Mariah's Co-Star Addresses Pregnancy Rumors

After Mariah Carey abruptly quit her latest movie, rumors started to swirl that she's expecting her first child with hubby Nick Cannon. Why else would she quit a Tyler Perry movie, right?

Mariah's staying mum on the pregnancy rumors for now, but that isn't stopping her co-workers (and us!) from speculating that she's preggers.

Mariah's Hubby Nick Reveals Baby Name

Mariah's now former co-star from Tyler’s Perry For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf Omari Hardwick couldn't help but wonder what we're all wondering--is she really pregnant?

"I heard that she was inexposed," Omari jokingly told Hollyscoop while pointing at his belly. "Is that the right way to put it? Inexposed?" Hoping he didn't give away too much, when asked to confirm the pregnancy he jokingly added, "C’mon I’m a dude. Ask the ladies that."

Perhaps he hasn't gotten the "great news, we're expecting" memo from Mimi yet, but one thing he could confirm is that Thandie Newton is going to replace Mariah in the Tyler Perry flick. "Thandie Newton is now doing it...Thandie has joined the cast," he said.

Mariah Carey Quits Movie for Baby

Omari added that the entire movie would take 28 days to shoot, so he's not sure why Mimi would quit the movie so soon into her alleged pregnancy. "It only takes 28 days to shoot the film, so I don’t think it will affect that. You make the call," he said. Our call? She's definitely pregnant!
