America’s Got Talent: Nick Cannon Confirms He and Wife, Mariah Carey are having TWINS!

December 16, 2010 11:00 AM by Shayla Perry


After carefully dodging more rumors about their pregnancy, NBC’s America’s Got Talent host, Nick Cannon, revealed that he and wife, Mariah Carey are having twins! Cannon also let listeners of his radio show know that he and Mariah  only shared the news with two other very special people. Who? Keep reading to find out!

Well, we can all stop going back and forth over the usage of the pronoun “they,” now that Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey have confirmed that she did, in fact, slip during her recent radio interview and reveal that the couple is expecting twins. (What? We were the only ones?!)

“In order for my wife and I to have our life, we need to be up front and I need to be able to share things with you and be real,” Nick Cannon said on his 92.3 Now radio show. “I didn’t even tell my wife I was gonna do this. I’m probably gonna get yelled at for not getting permission…We are having twins!”

But listeners of Nick Cannon’s radio show weren’t the first to get the baby news. Mariah Carey recently told two big fans of hers when they asked her about the rumors–Barack and Michelle Obama!

Mariah met with the Obamas backstage when she performed for the White House Christmas special.

“They actually even questioned my wife about [the twins],” said the NBC reality show host. “She hadn’t told anybody anything! Because of the excitement and emotion, she shared [the news] with the President and the First Lady.”

So why all the secrecy–again?

“That was something that we were advised to keep close to ourselves,” said Nick Cannon before assuring fans that both babies are doing well. “Everything is A-OK! Both babies are healthy and in tip-top shape. The doctors are happy.”

Just last month, Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey opened up to Us Magazine about their struggle to conceive, and the heartbreak they endured after Mariah’s miscarriage. And now that the couple has made it this far with their TWO babies, Nick says that the tears haven’t stopped. “We still cry all the time. It’s an emotional journey.”

    I thought I remembered Mariah telling Oprah last year or the year before that she did not want kids. Period. Ever.
