Singer Mariah Carey still hasnâ€™t confirmed she is pregnant with her husband Nick Cannonâ€™s baby, but sources claims she is expecting a baby boy and waiting for the right time and opportunity to make the big announcement.
The 40 year-old is reportedly getting ready to announce the happy news in the next couple of weeks, when she will start promoting her forthcoming holiday album titled â€œMerry Christmas II Youâ€, which is set to be released on November 2, 2010.
â€œSheâ€™s having a boy, but the reason that Mariah didnâ€™t want to say anything is because she is 40, and sheâ€™s superstitious,â€ the insider says. â€œBut sheâ€™s going to appear on Oprah and The View, so sheâ€™s planning on making the announcement soon.â€
The insider says â€œthey havenâ€™t decided whether theyâ€™ll raise the baby in New York or Los Angeles.â€
The source also confirmed Mariah did indeed undergo fertility treatments to get pregnant and that is why she recently gained a lot of weight. â€œThe fertility drugs were the reason for her weight gain earlier this year,â€ explains the source. â€œShe stopped drinking back in March or April this year.â€
Congratulations to Mariah and Nick!
