Mariah Carey's husband Nick Cannon has laughed off rumours that Mariah is expecting twins, explaining that Mariah simply made a slip up in a recent interview.
Mariah announced earlier this year that she and Nick are expecting their first child, and later referred to the baby as "they" in an interview.

But Nick says the slip was because Mariah was making sure she didn't mention the baby's sex, because they don't know the gender yet.
He told Access Hollywood, "That (twins) rumour 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'. She said, 'I hope they don't hate Christmas.' From there we heard all of these twin rumours... But we want to be surprised (about the sex of the baby). 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."
