Nick Cannon broke the news this morning (Dec. 16) that he and wifey Mariah Carey are expecting twins. The news first was speculated when the singer referred to her as “they” leading people to think it was an accident.
“It’s a touchy issue, because you never want to speak on too much stuff too early, but my wife, at one time, she referred to her stomach as ‘they,’ and that probably wasn’t the wrong thing for her to do,” he said to E! News.
MTV reports that Cannon explained to his listeners how the news broke to the Obamas.
“And at this point, she hadn’t told anybody anything because doctors advised us to keep it to ourselves until we get further along,” Cannon recalls of the conversation Carey had with Barack and Michele backstage at TNT’s Christmas in Washington 2010 on Sunday. “And because of the excitement, because of the emotion, she was overwhelmed [and] she shared with the president and first lady that we are having twins.”
The couple has not announced a due date yet.
