Finally singer Mariah Carey has accepted that she is pregnant. The beauty brought end to the months of spectulations when she appeared on the 'The Today Show'.
Carey announced on the show that she is expecting her first child with husband Nick Cannon and they both are ‘absolutely emotional’ about it.
The pop singer admitted by saying, "Yes, we are pregnant. This is true."
"It's been a long journey. It's been tough because I've been trying to hold on to a shred of privacy," she added.
The 40-year old singer said at this point of time she was left with no choice but to share the news with the world. "At this point, there is no choice. I either talk or I hibernate,” Carey said.
Asking about her due date, she said, "It's still early."
Meanwhile, Nick who is extremely excited about the child was quoted as saying, "The greatest gift on earth is a child. We've had names picked out from the first day we met and we want to stay true to that."
The pregnancy news has come as a miracle for the pair as two years ago; Carey suffered a miscarriage.
"It kind of shook us both and took us into a place that was really dark and difficult. When that happened, I wasn't able to even talk to anybody about it. That was not easy," she said.
Carey and Nick Cannon met while they shot Carey's music video for her second single ‘Bye Bye’ on a private island of the coast of Antigua. On April 30, 2008, Carey married Cannon at her private estate on Windermere Island in The Bahamas.
