She fuelled speculation that she was having twins when she referred to the baby as "they" in an interview, and now Nick has finally spoken out and confirmed that they are having two babies.
He confirmed the news on Rollin' With Nick Cannon radio show. He said, "In order for my wife and I to have our life, we need to be up front and I need to be able to share things with you and be real. I didn't even tell my wife I was gonna do this. I'm probably gonna get yelled at for not getting permission... We are having twins!"
Nick felt compelled to reveal the news because Mariah had already told U.S. President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle that the couple were expecting twins, and he felt it was only fair to share it with the rest of the world.
Nick explained, "They, ironically enough, questioned my wife about, you know, 'So, what are you having, are you having twins?' And at this point she hadn't told anybody anything because doctors advised us to keep it to ourselves until we get further along. And because of the excitement, because of the emotion, she was overwhelmed (and) she shared with the President and First Lady that we are having twins."
