If all the rumors about Mariah Carey being pregnant over the years had been true, she’d have popped out a dozen kids by now. So until we have official word from Carey and husband Nick Cannon that the diva is indeed knocked up, we’re taking this latest pregnancy rumor with a hefty grain of salt.
Mariah Carey sent the baby rumor mill into full speed again last week when her rep announced she would be dropping out of Tyler Perry‘s new film. “She is not doing the movie because her doctor advised her not to,” Carey’s rep told Us Weekly.
Now a source allegedly close to Carey and Cannon has reportedly told the tabloid the pop diva is expecting – for real this time. “Mariah’s in the first stages of pregnancy,” the source claims.
RadarOnline.com is also claiming Mariah Carey is really pregnant this time, despite any official confirmation from the couple or their reps. “They’re both very excited and very happy,” Radar Online claims a pal of the couple said. “Mariah and Nick want to keep the pregnancy quiet as long as they can.”
Mariah Carey rep Cindi Berger did not deny the pregnancy rumors when asked, but refused to comment on the story, saying only that she is “not at liberty to discuss Mariah’s personal life at this time.”
The Mariah Carey pregnancy rumors are heating up again after the diva dropped a mysterious hint at the Oscars about something “special” on the way. Carey has been plagued with rumors she is pregnant with husband Nick Cannon‘s baby quite a few times over the past year, partially due to her perpetually curvy appearance.
“I have a lot of new acting projects coming up,” Mariah Carey said told the New York Post’s Page Six. Carey said she had spoken to Precious director Lee Daniels about several movie ideas. Besides her upcoming film projects, however, Carey also said there is “something else very special on the way” but “can’t say any more” about that right now.
The mysterious statement helped launch a new round of pregnancy rumors about Carey and hubby Nick Cannon, especially since the notoriously champagne-loving singer allegedly didn’t touch a drop of alcohol at the Oscars, according to Hollywood Life. Carey’s rep, however, reportedly keeps insisting she is not preggers.
Whether she is actually knocked up this time around or not, we do have to say Mariah Carey’s bosoms were doing amazing things in her Oscar dress Sunday night. We don’t know what kind of underwire was holding those things up, but we give a hearty bravo to whoever managed that gravity-defying feat!
