Radar: Mariah Carey is pregnant, but she & Nick want to keep it a secret


I think Radar must have a source behind the counter at the Hollywood CVS, the one that every celebrity uses to buy their home pregnancy tests, because Radar has another “exclusive” pregnancy story. This time, they’re got it “confirmed” from an unnamed source that Mariah Carey is expecting her first child. The secondary confirmation Radar seems to using is a cryptic non-denial from Mariah’s rep. Honestly, if Mariah wasn’t pregnant, I think her rep would probably say it, so the fact that she won’t does lend some credibility. But this report does stink:

The is-she or isn’t-she speculation is over. RadarOnline.com can exclusively confirm Mariah Carey is pregnant! The 40-year-old pop diva recently dropped out of her next film gig — a role in Tyler Perry’s For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf — fueling rumors that she’s pregnant.

Now a source close to Mariah and husband Nick Cannon tells RadarOnline.com the couple — who renewed their vows to celebrate their second anniversary in May — are at last with their first child.

“They’re both very excited and very happy,” dished our insider.

When contacted, Mariah’s longtime rep Cindi Berger gave RadarOnline.com a rather cryptic comment.

“I’m not at liberty to discuss Mariah’s personal life at this time,” the publicist told RadarOnline.com, a statement that did not outwardly deny the pregnancy.

Said our insider: “Mariah and Nick want to keep the pregnancy quiet as long as they can.”
Which could explain why Mariah never got out of her Rolls Royce convertible during a road trip with Nick along the Malibu coastline on Saturday. She was hiding a baby bump!

Mariah and Nick got married in 2008, after knowing each other only six weeks, at the songstress’ private island in the Bahamas. The two have been inseparable ever since, with this pregnancy now solidifying their rock solid relationship.

Speculation has run rampant about the impending baby since Mariah was spotted with Nick outside an Los Angeles medical clinic in May. Some had suggested the Hero singer had begun hormone enhancement therapy; a possible explanation for a noticeable sudden weight gain. Hormone supplements increase one’s chances of pregnancy and are often linked to in-vitro-fertilization.

Mariah and Nick, who have both talked about wanting to start a family, have neither confirmed or denied the pregnancy talk. But both have hinted, previously, they could soon become parents.

At the Independent Spirit Awards in March, Mariah told the crowd: “Something else very special is on the way!”

Last week, Nick joked he too had a big announcement to make.

“I do want to make a big announcement right here on Daily 10,” he said, “my Jack Russell terrier puppy Cha Cha is pregnant again!”

However, behind the jokes, is a beautiful silver lining. Industry figures had suggested Mariah’s decision to drop out of Perry’s movie was a lost opportunity, given she would have worked alongside Whoopi Goldberg and Janet Jackson. Filming was set to start this month. Instead, Mariah is taking on an even greater role: motherhood!

[From Radar]

If Mariah is pregnant, I couldn’t be happier. It would certainly explain why she dropped out of that movie, it would explain her weight gain, and it would explain why she’s always photographed coming out of medical buildings. But I’m waiting for Mariah to grace us with the happy news. And you know she wants to – she wants to sing about it. She wants to celebrate with us, meaning she will allow us to watch her celebrate. Oh, and Nick – I bet he’s happy too. Both his bitches are pregnant.

    If she is pregnant, I wish her all the best. They seem like a very sweet couple.

  2. nnn says:

    They are growing on me.

    I like them as a couple and even if Mariah is a little weird at times, she has been living a pretty decent life for the past 20 years : few scandals, boyfriends, usually for a long period of times, no arrest, no drug nor alcohol histories, ect.

    She is pretty clean and normal actually.

  3. Carrie says:

    The most amazing part of this story is that when I read that Mariah and Nick have a “rock solid relationship”, I actually paused mid-scoff and realized, hmm…they do, don’t they? Amazingly, Mariah and Nick seem to be pretty damn happy together, pregnancy or not.

    Like other mismatched-on-the-outside couples (Courtney Cox/David Arquette, Demi Moore/Ashton Kutcher, Sasha Baron Cohen/Isla Fisher, to name a few), they seem to be an inexplicably good fit.

  4. That kid is going to be in wonderland! Can you imagine! She loves to spend and spoil – just look at Nick. Wait, if she has her own do youthink she won’t need baby Nick? JUST A JOKE! I am happy for them, that’s awesome!

  5. Fae says:

    I don’t understand how she manages to look so cheap, yet have all that money. And it’s not just occasionally either.

