Mariah IS having twins, Nick Cannon confirms... and the Obamas were the first to know!



Happy news: It has been confirmed that Mariah Carey is expecting twins

Ever since Mariah Carey referred to her unborn child as 'they', the rumour that she was having twins has refused to go away.

And despite flatly denying the claims only a week ago, her husband Nick Cannon has finally confirmed the rumours.

The radio DJ told listeners today on his radio show Rollin With Nick Cannon, 'We are having twins.'

And Cannon added that the President and First Lady were the first to be privy to the secret.

The 30-year-old, who married Carey in April 2008, told listeners that his wife was chatting to the Obamas backstage at TNT's Christmas in Washington on Sunday when they asked her about the pregnancy.

'They, ironically enough, questioned my wife about, you know, "So, what are you having, are you having twins?"' he said.

'And at this point she hadn't told anybody anything because doctors advised us to keep it to ourselves until we get further along.'

Pssst... are you having twins, then? Carey let the news slip chatting backstage to the Obamas on Sunday at the Christmas in Washington event

'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.'

The America's Got Talent host hinted at the news yesterday, telling E!: 'It's a touchy issue, because you never want to speak on too much stuff too early.'

'But my wife, at one time, she said, well she referred to her stomach as "they" and that probably wasn't the wrong thing for her to do,' he said. 'That's all I'm gonna say.'

Father-to-be: Her husband Nick Cannon confirmed the news on his radio show

The 40-year-old singer referred to her unborn child as 'they' in an interview with Radio Disney.

'I just hope that they don't turn out hating Christmas!' she joked.

But just last week, Cannon was still attempting to cover up the slip-up, explaining that Mariah used the plural term to cover both male and female sexes.

'That rumor started because she said something about "they". Something like, "I hope they don’t hate Christmas,” but she was using the word "they" as in, like, he and she,' he told Us Magazine.

But thanks to the Obamas, the cat is now well and truly out of the bag.

Mariah said she had been 'excited' to share the news with the President and the First Lady and it had been a 'very special moment'.

The singer announced in October that she is expecting her first baby with husband Nick Cannon.

Mariah has been open about the effects her pregnancy has had on her body, claiming to be 'exhausted' and 'nauseous'.

Vowing to reveal as little as possible about the pregnancy after suffering a miscarriage two years ago, the couple have not revealed the babies' due date.
The twins are thought to be due in spring 2011.

Carey, the self-professed 'Queen of Christmas,' recently released "Merry Christmas II You' - her 13th studio album.
