Mariah Carey and husband Nick Cannon have confirmed they are expecting their first child together. Rumours that the singer was pregnant have been rife for the last couple of months but the couple finally confirmed the good news during an appearance on the Today Show in New York.
"Yes, we are pregnant. This is true. It's been tough because I've been trying to hold on to a shred of privacy," Mariah explained before revealing she suffered a miscarriage in 2008, shortly after marrying Cannon. "It kind of shook us both and took us into a place that was really dark and difficult. When that happened I wasn't able to even talk to anybody about it. That was not easy."
"It definitely brought us closer together,” Cannon added. “It strengthened our relationship so much. She handled it so well."
