MARIAH CAREY FINALLY ADDRESSES PREGNANCY REPORTS, PLAYS COY
MARIAH CAREY has hinted there's truth behind reports she is expecting
her first child with husband NICK CANNON, confessing she's too
"superstitious" to share any baby news right now.
Speculation has followed the couple since Carey pulled out of a
Tyler Perry movie over mysterious health concerns in June (10), but
she's yet to confirm or deny whether she's a mum-to-be.
New photos of the singer performing in Brazil and sporting what
looks like a fuller figure raised fresh questions and forced Cannon to
backtrack over a recent denial. Cannon told New York's 92.3 FM radio
station on Monday (23Aug10): "When my wife feels like talking about
whatever she wants to talk about, you will hear it directly from her."
Carey then addressed the issue via a statement released by her
publicist Cindi Berger on Thursday (26Aug10). But she refused to
confirm or deny the reports - revealing even Berger doesn't know for
sure if her client is expecting.
The statement reads: "I appreciate everyone's well wishes. But I am
very superstitious. When the time is right, everyone will know - even
Carey and Cannon wed after a whirlwind romance in 2008. (JMA/WNWCHP/IG)
