I love her! I can’t wait to find out the gender of their baby! What a beautiful little one they will have! She looks so good! Pregnancy agrees with her! πŸ™‚

I loved her first Christmas CD, I hope this one is just as good.

Nana on

Against all odds (age difference, celebrity status, etc.) I think they are a great couple and will be fine parents πŸ™‚

She said she’s due in the spring but unless she’s having twins I think she was just saying that to throw people off. Regardless she looks stunning and so happy.

Mariah looks great!

There are rumors that she and Nick are having twins, but her rep said people are making things up.

Lola Marie on

She looks stunning…definitely glowing!!! Oh & the cd is phenomenal…the track with her mother gave me goosebumps!!

Jennifer on

I think she looks wonderful, and not huge like she’s having twins. March can be considered spring, which is only 12 or 13 weeks away. She may possibly be 28 weeks already, so saying she cant be due in the spring unless she’s having twins is a little ridiculous.

i see twins LMAO

Jill on

She looks great! Glowing! My friend is due in April with her first (a boy) and looks a little bigger than she does. Everyone carries differently.

Mariah looks beautiful no matter how babies she has inside of her! While I don’t care for her music, I’m glad to hear that her pregnancy is going well. I know she’s excited!

Mandy on

hayley w on

Recently, Mariah Carey appeared on Radio Disney to discuss her holiday album, during her explanations of the songs and saying that she sings songs to her baby bump, she stated, β€œI just hope that they don’t turn out hating Christmas!” hmm, i guess we will have to wait a few more months to see the results.

Krissa on

I was going to post the same thing Sky said!
They played it on Entertainment Tonight.

Julie on

So far, the only twins I can see are on her chest! lol She looks amazing, so happy.

Suzy on

I heard that she was having twins. All the rumors started when she was discussing her pregnancy and she said “they” so that led to people thinking she was having twins.

I hope she is. I think that would be awesome for them after all they’ve gone through to have a baby.

Maddie on

The only reason Mariah said I hope ‘they’ don’t hate Christmas, was because she doesn’t know if the baby is a boy or girl, and doesn’t want to call it ‘it’. I don’t think she’s having twins, but you never know. Mariah does even look pregnant in this photo… its very heartwarming to see her so happy.

Mia on

I don’t think it’s twins-she seems like she is pretty far along. Angelina Jolie already looked 8 months pregnant when she was 4 months along-As long as the baby is happy and healthy. Excited for them!

Ari on

she has that “girl” look about her.

Rosy on

Holy boobies batman!

CelebBabyLover on

Maddie- Exactly! Most likely, she just doesn’t want to use “it” to refer to the baby, and “he or she” can get a bit long after awhile! I also agree that she doesn’t even look pregnant in this photo! I don’t know how people are seeing twins when I’m not even seeing a bump!

Also, if she IS expecting twins, why haven’t they announced it?

CelebBabyLover on

I also actually hope Mariah ISN’T having twins. Because if she is, everyone will be screaming that she had fertilty treatments!

Blubb on

She looks so happy in that picture. I hope she will have a great pregnancy.

bb on

CelebBabyLover- Uh, why would she have to announce it if she is having twins? Is it so far-fetched to imagine that she may want to keep it private?

Regardless, Mariah looks great!

Amanda on

FYI – she may be wearing a device that shields her tummy from the sounds and such which would make her appear larger πŸ™‚

D on

God help her, when she starts breastfeeding. She won’t have any place to put those things.

sky on

mariah did get fertility help, and remember that photo of them leaving the fertility clinic looking happy. so it may be likely she is having twins….

Erica on

She looks gorgeous. I’ve been a fan of Mariah for a long time and am thrilled for her! She and Nick are going to be amazing parents.

lisa on

well if shes due in march..I think shes right on! I am due in march..and that looks like me…25 weeks here..

CelebBabyLover on

sky- Mariah has never said that she had help to concieve. And people go to fertility clinics for reasons other than to have treatments. For example, Mariah could have been getting tested to see if she had any fertility issues. Or maybe she was having a pre-conception check-up?

simi on

in her interview she said that she had two surgeries to fix things and took shots to get pregnant, to me that is medical help, but it’s so common these days that i am not really sure. as long as she has a health and happy baby who cares how many or how they came into this world. congratulations to the happy couple
