Did Mariah Carey let it slip that she is expecting twins?


I think we put this in the links a few days ago, but it’s worth noting again – Mariah Carey MAY have let it slip that she’s expecting twins. She’s being vague, and she wants everyone to speculate, of course. She’s MARIAH. She’s always the most important person, topic, etc. Anyway, Mariah was tweeting something about her pregnancy and her Christmas special (on NBC), and she wrote “I just hope that they don’t turn out hating Christmas!” Oh, MIMI.

Are there two—or more?—mini-Mariah Careys on the way?

The 40-year-old singer, who recently announced that she and husband Nick Cannon are expecting, spoke with Radio Disney’s Ernie D. to promote her new holiday CD, Merry Christmas II You, on Tuesday, and while explaining that she sings songs from her new album to her baby bump, Carey let slip wit an offhand statement that will no doubt launch 1,000 rumors: “I just hope that they don’t turn out hating Christmas!”

“They”? Very interesting. Cannon, who normally is quite active on Twitter regarding personal matters, has been radio silent on the issue … likely holding any big reveals or denials for his own radio show.

It’s perfectly possible that Mariah is expecting twins – I’m pretty certain that she got pregnant using some kind of fertility drugs or maybe even IVF, both of which can lead to multiples. Here’s a thought: what if it’s twin girls? How awesome and amazing would that be?

    Actually just the fact that she is over 40 means she is more likely to be expecting twins. Add whatever methods she took and I am betting there is a high chance it’s twins.

  2. krissy says:

    I think she was just using they as a substitute for he/she since she doesn’t know the sex of the baby. Its grammatically incorrect but people do that all the time.

  3. Kristin says:

    Actually, I think she may have been saying “they” because she didn’t want to give away the gender and/or she doesn’t know the gender. It’s a little lazier than saying “I hope he or she doesn’t end up hating Christmas!” and I think she might have said “they” because she couldn’t figure out what pronoun to use.

  5. Sam says:

    Could just be the use of a non-gender pronoun. She might not know the sex of the baby and rather than call the baby ‘it’, she said ‘they’.

  6. Kaiser says:

    krissy, Kristin & sam – Yes, that is totally a possibility. But I prefer to think that she’s expecting twins Butterfly Magical Caramel and Princess Bianca Dandelion.

  7. Jacquie says:

    I agree saying “it” always made me feel weird. “They” can be used as a singular form. BUT if she is expecting twins, good for them, get it done in one shot I say!

  8. The_Porscha says:

    Kaiser – if that woman has twins that’s going to be the pinkest house since Barbie’s Dream Home. I actually hope that’s the case. I love Mimi, for all of her ridiculous fontrum and self-absorption, I think she’s hilarious and kitschy. I’m sure her kid(s), regardless of gender, will be little dolls.

  9. Delta Juliet says:

    Of course she will have twins. Isn’t that how all celebrities do it these days?

  10. lilred says:

    Lol@ Butterfly Magical Caramel and Princess Bianca Dandelion. My new favorite celeb baby names.

  11. Sigh. says:

    I’m gonna go with Rainbow Glitter Sunshine and Candy Snowflake Buttercup Carey Cannon, for possible twin girls names.

    EDIT: You KNOW she can put the Geldof Girls’ names to shame. “Peaches?” Pffttt! Lightweight.

  12. mel says:

    Is Mariah disconnected to her family. You rarely hear about them. Maybe she pays them to stay out of the media.

