After months and months of speculation, Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have confirmed that they’re expecting a baby, due in the spring. Carey told “Access Hollywood”‘s Billy Bush (in a segment that appeared on “Today” this morning), “It’s been a long journey, but it’s been tough because I’ve been trying to have … to hold onto a shred of privacy. And that was not easy.” And in a somewhat shocking revelation, the couple said that early on in their marriage, Carey got pregnant, but then miscarried a month later. As a result, they’ve been cautious with this pregnancy, though they’re obviously overjoyed. “Uh, it’s absolutely emotional, but first, so many reasons I mean obviously the greatest gift on earth is a child,” Cannon said. “But … you know how much we have been through, you know.” [The Today Show]
