[artist id="976"]Mariah Carey[/artist] is finally addressing all those pregnancy rumors. However, the singer won’t exactly confirm or deny whether she is expecting a bundle of joy. The rumors have been following the singer around since late spring when she dropped out of Tyler Perry’s forthcoming movie “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf” and were sparked again this week when Carey was seen at a show in Barretos, Brazil, looking pregnant.
“I appreciate everyone’s well wishes. But I am very superstitious,” she wrote on her website on Wednesday (August 26), Usmagazine.com reports. “When the time is right, everyone will know — even Cindi Berger [my publicist].”
While she might be keeping tight-lipped about the rumors, the celebrity website further reports that Carey was seen wearing maternity clothes, specifically a $140 Pea in the Pod spaghetti-strap halter maternity dress, in Brazil last weekend.
Much in the same vein as his wife, Nick Cannon has remained mum on the subject, playing coy when addressing the rumors on his radio show earlier this week. “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,” he said. “We all know it’s extremely personal, and it is for a woman to deal with things with her body, and especially when dealing with the idea of childbirth and all that stuff.
“That’s something you want to keep near and dear and as close to you as you possibly can, until you’re 100 percent sure, in any situation,” he continued. “There’s a certain time limit you’re supposed to wait before you can actually officially say that you are and all that stuff. You don’t want to mislead anybody.”
