E! News is reporting that Nick Cannon and Mariah CareyÂ are pregnant with their first child.Â Mariah has been married to America’s Got TalentÂ host Nick Cannon since 2008.Â The couple had been dodging pregnancy rumors for months now, but a source close to the couple revealed to E! News that Carey underwent in-vitro fertilization at the Southern California Reproductive Center in Beverly Hills, California.Â
E! News did not have information on when the couple’s bundle of joy will arrive or what gender the baby is.Â Mariah’s publicist declined to comment on the report.Â However, US Magazine caught up with Nick at the Running Russell Simmons launch party in New York yesterday.Â He was asked if the couple had thought about how many children he and Mariah want.Â “Not really, I mean, it’s just whatever God blesses us with at that time, we’ll be happy with whatever it is.Â We just want a healthy child.”Â Nick also spoke out on being a father at age 30.Â “My parents were actually kids when they had me, my parents were still in high school and teenagers-and we have a beautiful relationship, I’ll probably be that same way.”
Mariah also made news headlines this week when it was reported that she was in negotiations to appear on Simon Cowell’s reality show, X Factor.Â Simon Cowell also produces Nick’s show, America’s Got Talent.Â If the pregnancy reports prove to be true, there is no word yet on if this would affect Mariah appearing on the show.
