Mariah Carey has finally confirmed reports she’s expecting her first child. “Yes, we are pregnant, this is true!” she told Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush in an interview broadcast on Today Thursday. "It's been a long journey, but it's been tough because I've been trying to have... to hold onto a shred of privacy.” Carey also said that they don’t want to know whether the baby is a boy or a girl until it’s born. Carey also admitted that she’d been pregnant before, but had miscarried, shortly after her secret wedding to Nick Cannon. Alluding to the miscarriage, Cannon said, "Uh, it's absolutely emotional, but first, so many reasons I mean obviously the greatest gift on earth is a child," Cannon said. "But ... you know how much we have been through, you know."
