With Merry Christmas II You out next week and a slate of promo to do for the festive LP, there was no way Mariah Carey was going to be able to dodge the questions about her rumored pregnancy. So she finally chose to sit down with Access Hollywood‘s Billy Bush for an exclusive interview that runs tonight, wherein the singer confirms that she and husband Nick Cannon are indeed expecting. The Today Show ran a clip of the one-on-one this morning. Watch below.
“It’s been a long journey, but it’s been tough because I’ve been trying… to hold onto a shred of privacy,” Carey said in the interview. “And that was not easy.”
When Bush asked Mimi how far along she is, she replied, “It’s still early, I’m expecting in the spring, I’ll say that.” Husband Nick Cannon joined his wife for the interview later on, and that’s when it was revealed that Mariah had suffered a miscarriage two years ago.
“It was really sad so we had to just, we had really to absorb this and take it in,” Mariah said.
But this time around things are moving along smoothly. So far the pair have decided to wait until the baby’s birth to find out whether it’s a boy or a girl.
Congratulations, you two!
