As I was watching “The Today Show” (on NBC) this morning, as I normally would, while I get “My Princess” ready for school. I heard them mention that Mariah Carey was going to be on and that she had a huge announcement to make. To my surprise it was a great one.She sat down with Billy Bush the host from Access Hollywood and made her announcement.
Check out the details after the jump, as to what I as well as the rest of the world saw and heard this morning.
Mariah Carey has officially confirmed to “The Today Show” that in fact she is expecting!
Carey said, “You’re the first person, and when I say the first I mean the first. We haven’t spoken to anybody else, but yes it’s true, we are pregnant!”
She didn’t really want to go into specifics as to how far along she is, but she did say, “it’s still early, but we’re expecting in the spring.”
Carey stated that it’s been tough to keep it all under wraps being in the spotlight, but because of her new album, ‘Merry Christmas II You’ (which is being released on Nov. 2), she felt it was time to share the news.
“It was difficult,” says Mariah about her struggles to conceive.
As her husband Nick Cannon entered the room to share the joy, he was congratulated and asked if it’s been emotional for him.
Nick says, “it’s absolutely emotional, but for many reasons. I mean obviously the greatest gift on Earth is a child, but than just the process of all we’ve been through.”
Mariah did mention that back when they first got married on March 30, 2008, and were in Monte Carlo for the World Music Awards, they were asked about being pregnant and they laughed it off. They also to the rumors having them question themselves, so they took a test, in which in fact came out positive. They took a few more to re-check and it turned out they were pregnant.
“Only one person knew about this,” says Mariah.
The joy for them didn’t last very long, when just a bit after a month or so she had suffered a miscarriage.
“It was really sad, so we had to really absorb this and take it in.” “Her strength would literally be during the day so festive, smiling for cameras and spending time with everyone, then later at night crying herself to sleep,” adds Nick.
The sex of the baby is yet to be determined, although there has been speculations that, “It’s A Boy.”
