For weeks the media has speculated whether or not Mariah Carey will be having twins. The rumors began after Carey referred to her child as ‘they.’ Although husband, Nick Cannon didn’t actually confirm or deny that the couple was having multiple children, he did explain why the pair have decided to wait on finding out the sex of the baby.
“That [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 told Billy and Kit. “She said, like, ‘I hope they don’t hate Christmas.’ From there we heard all of these twin rumors.
“But we want to be surprised,” he continued.
“We were told that it’s going 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.”
Cannon also explained just how he’s keeping his wife happy and comfortable these days.
“Lots of massages, and lots of pregnancy pillows,” Nick told Billy and Kit of Access Hollywood. “That’s my thing right now — just give her a pillow and she’s happy!”
“Most of [her cravings are] really healthy,” Nick told Billy and Kit. “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,” he laughed. “I had to see if there was circus or a carnival in town!”
