Nick Cannon says babies with Mariah is “like the only priority in life”


Mariah Carey has been the victim of a whirlwind of pregnancy rumors every since she married Nick Cannon. I’ve even fallen for it a few times, thinking that this or that report was probably true, and I keep waiting for the announcement. However, at this point it seems to me like Mariah isn’t all that interested in getting pregnant (at least not in the foreseeable future). But now Nick has given a new interview where he talks about their baby-making plans, claiming that a baby is a “major, major priority” and “like the only priority in life.” Uh-oh. I don’t think Mariah will be happy about this:

And baby makes three?

“We absolutely plan to have a family,” Nick Cannon, 29, told MTV News of his wife of nearly two years, Mariah Carey, 40.

“But we gotta prioritize, because that’s a major, major priority,” continued Cannon, who currently hosts America’s Got Talent.

“That’s like the only priority in life, when you think about it, is starting and raising a family,” he added. “We wanna make sure everything is out of the way and that we don’t have any distractions.”

Getting pregnant may have to wait until Carey is done touring to promote her newest album, Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel, Cannon said.

“She’s on tour right now, I’m doing a bunch of stuff, so eventually we want to be able to say, ‘It’s time to have a kid,’ and set everything up,” Cannon said.

“But we’re definitely moving toward [having children]. We got our house in L.A., and we got a house [in New York], established and close to schools,” he went on. “So we take all of that stuff into consideration.”

Oh, so “eventually” they’ll have a kid. Here’s the thing: I don’t blame Mariah at all for focusing on her career. She’s never been all gooey and gushy about babies and she’s never really played the “I’m ready to have a baby, wait for it, in a minute” game. She’s always made it pretty clear that her career is her priority, and that if she ever becomes a mother, it’s going to be years down the road. So… why not say right now that Mariah and Nick will eventually adopt? I think that would be really nice, if they just came out and said “Given everything we’ve got going on, we think adoption would be our best option, and that’s what we’re planning on in the years to come.”

    He’s so full of it. The top three priorities are:

    1. Helping Mimi pull up her full body Spanx. You know a bitch could give herself a hernia doing that when she’s half in the bag.

    2. Carrying Mimi’s purse ( and pocketing the loose change)

    3. Cutting the tags out of the size 14 dresses and sewing in phoney size 6 tags.

  2. Icecat says:

    She looks plastic in that picture.

  3. pd says:

    ugh why are people so baby obsessed???

  4. meme says:

    LOL @JulieNewmar. Hello God? Please don’t let these two spawn. You know Mooriah will dress the baby like a butterfly.

  5. Raven says:

    If they have any babies, Nick will be the one carrying the fetus for 9 months.

  6. mollyb says:

    I feel bad for women like her and Jennifer Aniston who honestly don’t seem to really want children but have to keep pretending that they do in order to not be seen as “baby-haters” or something.

  7. Lenn says:

    She’s 40. If she waits any longer it’s simply not going to happen. She’s already at high risk.

  8. Sumodo says:

    @Raven. DING! We have a winner!

  9. tommysgirl54 says:

    Julie Newmar: hahaha that is so true….except I would say he probably has to put in a size 2…..Mariah totes thinks that a size 6 is a fatty mc fat fat

  10. Squirrel says:

    If they do have a kid let’s hope it’s a boy…. their baby girl would be wearing make – up and miniskirts before she can walk!

  11. Stephie says:

    Oh please don’t let them reproduce.

    Ugh…cover up those gross boobs already. We don’t want to see them!

    Somebody call Madame Tussauds, the Mimi wax statue was stolen and is being carted around by Nick Cannon.

    It would probably be in Mariah and Nick’s best interests for them to adopt or hire a surrogate instead of Mariah trying to become pregnant. Truthfully, she’s “the bread winner” not Nick Cannon and I’m not putting him down but she may not want to be totally out of commission for an extended length of time to accommodate a pregnancy. If she actually becomes pregnant, their baby will be beautiful, loved and well taken care of. I wish them only the best!

    I bet you Mariah Carey thinks she looks stunningly beautiful, glamorous, and drop-dead sexy. Her husband probably reinforces that. Frankly, I think she does look sexy. But there all kinds of different ways to be sexy. There’s hooker sexy, there’s refined sexy, there’s healthy and natural sexy, etc. When she dresses up like that with her tiny tight dress exposing her breasts, she looks sexy the way a hooker looks sexy. And I don’t think she looks like an expensive hooker. I think if she walked down the city street looking the way she has lately, someone would offer her about 100 dlls. And that’s because she is pretty in a pleasant way, but she looks very sexy.

    In a way, and even though it’s a little annoying, I’m kind of happy for her, because I’m glad she feels beautiful and sexy. I think everyone should feel that way about themselves.

    I love these comments! Witty, fun, humourous and stayin’ away from the hate. I would rather listen to my cat sing than Mariah but I have seen interviews and she comes accross as a very intelligent and likeable person. And she landed Nick who has kind eyes and looks very fugable so he probably keeps her happy in bed. As for the babies, I could see them adopting an older child.

  18. Cat says:

    Can you imagine if a woman said that about her husband? Get out of the fifties Nick, it’s ok to be independent and have a job of your own! Life is more than babies!

  19. Lady D says:

    Tis my hope that Nick is blessed with extreme patience because, he will be dividing his time between daddy duty and constant reassurance to Mimi that she is still sexy, hot and desirable, while resembling Aretha’s body type. Her middle name is Diva for a reason. I also don’t see her giving up her Spanx and alcohol. The upside of her pregnancy would be a closet full of ready to wear pregnancy clothing.

    Theyre a cute couple, i dont see why everybody hates. Nick is successful in his own way, remember he hosted his own show for about five years, has had some other hosting gigs, old movies, and is the President of Nickelodeon.I dont doubt she spends on him but i bet he spends on her too. Or he wouldnt have gotten past the first date. I really dont think she wants babies. I t would make her feel old. and have to lose the baby weight.
