BumpWatch: Mariah Carey’s Tummy Pat

12/15/2010 at 11:00 AM ET

Topping off her bump with a bow, Mariah Carey receives a tummy pat from Nick Cannon at TNT’s Christmas in Washington 2010 concert, held Sunday at the National Building Museum.

The singer’s husband isn’t the only one getting up close and personal with baby on the way — Ellen DeGeneres gave Carey’s belly a rub later that same night.

Carey, 41, is promoting her recently released album, Merry Christmas II You, and expects her first child this spring.

She looks gorgeous and glowing/radiant. I do think though she is having twins. I don’t think a woman can show that fast with their first child. Or she is due sooner. Either way she looks great and hope she enjoys the pregnancy. Looking forward to buying your new album.

How GREAT is Nick’s proud grin? They really do seem like a couple who might make it for the long haul.

Stephani on

She has that “pregnancy glow” which makes her even more beautiful. Wishing her and Nick all the best with the new addition to their family.

Ivey on

Love her, but she really needs to hire a stylist!!

Anika on

She’s radiant and she does not need to hire any stylist. She’s lovely the way she is and she’s completely natural and untouched by phony looking make-overs.

Lacey on

Both of them are beaming joy! I’m so happy they’re having a child. I love them and I can’t wait to see their child grow up.

Shannon on

That dress would be so much better without that hideous bow!

sarawara on

She has never been more beautiful! Glowing! I’m tickled for them.

Mel on

First set of Celebrity triplets? would explain why they’re being cautious with telling the media the details.

klutzy_girl on

Nick pretty much just confirmed the twins thing to E!, so yay for that!

Triplets? I’ve been waiting for celeb triplets for years, but I doubt Mariah is the one to have them.

Sonya on

Well, either she’s having twins or she’s due sooner than they said (which would not be the first time with celebrities fudging their due date).

rOyalTee on

i absolutely love mariah carey, so when i found out shes pregnant (hopefully twins) w/ nick cannon i was estatic. so hip hip hooray for them.
hopefully there wont be too many haters out there when they see how beautiful her baby will be.

Lady on

In the holiday video he just made he shows this picture and says “the new additions to our family” sure making it seem like twins…idk what the other addition he could be talking about…either way, Mariah looks so gorgeous, they looks SO beyond happy…leave her clothes alone, everyone has their own taste.

Mandy on

klutzy_girl: How did Nick confirm it to E!? I’m just curious as to what he said. Thanks.

Tiffiny on

Okay…how long has Mariah been pregnant? I seem to remember rumors of her pregnancy for like years now?

Melanie on

Sonia, we think a like…lol…She looks great and hope she continues to have a healthy pregnancy. I know celebrities sort of put them selves out into the spot light, BUT geesh leave them alone. IF they want you to know about thing I guess they will tell yall when they are ready

Holiday on

Thats one FUGLY dress

Paige on

I love Mariah and Nick together. They look so sweet and happy.

Whether they have one baby or the rumored two, there is no doubt that they will be wonderful parents and will shower their little one(s) with all the love. 🙂

CelebBabyLover on

Lady- Whoa! So I guess the interview where he said they were only having one never transpired (I was suspicious from the start about that one, since Moms & Babies never posted about it, nor was it posted about on the main PEOPLE site. My guess is that it was one of those made up tab interviews).

Anyway, finally a picture where her bump is visable! 🙂

MiB on

If I remember it correctly she was seen in a maternity dress at the end of August already, that would mean that she is at least 6-7 months along (unless she is expecting twins off course) and that’s what she looks like to me. She doesn’t strike me as someone who would don maternity wear before she has to, and most don’t start out with maternity dresses anyways since they usually have something roomy enough in the closet already, but with trousers/jeans since that’s where you notice the difference first, even before it’s really visible. Couldn’t it be that they say “they” just because they feel that “it” is too cold and impersonal to call the baby?

klutzy_girl on

Mandy, it’s on E!’s website if you want to see it.

And yup, they do have a holiday card that said new “additions” to their family.

klutzy_girl on

Actually, you know what? Nick just confirmed the twins himself on his radio show, so yay!

Bancie1031 on

Mel – I was thinking the same thing ….. Mariah is at least having twins! Either way (Singleton, Twins or Triplets) I wish Mariah a safe pregnancy along with a safe delivery with a healthy baby/ies.
Mariah looks beautiful and I can’t wait to see what she has and the name/s she chooses 🙂

Bancie1031 on

Well Nick just confirmed that it’s twins not a singleton or triplets 🙂 here is the link that I found

Amanda on

Her skin tone is so beautiful, their children will be gorgeous!

erilynne on

She is absolutely GLOWING! And Nick can’t get a bigger grin.
