Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have beaten the odds and stayed together way longer than any of us could have expected. And not only is their marriage solid as a rock, but they plan on having kids very soon!
Nick spoke recently with MTV News, saying,
"We absolutely plan to have a family. But we gotta prioritize, because that's a major, major priority.”
That would definitely mean slowing down for the both of them. Right now, both Mariah and Nick’s schedules are extremely busy. She’s been promoting her critically-acclaimed film Precious at every award show, while Nick is gearing up for the next season of America’s Got Talent. Mariah’s new album Angels Advocate is due out March 30th, after being pushed back two different times. It will feature new remixes and duets of songs from her 2009 under-achiever, Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel.
"That's like the only priority in life, when you think about it, is starting and raising a family," he added. "We wanna make sure everything is out of the way and that we don't have any distractions."
"She's on tour right now, I'm doing a bunch of stuff, so eventually we want to be able to say, 'It's time to have a kid,' and set everything up," Cannon said. "But we're definitely moving toward [having children]. We got our house in L.A., and we got a house [in New York], established and close to schools. So we take all of that stuff into consideration."
We hope they try for a baby soon! Mariah is no spring chicken at age 40, and we’d love to see them settle down!
