Report: Mariah Carey Is Pregnant With a Baby Boy

No Comments

Although Mariah Carey and husband Nick Cannon are still playing coy about her growing belly, the couple are reportedly having a baby boy, HollyBaby reports.

"She's having a boy, but the reason that Mariah didn't want to say anything is because she is 40, and she's superstitious," the source said. "But she's going to appear on 'Oprah' and 'The View,' so she's planning on making the announcement soon."

While the couple, who wed in 2008, has yet to confirm the news, sources close to the singer tell PopEater the 40-year-old diva is indeed pregnant.

In June, Carey abruptly dropped out of Tyler Perry's new film, setting off speculation that the singer was expecting. Her rep quickly squashed the reports at the time.

Cannon has been the most vocal about the rumors, hinting that the couple's first child is on the way.

"I've said it before and I'll say it time and time again -- when my wife feels like talking about whatever she wants to talk about, you will hear it directly from her," Cannon said on his radio show in August. "There's a certain time limit that you're supposed to wait before you actually can officially say that you are."

The pair have not been shy when it comes to talking about babies. According to PEOPLE, Canon has been vocal about wanting to start a family. "We're going to do it," he said in March 2009.

We anxiously await the final word from Mariah!
