Report: Mariah Expecting a Boy

We can all pretty stop wondering if Mariah Carey is pregnant or not. Ok, she hasn’t exactly come out and confirmed it. But seriously, who is she kidding…

Now we have even more proof, since a source just came forward to HollyBaby to say not only is Mimi knocked up, but she’s having a boy too!

Mariah's Friend Congratulates Her With Baby Book

A source close to Carey and husband Nick Cannon says the two have been tight-lipped about her pregnancy, but she is expected to make an official announcement in the next couple of weeks when she begins promoting her new holiday album, Merry Christmas II You (which is being released on Nov. 2).

“She’s having a boy, but the reason that Mariah didn’t want to say anything is because she is 40, and she’s superstitious,” the insider says. “But she’s going to appear on Oprah and The View, so she’s planning on making the announcement soon.”

The insider says “they haven’t decided whether they’ll raise the baby in New York or Los Angeles.”

Mariah Carey Hates Maternity Clothes

Right now they’re in Nick’s LA home while renovations are being done on the former Bel Air home of Farrah Fawcett that Mariah bought last year for $7 million.

Mariah reportedly took fertility drugs to get pregnant. “The fertility drugs were the reason for her weight gain earlier this year,” explains the source. “She stopped drinking back in March or April this year,” the source adds.

This is so exciting for them…and, we might add, so predictable that she’s waiting til the perfect time to promote her new baby. Just in time for her new holiday album!
