Radar: Mariah Carey is four months pregnant & “overjoyed”


Ever since photos of Mariah Carey’s expanding figure came out over the weekend, people have been asking the question, “So, is she knocked up?” Mariah-pregnancy rumors have swirled for months, and Radar even “confirmed” her alleged pregnancy back in the beginning of June. Mariah and Nick still aren’t confirming anything – so Radar just stepped up to “confirm” it again, this time giving a hard number: she’s allegedly four months pregnant. Sure. I’ll buy that.

Mariah Carey is four months pregnant, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively. The Hero singer and husband Nick Cannon are overjoyed but have decided not to talk about the pregnancy publicly.

Privately, however, it’s a different story, according to one source who tells RadarOnline.com that Nick is sharing the great news with close friends only. On Monday, Nick again dodged the pregnancy question.

“I’ve said it before and I’ll say it time and time again — when my wife feels like talking about whatever she wants to talk about, you will hear it directly from her,” he said on his radio show on New York’s 92.3 FM.

Despite his public hesitation to confirm the news, RadarOnline.com’s insider says, “Nick has been telling friends how excited he is to be a dad.”

“Mariah has tried so hard to get pregnant,” a source told RadarOnline.com, adding that the singer has no plans to announce her pregnancy in the near future. The source adds that Mariah has passed the four month mark in her pregnancy.

Mariah performed in Brazil last weekend, and her appearance had many speculating that she is pregnant. After her show she Tweeted: “Seriously, I really do love it here, beautiful people inside and out! Tonite was tuff 4 me 4 personal reasons,but U got me thru!L4L.”

“She definitely wanted to get pregnant,” the source added. “She’s very excited. She wants to wait as close to full term as possible before going public with the news to her fans.”

I’ve said it before – I think Mariah is actually knocked up, and I think she probably had to go through months of fertility treatments. I think that’s why she gained weight, and I think that’s why she and Nick are playing coy with the confirmation – I think they just want to wait a big longer to confirm it. I also think Mariah isn’t going to have one of those Gisele pregnancies, where she only gains 30 pounds. I think Mariah is going all-out and Nick is probably encouraging it. Bless them.

By the way, there is also this video from Mariah’s Brazilian performance. Some are saying that the baby bump can be seen more clearly in motion:

    Awww I hope they are having a baby together. They are adorable together and seem pretty stable together. :) Good for them!

  2. Strawberry says:

    I would bet all the chips in Vegas she’s pregnant.

  3. Leticia says:

    I hope this couple makes it, I really do. It is wonderful how he adores her.

  4. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    I actually like her, and I think they have a happy marriage. Good for them if the story is true.

  5. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    I wanna wait until its confirmed by Nick or Mariah. It seems to be what they both want and I hope they get it. With Mariah’s age it must so touch and go for them.

  6. aenflex says:

    Yes I agree – glad they are having a baby and I’m glad she waited until her life issues were passed before she tried to become a mom.

  7. Kaboom says:

    Looks more like 11 months.

  8. irishserra says:

    You can tell she is having fun with all of the speculation. I like how she very skillfully pulls her jacket out and open and runs her hand over her belly.

    Diva. :o )

  9. Aww so cute! I’m so happy fo them! and the baby must be doing something good for her voice to because her concert in Brazil was the best she’s sounded live in ages ^_^

  10. TQB says:

    I’ll go with the flow here – I hope she is preggers, and I hope these two last. I simply love the way he looks at her, like she’s the most amazing thing on earth. Every photo of her since they met she is beaming. Also, we share a wedding date, and I like to think it was a good day to get hitched ;) .

  11. Ме says:

    if she is 200 pounds (100 of which in her chin alone) when four months pregnant can someone calculate how much she’ll be at month nine?! please?!

  12. Raven says:

    I can’t picture her as a parent. She’s so self absorbed. I hope if she has a child she realizes it is a real human and not a fashion doll to play with and dress up until she gets tired of it.

  13. kelbear says:

    I can’t stand Nick but always appreciate a couple wanting to have a baby so good for them and good luck! And I agree with everything Raven said.

  14. artista says:

    I hope it’s fat and Nick gets a backbone.

