It's going to be a boy for singer Mariah Carey and husband Nick Cannon. And while the two still haven't confirmed the pregnancy publicly, that's going to happen soon, too, since Mariah is scheduled to appear soon on both Oprah and The View.
According to Popeater, sources close to Mariah Carey have confirmed that she is in fact about four months pregnant and now those same sources are saying she and hubby Nick Cannon know they're having a boy.
"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.
That's pretty understandable, too. Women sustaining pregnancies later in life do face more risks, and should something have happened in the earlier stages of the pregnancy, it would have been a bit easier to deal with had the public not been privy to the secret.
HollyBaby reports that Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are completely ecstatic about the prospect of having a baby boy, but that the decision as to where to raise the child hasn't been decided. It will obviously either be Los Angeles or New York, but the two are still weighing their options on that one.
The announcement on both The View and Oprah will come just prior to Mariah Carey beginning promotions for her new Christmas album, "Merry Christmas II You," which will start within a very few weeks.
So there it is. The announcement that was unofficially made several weeks ago is soon to be made official, and the sex of the baby has even been shared by an insider. Congratulations to Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon on the impending arrival of their baby boy!
