America’s Got Talent: Nick Cannon on Diaper Duty and Discipline

December 12, 2010 08:00 AM by Shayla Perry


After last week’s “No Santa-gate,” it’s no shock that Nick Cannon, is going to be the one dishing out the discipline in the Cannon-Carey household. But now, the host of NBC’s America’s Got Talent is redeeming himself, as he talks to Access Hollywood about his wife, Mariah Carey’s pregnancy cravings, addresses the twin rumors, and tells us who’s going to be on diaper duty.

So how do you keep a pregnant diva happy?

“Lots of massages, and lots of pregnancy pillows,” Nick Cannon told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover of his wife, Mariah Carey’s pregnancy. “That’s my thing right now–just give her a pillow and she’s happy!

“Most of [her cravings are] really healthy,” revealed Nick of his superstar wife. “She’s craving a lot of fruit. She sent me out for candy apples one night. I don’t know if that still fits in the fruit category, but it was definitely a tough time. I had to see if there was a circus or a carnival in town!”

As for those annoying twin rumors…

“The [twin] rumor came from an interview Mariah did where she was talking about her Christmas album and how she’s been singing so much, and she referred to her stomach as ‘they,’” Nick Cannon explained. “She said, like, ‘I hope they don’t hate Christmas.’ From there we heard all of these twin rumors.”

(We’re betting that Mariah Carey said “they” instead of the grammatically correct “he or she,” because she’s human, and who really talks that way?!)

“But we want to be surprised,” Nick continued. “We were told that it’s going to be one of the biggest surprises of your lifetime to see what the sex of the baby is, so, we’re trying to wait. But you never know.”

And when it comes to disciplining him or her the baby, 30-year-old Nick Cannon says that’ll be up to him.

“I think I’ll probably be the strictest parent. I come from a very religious, strict family. You know, that school of thinking–’Spare the rod, spoil the child.’ I got a lot of spankings as a kid. I’m probably going to be the disciplinarian in the family.”

But who’s going to be in charge of the diapers? Did we really have to ask?

“I grew up in a house full of babies, so I’ve changed diapers all my life. I’m used to it! I can handle that.”

Nick may be the one on official diaper duty, but we reserve the right to hold on to the image of Mariah Carey changing diapers decked out in sequins and stilettos.
