollywood that yes, she and Nick Cannon are having a baby. Please stop poring over photographs of her trying to determine if she's with child or just getting fat.

"Yes, we are pregnant, this is true!" she told Billy Bush about the baby, which is due in the spring (watch the video above). "It’s been a long journey. It’s been tough because I’ve been trying to hold on to a shred of privacy. ... At this point, there is no choice. I either talk or I hibernate."

We don't mean to joke too much, as Mariah, 41, and Nick, 29, tried to have children two years ago, but that pregnancy ended in a terrible miscarriage, so we can understand her hesitancy.

"It kind of shook us both and took us into a place that was really dark and difficult," Carey said. "When that happened … I wasn’t able to even talk to anybody about it. That was not easy."

But Nick says their resolve to have a child only grew stronger: "It definitely brought us closer together. It strengthened our relationship so much … She handled it so well." Now we can get back to guessing the baby names they've had picked out since they first met.