    Believe the baby thing when I see it. Purely because every interview I’ve seen of this woman from the past ten years has made her look delusional and desperate, and I’d hate for some poor child to have to grow up in that.

  6. mel says:

    Kaiser I like that both his bitches are pregnant too! Nick will have his hands full dealing with two pregnant bitches at the same time. lol

  7. Eileen Yover says:

    I guess I am eating crow on this one since I think I gave them a year at most! Good for them!

  8. Brandy Mc says:

    For some reason I think she would be a excellent mom. The kid would be all decked out in hello kitty!

  9. Sparkle says:

    I resent the use of the word bitch to describe Mariah and any woman for that matter. I get the play on words but I don’t appreciate it. Women are not dogs.

  10. imalawyer says:

    @nnn: don’t forget she had that drunken mental break down on TRL with Carson Daily about 10 years ago. Granted she has cleaned up and gotten it together since.

    If she is prego then good for her! Hopefully it’s a girl because a boy being raised in a Hello Kitty room will eventually turn out Hello Kitty gay.

  11. Luci says:

    I dont know why but I think all of this is a publicity stunt

  12. LindyLou says:

    She’s such a diva. If it is true maybe a child will help her get a grip on reality….hmmm – didn’t work for JLo so who knows?

  13. ogechi says:

    The sweetest couple i have seen on TV. Real love and mutual respect. All the best to my girl Mariah.

  14. itzbilebitch says:

    god shes so fat and uglu and who wears heels with sweats i hate her.

  15. Kelbear says:

    I really cannot stand Nick! Hate the way he dresses too.

  16. Dawn says:

    Mariah,if it’s a girl, please don’t name her butterfly or something as in insane.

  17. Tia C says:

    @ Fae: I couldn’t agree with you more, on all counts.

    I will also believe it when it’s officially confirmed. For some reason I don’t think children are in her destiny. Don’t know why, it’s just a vibe I’ve always gotten from her. Motherhood doesn’t seem like a priority for her. Maybe it is now, who knows? We shall see!

  18. bellaluna says:

    Well, I eat my words: I gave them 6 months, but they seem to be happy and true to each other. Sometimes seemingly mismatched couples are the ones who last. My hubby and I couldn’t be more different; I’m 7 years older than he, we were raised completely opposite from one another, and we finish each other’s sentences or say what the other is thinking all the time. Sometimes it just works.

  19. Sigh. says:

    Can you imagine the crazy, pink diamond-studded, ballerina-skirted, butterfly-encrusted, rainbow-inspired, platinum-piped size 0-3 MONTHS clothes she might soon be stuffing a 18 MONTHS OLD daughter into…!

    (If true, please let her have twin girls)

    This is gonna be (higher, dog-whistle octave) awesoooome….

  20. I am happy for Mariah. She seems so comfortable with where she is in life now. I never thought it would work with her and Nick but everytime I see them together , they look like two peas in a pod and they are ALWAYS smiling. When your in love and very happy and your with a man you trust, your not afraid to put on a few pounds ow walk around looking a littles less glamorous than usual. I am happy for her and I can’t wait to see what he baby will look like.

  21. LexiB says:

    Congrats to them both! I wonder what Eminem has to say about it. He will probably release another diss record.
    Again, congrats Nick and Mariah!


  23. remote says:

    If pregnancy rumors are true, she’s probably lining up nannies to care for the baby since she even has people to carry her dresses for her while she’s wearing them. She, diva that I think she is, has assistants for everything– unfortunate she can’t hire someone to go to the birthing process for her. Dressing up her baby in expensive clothing is NOT the essence of loving a child…

  24. anjasmomma says:

    Nick is going crazy on twitter saying
    If & when my wife is ready to make ANY announcements about private matters she will do it personally. Thanks for being respectful GodBless

    My heart goes out to any woman who has to deal with public scrutiny and speculation pertaining to their private life REAL TALK!

    —-part of me thinks she must be definitely pregnant OR having medical problems. My heart does not go out to her as far as dealing with speculation. That is part of celebrity pay. If no one cared she would not be rich.

  25. ol cranky says:

    OMG the tabloids and entertainment press have got to stop dogging celebrity women about possible pregnancies. One of these days they’re going to push some woman who’s not made an announcement because she’s had a miscarriage or other difficulties over the edge

  26. Naomi says:

    The title made me laugh.
    ”Radar: Mariah Carey is pregnant, but she & Nick want to keep it a secret”
    Bit late now. XD

    But if she is, good for her.

  27. Zoe says:

    I hope that Mariah Carey makes a great mother. She’s a bit of a self-centered person.

  28. I’ve been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.