  15. LindyLou says:

    Wow, what’s she gonna look like 4 or 5 months from now? They’ll have to knock down a wall to get her out of the house lol

  16. meme says:

    MOOOOOOOOOOOOORIAH is going to be HUGE in her final trimester. But good for them. They seem happy though I think she’ll be a crappy mother.

  17. jzhz says:

    Damn, you can’t even gain weight when you’re pregnant anymore. Wow.

    I hope she has a successful pregnancy and that they’re very happy together!

  18. Aqua says:

    If it’s true I’m happy for the both of them. They seem to adore each other, you always see how much they do, when they are out in public. The baby will be absolutely adorable.

    Having a baby does change ones priority.

  19. Audra says:

    I’m happy for them. Though Mariah is a huge DIVA, Nick seems so nice, he kinda “balances” her out. Good luck to them!

  20. Sumodo1 says:

    Fertility treatments blow you up! If she is pregnant, she looks well into the 4th month and carrying high. Probably a girl.

  21. TG says:

    I too agree with Raven, but look forward to seeing how cute that kid will be, might even rival Halle’s little princess.

  22. Maritza says:

    That is great news for them, I wish them the best.

  23. BrandyMc says:

    Okay, I am 5 1/2 months pregnant and from the video she does have some roundness to her middle that does not turn into fat rolls when she bends, so I am guessing YES she is.

  24. original kate says:

    congrats. but i can’t see mariah as a mother, either. then again, i had a hard time picturing jennifer lopez as a mommy, but she seems happy enough.

  25. Glyrics says:

    All the best for Mimi & Nick!

  26. Listerino says:

    I’ve never been a Mariah fan but she and and Nick seem very much in love and cute together and I really wish them the best and hope that their marriage lasts.
    And if she is pregnant I hope everything goes well.

  27. Belle Epoch says:

    Ditto #13, Raven – just wait until she finds out that babies GROW UP.

  28. Sassy says:

    Can’t stand Mariah but like Nick. I do wish them the very best, though. :)

  29. SammyHammy says:

    Ah, if that’s what they want, then I hope it’s true for them. They certainly have the resources to give a child a great life.

  30. Tia C says:

    I’ve never been a fan of her singing. Well, if she stays in her lower ranges she’s OK, but she’s never going to be my favorite singer. However, I LOVED her recent performance in “Precious” and it caused me to look at her in a new light and realize that she has more than one screechy dimension.

    Congrats to them if this is true, and I hope she takes it easy!!

  31. Taya says:

    I have a feeling that Mariah will gain around 60+ pounds with this pregnancy. Not because she has too, but because she will eat everything in her way. She will be close to 260 or more when she gives birth. Not being mean, just saying that would not be healthy, especially with just one baby in the oven. I see a future C-section.

    Wish them the best.

  32. Camille says:

    She is going to get as big as a house. Good luck with that Mimoo!

    I also agree with you Raven.

  33. Incognita says:

    If the rumors are true, congratulations Nick and Mariah! Although Mariah grates on me at times, I am pulling for her and Nick to go the distance.

  34. photo jojo says:

    She’s a nutjob, but ya gotta love her.

  35. Tia says:

    poor poor baby will be so self conscious his or her whole life. They will have to be perfect and thin their whole life… poor little being..

  36. Courtney says:

    gaining alot of weight with a first/first successful pregnancy isn’t auncommon. cut Mariah some slack she’s supersticious about announcing this because she’s had a miscarriage scare before. her and Nick will be good parents they love each-other dearly. Nick has always reminded me of Roald Dahl without the rotten streak I don’t know why. god forbid Mariah ever went through what his former wife academy award winner Patricia Neal did while she was pregnant with their youngest child Lucy in 1965 with the nearly crippling strokes that could’ve killed her and the baby and at one point it was eroneously reported in the Los Angeles times that she had died but due in part to his slave driver mentality and her own tenacity she lived for 45 more years when she had those strokes it was after the first day of filming John Ford’s last movie 7 women in which she was replaced by her dear friend Anne Bancroft who also replaced her in Mike Nichols the Graduate after the strokes.

  37. trashaddict says:

    If she goes the rate she is going now I worry her blood pressure will shoot up and she’ll get preeclampsia.
    She needs to eat healthier for the sake of that baby they want so much. Wish them well but am guiltily looking forward to the battle of the baby divas between J. Lo’s and her kids.

    i bet she is, she rubs her stomach early on in the video
