2010-10-28 14:55

Mariah Carey, one of the world’s top selling singers, said today that she is pregnant with her first child.

The Grammy Award-winning singer and her husband, “America’s Got Talent” host and rapper Nick Cannon, made the announcement in an interview broadcast on NBC’s Today Show.

“Yes, we’re pregnant, this is true. It’s still early, we’re expecting in the spring,” said Carey, confirming rumours that had been swirling for several months.

Carey (40), who also revealed that she suffered a miscarriage soon after she and Cannon (30) married in 2008, said: “It’s been a long journey, but it’s been tough because I have been trying to hold on to a shred of privacy and that was not easy.”

Carey will release her 13th studio album, “Merry Christmas II You”, next week.

During her 20-year career, she has sold more than 200?million albums, singles and videos and scored 18 No?1 songs in the US.
