Earlier this month, Nick Cannon let it slip that Mariah Carey is due in late April. This is after accidentally revealing in December that she was, in fact, pregnant with twins. Apparently, the two aren’t letting their babies’ gender be a surprise—the word on the street is that one of their babes is a boy and the other is a girl. Basically, the have ordered the sample platter of babies.
This, of course, complicates gift gifting. After the jump, the presents we’d get for Mariah and Nick’s babies, if we were invited to the shower. Which, uh, we won’t be. Rude. Keep reading »
Nick Cannon appeared on “Rachael Ray” this week, and naturally she asked him about baby names. “We always picked out a few [baby] names,” he said. “From the day we met, we picked out names … because ironically we have the same last initial—Carey and Cannon.” So the C-name that first popped into his mind? Cleophis. You heard that right—Cleophis Cannon. Yeah, even our suggestions are better than that. [E! Online] Keep reading »
“I come home yesterday to help my wife get ready for her video shoots and she has these 19-inch heels on. So I go into the closet searching for some flats for my wife … She got a lot of damn shoes — it’s like a frickin’ Macy’s. Mariah Carey does not own one pair of flat shoes. Basically, I got Mariah Carey, the high-heel queen, to put on some flats. And this is amazing. I’m going shoe shopping today, needless to say, to buy you some flat shoes.”
—Nick Cannon dished on his radio show on Friday about Mariah Carey‘s shoe wardrobe. The best part was when Mariah called in to say that she did in fact own a pair of flats—a pair of Dior ski boots. These two do know that the phrase is “barefoot and pregnant,” right? We say she should pull a Britney and skip shoes altogether. [People] Keep reading »
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

We here at The Frisky love our Chelsea Handler. But homegirl does get herself into lots of beefs. We totally understood her feuds with Michelle “Bombshell” McGee and Perez Hilton. But we’re not so sure we understand her latest Twitter war—with Nick Cannon.
It started out harmlessly enough … Keep reading »
I think it’s high time for Mariah Carey to end the speculation and just tell the world that she’s preggers already. It was Nick Cannon‘s 30th birthday this weekend, and at his party, Mariah walked around all night wearing a black trench coat over her ensemble. She also skipped taking photos, entered the club through the back entrance, and was reported to be rather anti-social. And rather than getting tipsy as per usual, she stuck to cranberry juice. Very suspicious. Or maybe she just has a UTI and feels miserable? [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
“I’m pretty sure that when my wife is ready to make any announcement it won’t be to the media, to the public, first. She’ll tell her family, she’ll tell her friends, and then, you know, when she’s ready to share with the rest of the world … [For names] we’re gonna do it like George Foreman. We’re gonna name all of our kids Mariah no matter if they’re boys or girls. … Mariah No. 1, Boy Mariah, Man Mariah, Tall Mariah. It’s gonna be a house full of people named Mariah.”
—Nick Cannon explains that he and Mariah aren’t ready to talk about the baby rumors yet. But luckily, he’s thinking baby names. What, he didn’t like our suggestions? [People] Keep reading »
And finally, we are starting to get some answers on which famous ladies are actually pregnant and which just made unfortunate wardrobe decisions involving loose-fitting tops. Yesterday, Alicia Keys announced that—yep—she is in fact preggers. And today, Radar Online has a source that says Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are indeed having a babe. For Mariah, the speculation began when she (a) plumped up, which many thought could be a sign she was trying hormone therapy for in vitro fertilization, (b) said at an awards show, “Something else very special is on the way!” and (c) dropped out of Tyler Perry’s “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide.” When Radar called Mariah’s rep for confirmation, instead of denying the pregnancy, she said, “I’m not at liberty to discuss Mariah’s personal life at this time.” Sketchy. But we are very excited for the adorable couple and are happy Mariah is joining the proud camp of hot Hollywood mamas over 40. [Radar]
Mariah has historically picked horrendous names for her movies and albums, and we don’t want to see this baby end up named Butterfly. After the jump, some name suggestions. Keep reading »