  13. Schnauzers!!! says:

    Oh I am so excited to hear about these little bundles of joy!!
    I don’t know why. I’m not Mariahs biggest fan…I had her first CD and love her singing “All I Want For Christmas Is You”. I don’t really know who Nick Cannon is except he seems to love her. So weird as to why I care, but I do! This is the most excited I have been about a celebrity baby since Gwen Stefani had Zuma. LOL

  14. jessica says:

    lol… that dude with camera forehead in the bottom pic.. lol

  15. lulu says:

    I’m a teacher. Of English. And no, you can’t use ‘they’ as a singular form…I’m also a mother of three. And I never used ‘they’ to describe a single baby during my pregnancies. I don’t find ‘it’ offensive as in ‘it’s a boy’ or ‘it’s a girl’. ‘He or she’ isn’t that long or challenging, particularly when you look at all those wonderful suggestions for names and you just know Mariah is going to out-weirdname you ALL.
    Anyway, couldn’t she have said ‘the baby’?
    So I’m going with twins for Mariah….
    But wait, J-Lo did that already! (And Angie, and Bree from Desperate Housewives, and Brooke Mueller…)
    So I’m going with TRIPLETS

  16. REALIST says:

    I’m assuming she must have had IVF. Does any celebrity in their late 30′s-40′s have children one at a time these days? (Kelly Preston is the only exception I can think of)..

    Still, if Mariah has the resources to care for them (and she does), more power to her.

  17. girl says:

    Meh, I think the jury is still out. MC doesn’t come across as some master of the English language and grammar any more than any person on the street so I think that either scenario (trying to avoid gender specific pronouns or twins) is still on the table.

    I just hope baby or babies is/are healthy.

  18. dread pirate cuervo says:

    I’ve only been feeling the love for Mariah since she came down with a case of the babies, but I hope she has twins or triplets or whatever number she’s wishing for. I hope they’re healthy & I bet they’ll be all girls & I bet Nick Cannon will be more overjoyed than overwhelmed. Also, you know Mariah doesn’t have placenta. Those babies are packed in cotton candy & peeps.

  19. Johnny Depp's Girl says:


    Certainly explains why she looks so big so fast.

  20. Camille says:

    I hope its twin boys. :D

  21. Courtney says:

    Uh it’s not so fast she’s over 5 months and no she didn’t use IVF though she did have to take progesterone shots 2 times a day long term after the miscarriage and in her first trimester. yes some celebs in their late 30′s 40′s still have single children each pregnancy Stella McCartney for instance just had her 4th child at 39 an 8lb baby girl named Rieley. though twins are more common in moms over 35 because of more than 1 egg being released each cycle. and who knows they may run in Mariah’s family she does have a right to keep her family out of the public eye if she wants to

  22. Louise says:

    Saying “they” doesn’t mean anything. Mariah could be having twins but it could be a figure of speech.

  23. Bitter fruit says:

    She’s pushing out a litter.

  24. tripmom says:

    Yeah, I can’t see her having twins. EVERYONE has twins now, it’s super trendy. She’d rather be a trendsetter. So I agree with lulu; she’s shooting for triplets.

    We just welcomed natural identical triplet girls. My husband and I joke that we had to have triplets, because twins are so “been there, done that” at this point. We just had to out-do Celine Dion and JLo.

  25. Emily says:

    tripmom, congrats on your girls! That must be a handful! And I agree, I reckon Mariah’s wanting triplets. That way she can dress one in pink, one in purple and one in yellow.

  26. anon33 says:


    PEEPS!! Packed in peeps!!!


  27. Courtney says:

    yeah triplets would be adorable and my guesses on the names would be Patricia Marie Sophie Nicole and Melissa Anne. Pink and Purple have always been her favorite colors why do you think she named her second fragrance luscious pink

  28. House Mouse says:

    We are TOO MANY humans on Earth yet and having twins / being one of a twin pair is stressing. So I hope she’s NOT expecting twins !

  29. slymm27 says:

    @tripmom…wow. Congrats to you and hubby……three babaies!!! That is so scary when i think of the actual childbirth, congrats to you again…… Mariah is going to turn her baby girl into some sort of butterfly or doll, i don’t know what she is going to do if it is a boy though.

  30. Courtney says:

    shut up any child/children are a blessing and to be treated as such. Mariah looks wonderful pregnancy agrees with her she’s going to be a great mom

  31. slymm27 says:

    @courtney….shutup to who exactly???? Confused about your statement.
