Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are expecting twins

Thursday December 16, 2010

Mariah Carey is going to be a proud mum-of-two.

Her husband Nick Cannon confirmed to his radio listeners this week that the world-famous singer is pregnant with two children, telling fans: "We are having twins."

Among the first to know the happy news – President Barack Obama.

While performing at a Christmas concert in Washington last week, Mariah, 40, bumped into the US leader and First Lady Michelle backstage, Nick revealed.

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

"And because of the excitement, because of the emotion, she was overwhelmed (and) she shared with the president and First Lady that we were having twins."
